Carroll, BH - Interpretation of the English Bible (17 vols) Pocket E Sword Version
An Interpretation of the English Bible is a 17 volume study of the Bible by Benajah Harvey Carroll (1843-1914).
Interpretation is not a verse-by-verse commentary, but instead examines sections (usually chapters) of Scripture, suitable for classes and as a Biblical survey. The sections contain expository comments, consistent with Carroll's statement that this is not a commentary on the Bible, but an interpretation of the Bible. Each section contains questions about the content.
About the Author
Benajah Harvey Carroll (1843–1914), Southern Baptist pastor, educator and controversialist. Born in Mississippi, Carroll received formal education at Baylor University (then Waco University). During the Civil War he served in the Texas Rangers as well as in the Confederate army. After the war he served various Baptist churches in Texas, including First Baptist Church in Waco (1871–1899). In 1899 he became corresponding secretary for the Texas Baptist Education Commission. During the years 1872–1905 he taught theology at Baylor and then organized Baylor Theological Seminary in 1905. In 1908 the seminary was chartered as Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and moved to Fort Worth in 1910. Carroll was president of the seminary until his death in 1914. A popular preacher, Carroll was an able spokesman for Southern Baptist doctrine and polity, promoting evangelism and attacking heresy. Largely self-educated, he wrote extensively, with some thirty-three volumes published.
From the Introduction:
My theme is a thrilling one — THE ENGLISH BIBLE. The most natural construction of this topic calls for a history of the Bible in English from the earliest crude version in this tongue to the latest version, and for a summing up of the value of these versions in their traceable effect on our language and literature, on individual character, on the family, the unit of society, on business and commerce, on national policy, legislation and life, and on world evangelization, civilization and unity.
A less natural construction allows the more timely discussion of the value of a thorough study of the whole Bible in English by English-speaking people.
In expressing a preference for this less natural construction of the demands of the topic, I do not seek to disparage the interesting character and importance of the discussion as delimited by the first construction. No event in any nation’s history can be more momentous and far-reaching than the giving to them of the Word of God in their mother tongue and allowing it to be an open book at every fireside, with no page or promise or precept darkened by the proscriptive shadow of priest or state. The book is for the people themselves. It is God’s message to man and is addressed in all its sublime simplicity to the individual heart and conscience, obligating the personal responsibility of private judgment.
