For the preacher or teacher who wants the best of both worlds, topical sermon preparation and expository preparation, this commentary by Joseph Exell is a tremendous resource. It also includes a wide range of other contributors who add theological, historical and textual scholarship.
The Preacher’s Homiletic Commentary (37 Volumes) is a trusted sermon preparation resource by one of the most prolific Bible commentary editors of all time. Joseph S. Exell, one of the two lead editors of the famous Pulpit Commentary, and the producer of the voluminous Biblical Illustrator, produced this set specifically for preachers, by preachers. Since its publication it has been used by generations of ministers seeking a comprehensive tool for accessing deeper material. It offers much more critical material than many homiletic works offer, while still offering rich illustrative content to complete the sermon preparation process.
Known for its excellent thematic sections, the commentary set guides preachers and teachers in developing series of lessons with solid thematic treatments, while also supporting an expository and text-centered study of scriptures studied. Exell also offers rich gleanings from his lifelong work as a collector of illustrations, sermon outlines and relevant stories to augment the sermon preparation process.
