Whedon, Daniel - Whedon's Commentary on the Bible (14 vols)
Whedon, Daniel D.
9.x - 10.x
Dr. Daniel D. Whedon was a central figure in the struggle between Calvinism and Arminianism. He devoted 25 years to writing the New Testament commentaries. Other authors wrote the Old Testament commentaries with Whedon serving as the editor.
Whedon's Commentary is "intended for popular use by laypeople". Although the commentary is very comprehensive (22,000+ verse by verse comments), the work has a concise and easy to read feel. Whedon analyzes the entire Bible, providing the background, history, message, and historical and contemporary relevance of each Old and New Testament book. Each volume includes introductions to the text, illustrations, and maps.
Scholarly yet easily readable, this resource offers a comprehensive intellectual, historical, and spiritual survey of the riches found in the Bible. Whedon conducts brief word study or analysis of Greek and Hebrew, yet the reader is not expected to have any original language knowledge.
Whedon references the Pulpit Commentary, Speaker's Commentary, Lange's Commentary, John Kitto's works, and the Expositor's Bible.
About Daniel D. Whedon
Daniel Whedon was born in 1808 in Onondaga, N.Y. Dr. Whedon was well qualified as a commentator. He was professor of Ancient Languages in Wesleyan University, studied law and had some years of pastoral experience. He was editor of the Methodist Quarterly Review for more than twenty years. Besides many articles for religious papers he was also the author of the well-known and important work, Freedom of the Will. Dr. Whedon was noted for his incisive, vigorous style, both as preacher and writer. He died at Atlantic Highlands, N.J., June 8, 1885.
The New Testament part of the series is the ablest Methodist commentary since the days of Adam Clarke, and is in many respects superior to that monumental work. The Old Testament books were committed to various scholars who have wrought well, but unequally, on their respective tasks.
—Southern Methodist Review
For the laborious work of construction, for accuracy of workmanship, and for general attraction of page, the present number of the series should be accepted with gratitude by the church.
[We] seldom get hold of a book of ‘Notes on the Scriptures’ that we feel like sitting down to read carefully through; yet such has been our desire with these successive volumes.
In its own field it is matchless.
—N. W. Christian Advocate
