Tab Name:

"This is not a Bible Commentary in the usual sense of that term. It is a pastor's commentary of sermons...

Instead of going minutely through any book verse by verse, the first object will be to discover its governing idea or principal purpose, and to make that clear by taking out of the book, say twelve, twenty, or thirty instances most strikingly illustrative of the writer's intention."

"If I were in London on the Lord's Day and had already heard Spurgeon preach, I would hasten to the City Temple and there sit at the feet of Joseph Parker, whose congregations were second in size only to those of Spurgeon" — Warren Wiersbe

A Commentary of Sermons
This 27 volume work (28 megabytes of text) is a "commentary of sermons" as Joseph Parker preached through the Bible. Most sermons include a prayer with the sermon.

To broaden the scope of the Church's ministry, Dr. Parker initiated Thursday-noon services, meant to entice working people during their noontime break. Though some had initial doubts, this program was immediately popular, and remained so for thirty years. When he was fifty-four, Joseph Parker used these Thursday services to launch The People's Bible project. He would deliver an unbroken series of seemingly impromptu expositions on the whole Bible, with a stenographer recording his words.

This task occupied him for seven years, producing over a thousand messages in 28 volumes. One witness to these services described the preacher's method of sermon preparation and presentation:

"He is an extempore preacher, but not an extempore thinker...the subject...being considered for days. His topics are ruminated over, looked at on every side, and through and through until they become part of his spiritual self. When he announced his text, he does not know what his first sentence will be: it comes with the inspiration of the moment."

e-Sword Version
The author's verse-specific "Handfuls of Purpose" comments at the end of many books have been incorporated into the commentary as verse comments. The commentary occasionally include topical comments/sermons which were moved to the included Topic file. To provide context, a brief comment is included noting where the text appeared in the commentary.

About the Author
Two of the most famous Christians in the Victorian Era in England were Charles Spurgeon and Joseph Parker. Early in their ministries they fellowshipped and even exchanged pulpits. His stimulating and original sermons, with their notable leaning towards the use of a humor, pithy, and racy vernacular, made him one of the best known personalities of his time. Dr Parker was twice chairman of the London Congregational Board and twice of the Congregational Union of England and Wales.

Another outstanding job!
WOW that was fast, thanks Josh!!!!

Fantastic Josh, if i may be so forward, I managed to get a number of Joseph Parker People`s Bibles made available by the Internet Archive.


Thank you so much for all of your hard work Josh! I am sure that this huge library on J.P`s Sermons will be very
advantageous to my collection of literary documents etc;


Thank you



I was excited to find when I loaded this module into my e-Sword that it loaded both in the commentaries and the reference section.

And such a wealth of knowledge that we are able to glean from this.

Thanks for this gift.


Good morning saints, can anyone show me how to view my downloads. God less. Shalom!
