Featured in this collection are three critical and exegetical commentaries by Moses Stuart (1780-1852)—on Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Book of Daniel (also available for purchase separately). Stuart served as Professor of Sacred Literature in the Andover Theological Seminary, from 1809 until 1848. He was a pioneering American scholar in the area of Hebrew studies, Biblical exegesis (hermeneutics), and as one of the first to become especially acquainted with the rising tide of German critical scholarship. He is best known today for his writing on the interpretation of Biblical prophecy, which include his commentaries on Daniel and the book of Revelation. He also had an influence—largely through students such as Adoniram Judson—on the foreign missions movement in America.
