File Name: Preacher's Complete Homiletical Commentary (37 vols)

File Submitter: Josh Bond

File Submitted: 16 Jun 2014

File Category: Commentaries

Author: Exell, Joseph
e-Sword Version: 9.x - 10.x

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.
