Expositor’s Bible Modules
The Expositor's Bible was originally released in eight series, starting in 1887.
The set was completed in 1896. The general editor was Sir William Robertson Nicoll,
but he didn't write any of the individual commentaries. Each of the commentaries
was written by a man that Nicoll thought eminently qualified for each individual
In a modern sense, we might consider this an eclectic collection. Many denominations
are represented by these 29 different authors. Some of their denominational loyalties
may be seen in their writings.
Not all of these volumes are of equal value. Some are excellent (like the volumes
by Alexander Maclaren, as an example), while others, are, well, “less than excellent.”
The overall quality of the set, though, is very good.
49 Volume Complete Set of .topx/.gbk.twm Modules eSTW
This set was originally published in the 49 volumes listed just above. It is not
a standard “verse by verse” commentary; it includes a tremendous amount of topical
material that is not easily categorized in the eS/TW “Commentary format.” OMLB originally
released this set as individual topic files (available just above). Josh Bond of
BibleSupport.com took those raw materials and built a .cmtx file. I think the .topx
format for these files will be more helpful for the Bible student. However, I believe
many DDTers will prefer the .cmtx format, so I’ve made it available. Please remember
that this set includes topical material not easily categorized in the verse by verse
format, so the most helpful comment on any particular text may not be exactly where
you would expect to logically (that is, textually) find it.
