The One Volume Bible Commentary

by John R. Dummelow

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
308169,665 (4.4)None
One of the most popular Bible commentaries of all time, Dummelow's massive but accessible work is both complete and concise, making it a favorite reference standard that has been used and appreciated by Christians of many denominations. It provides in a single large but convenient volume the essential scholarly information needed by every minister and student of the Bible. As Bishop Anderson of the Diocese of Chicago has said, it contains "more information attractively presented than can be found in the same amount of space in the whole realm of Bible Literature." Preachers and theologians of various faiths have paid tribute to its "conservative liberalism," which combines religious reverence with academic rigor. The book includes dozens of charts and maps, insight and clarification on nearly every scriptural verse, and an entire series of introductory articles on historical and theological topics. In addition, this edition has been completely redesigned, newly typeset for ease of reading, and printed on acid-free archival-quality paper, making it a valuable addition to any reader's library. Dummelow's commentary is a must-have reference work for every serious student of the Bible.… (more)

The book SEEMS to be a mix of some orthodox doctrine and that influenced by higher critcism, depending on the introductory article read and the individual commentator. Examples: Tends toward non-Mosiac authorship of the Pentateuch; defines Genesis 1-11 as Hebrew tradition regarding the early history of the world and man; supports multiple authors of Isaiah; denies "that God would punish the innocent, or that for the sake of punishment inflicted on the innocent He could justly spare the guilty"; but appears to accept the bodily resurrection of Jesus, although it is possible I am being deceived by careful wording. I would welcome any comments if you have knowledge of this commentary or the character of commentaries written in that time period. I found interesting that when I did a search on the editor, I found the commentary referenced at the website, Zarahemia Research Foundation, an apologetic for the Book of Mormon.
