Whole Bible Homiletics Sermons/Outlines Sermon Helps Theology of Preaching Pastoral Word Study
Exell, Joseph

e-Sword Version:
9.x - 10.x

Tab Name:

The Preacher's Complete Homiletical Commentary, edited by Joseph Exell, is a practical and thorough aid for sermon (and lesson) planning, preparation, and study. Spanning 37 volumes and nearly 19,000 pages, this is one of the largest e-Sword commentaries ever created.

Written for preachers, by preachers (see list below)—anyone who teaches or studies the Word of God will profit from this expository preaching resource!

The analytical and organizational structure allows for:
  • Clear and engaging sermons and bible studies.
  • Substantial guidance on application of the Bible to the audience
  • Theological outlines of passages
  • Expository, Explanatory, Suggestive, and Critical Notes
  • Quotes from famous preachers, scholars, and authors.
  • Sermon/passage/verse illustrations.
Passage Work Flow
The passage work flow usually includes (with some variations):

Critical Notes >>>

Main Homiletics of the Paragraph >>>

Suggestive Comments on the Verses >>>

Illustrations of Verses/Passages

Note on the Editor: Joseph Exell also edited The Pulpit Commentary and Biblical Illustrator.

[Homiletics is the art of preparing sermons and preaching. Those who study homiletics seek to improve their skill at communicating biblical topics.]

A Better Layout
This presentation differs from the printed edition and other electronic editions (that seek to divide the commentary by passage or verse):

Critical Notes:

Printed: Listed separately before all comments.

Other Electronic: Listed in the first verse of a chapter (i.e. Gen. 1:1 contains critical notes on Gen. 1:1-1:31)

e-Sword: Critical Notes for each verse listed with that verse’s comments (i.e. Gen. 1:21-28 contains the Critical Notes for Gen. 1:21-28—rather than lumping the Critical Notes for whole chapter into Gen 1:1 or listed separately).


Printed: Listed separately after all comments.

Other Electronic: Listed in the last verse of a chapter (i.e. Exo 1:22 contains all sermon illustrations for all verses in the chapter).

e-Sword: Illustrations for each verse listed with that verse’s comments. (i.e. Exodus 1:1 contains that verse’s illustrations rather than being lumped into the last verse, Exodus 1:22)


Printed: Bottom of page.

Other Electronic: Missing

e-Sword: Footnotes are below paragraph where referenced

Other layout changes: The printed version saved space by combining multiple sections into one paragraph. For example, Roman numerals I. – VI. might be in one paragraph, with the numeral and heading sentence bolded. Here, we began a new paragraph between sections to avoid the lengthy paragraphs that spanned multiple pages in the printed edition.

Thanks for the resources, They are very useful.

Hi Josh


My PHC and pulpit commentary is refusing to set up on my PC...I downloaded it on my PC e-sword files but when i double click it refuses to set up and it keeps telling me that the file is already existing.



Thank you so very much for these amazing Commentaries....

Thank you


Existe una versión de descarga con texto en español?

Josh thank you so much for all your hard work at providing these resources to be used with eSword. I am having the same trouble with the PHC that others are experiencing. I used the iFunbox as suggested and had the same results. Not sure if the PC to Apple Module Converter is corrupting the file or not. Do you have another suggestion? Thank you again brother.

Anyone been able to make this work on the mac version of e-Sword X?

I've tried using iFunBox and the iTunes way and they both seem to do the same thing.  I've used the iPad module provided here as well as used convert.exe to create a PHC module (which is much bigger by the way) and they both seem to do the same thing.  I've tried deleting eSword HD and reinstalling it and just adding PHC and it seems to do the same thing.  I've tried it with eSwordHD running...and then restart, or not running and then open it and still the same thing.  I"ve tried 3 different versions of iFunBox and still the same thing. The "same thing" is that when I copy the file over to the iPad from my Windows PC it shows the file.  I can close iFunBox, for example, and re-open it, and go back to eSword HD again and the file is still there.  Then I close and open (or just open if it is closed) eSword HD and PHC.cmti goes away (like almost all of the other modules I install on my iPad in eSword HD) BUT the commentary list does not show PHC.  I have converted several modules from BibleSupport for my iPad and they all seem to work except for PHC.  Any other suggestions?  I'm using an iPad Air 1 (128GB WIFI), and a relatively mid to high end PC running Windows 10 x64.

how do I install this on my mac? I am new to sword 

Hi Josh,

The best  can say about this:

This file has been reported as broken because: I can't download preacher's complete Homiletical Commentary (37 vols)


is that, "Nah; it ain't broken."


I've downloaded all three files listed in the download page, and here are the results:

  • phc (iPad-iPhone).zip 100% downloaded. No issues.

  • phc (pc-manual install).zip 100% downloaded. No issues.

  • phc (pc-self installing).exe 100% downloaded. No issues.

This test was performed using Firefox version 46.0.1


If you or anyone else would like to test the download of this resource, and post the results, it would really be helpful.




The downloads work just fine...and when you try to install them...they appear to install from the PC perspective.  PHC works fine with e-Sword on a Windows PC.  But when you install the iPad-iPhone.zip version on your iPad or iPhone (well, my iPad and my iPhone) they appear to copy over just fine, but when you open up eSword on the iPad and iPhone PHC is never there.  Since you say "Nah; it ain't broken" can you tell me what iPad and what iPhone you installed the iPad/iPhone version on and how you installed it?
