Excerpt from The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, Vol. 2: Clement-Heresh

Ill. Range of Commentaries. - No book in the world has been made the subject of so much com menting and exposition as the Bible. Theological libraries are full of commentaries of all descriptions and all grades of worth. Some are commentaries on the original Heb or Gr texts; some on the Eng. Or other vss. Modern commentaries are usually accompanied with some measure of introduction to the books commented upon; the more learned works have commonly also some indication of the data for the determination of the textual readings (see criticism, textual). Few writers are equal to the task of commenting with profit on the Bible as a whole, and, with the growth of knowledge, this task is now seldom attempted. Frequently, how ever, one writer contributes many valuable works, and sometimes, by co<5peration of like-minded scholars, commentaries on the whole Bible are pro duced. It is manifestly a very slight survey that can be taken in a brief art. Of the work of comment ing, and of the literature to which it has given rise; the attempt can only be made to follow the lines most helpful to those seeking aid from this class of books. On the use and abuse of commentaries by the preacher, C. H. Spurgeon's racy remarks in his Commenting and Commentaries may be con sulted.
