“St Mark, with Notes by the Rev. G. F. MACLEAR, D.D. Into this small volume Dr Maclear, besides a clear and able Introduction to the Gospel, and the text of St Mark, has compressed many hundreds of valuable and helpful notes. In short, he has given us a capital manual of the kind required-containing all that is needed to illustrate the text, i.e. all that can be drawn from the history, geography, customs, and manners of the time. But as a handbook, giving in a clear and succinct form the information which a lad requires in order to stand an examination in the Gospel, it is admirable......I can very heartily commend it, not only to the senior boys and girls in our High Schools

, but also to Sunday-school teachers, who may get from it the very kind of knowledge they often find it hardest to get." - Expositor.

With the help of a book like this, an intelligent teacher may make Divinity' as interesting a lesson as any in the school course. The notes are of a kind that will be, for the most part, intelligible to boys of the lower forms of our public schools; but they may be read with greater profit by the fifth and sixth, in conjunction with the original text.”—The Academy.

“St Luke. Canon FARRAR has supplied students of the Gospel with an admirable manual in this volume. It has all that copious variety of illustration, ingenuity of suggestion, and general soundness of interpretation which readers are accustomed to expect from the learned and eloquent editor. Anyone who has been accustomed to associate the idea of 'dryness' with a commentary, should go to Canon Farrar's St Luke for a more correct impression. He will find that a commentary may be made interesting in the highest degree, and that without losing anything of its solid value....But, so to speak, it is too good for some of the readers for whom it is intended.”The Spectator.

The Gospel according to St John. "The notes are extremely scholarly and valuable, and in most cases exhaustive, bringing to the elucidation of the text all that is best in commentaries, ancient and modern.”The English Churchman and Clerical Journal.

“(1) The Acts of the Apostles. By J. Rawson LUMBY, D.D. (2) The Second Epistle of the Corinthians, edited by Professor LIAS. The introduction is pithy, and contains a mass of carefully selected information on the authorship of the Acts, its designs, and its sources.

. The Second Epistle of the Corinthians is a manual beyond all praise, for the excellence of its pithy and pointed annotations, its analysis of the contents, and the fulness and value of its introduction."-Examiner.

"The Rev. H. C. G. MOULE, D.D., has made a valuable addition to THE CAMBRIDGE BIBLE FOR SCHOOLS in his brief commentary on the Epistle to the Romans. The 'Notes' are very good, and lean, as the notes of a School Bible should, to the most commonly accepted and orthodox view of the inspired author's meaning ; while the Introduction, and especially the Sketch of the Life of St Paul, is a model of condensation. It is as lively and pleasant to read as if two or three facts had not been crowded into well-nigh every sentence."-Expositor.

“The Epistle to the Romans. It is seldom we have met with a work so remarkable for the compression and condensation of all that is valuable in the smallest possible space as in the volume before us. Within its limited pages we have a sketch of the Life of St Paul,' we have further a critical account of the date of the Epistle to the Romans, of its language, and of its genuineness. The notes are numerous, full of matter, to the point, and leave no real difficulty or obscurity unexplained.”—The Examiner.

Galatians. “Dr PEROWNE deals throughout in a very thorough manner with every real difficulty in the text, and in this respect he has faithfully followed the noble example set him in the exegetical masterpiece, his indebtedness to which he frankly acknowledges.”Modern Church.

“This little work, like all of the series, is a scholarly production; but we can also unreservedly recommend it from a doctrinal standpoint; Dr E. H. PEROWNE is one who has grasped the distinctive teaching of the Epistle, and expounds it with clearness and definiteness. In an appendix, he ably maintains the correctness of the A. V. as against the R. V. in the translation of II. 16, a point of no small importance.”— English Churchman.

The Epistle to the Ephesians. By Rev. H. C. G. MOULE, D.D. “It seems to us the model of a School and College Commentarycomprehensive, but not cumbersome; scholarly, but not pedantic." Baptist Magazine.

The Epistle to the Philippians. “There are few series more valued by theological students than ‘The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges, and there will be no number of it more esteemed than that by Mr H. C. G. MOULE on the Epistle to the Philippians.Record.

Thessalonians. “It will stand the severest scrutiny, for no volume in this admirable series exhibits more careful work, and Mr FINDLAY is a true expositor, who keeps in mind what he is expounding, and for whom he is expounding it.”—Expository Times.

“Mr FINDLAY maintains the high level of the series to which he has become contributor. Some parts of his introduction to the Epistles to the Thessalonians could scarcely be bettered. The account of Thessalonica, the description of the style and character of the Epistles, and the analysis of them are excellent in style and scholarly care. The notes are possibly too voluminous; but there is so much matter in them, and the matter is arranged and handled so ably, that we are ready to forgive their fulness.... Mr FINDLAY's commentary is a valuable addition to what has been written on the letters to the Thessalonian Church.”Academy.

“Mr FINDLAY has fulfilled in this volume a task which Dr Moulton was compelled to decline, though he has rendered valuable aid in its preparation. The commentary is in its own way a model-clear, forceful, scholarly—such as young students will welcome as a really useful guide, and old ones will acknowledge as giving in brief space the substance of all that they knew."--Baptist Magazine.

The Epistles to Timothy and Titus. This is another contriwution to “The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges,' and one that is entirely true to the general idea of that excellent series. The pastoral epistles have unusual difficulties, if they have also a very peculiar ecclesiastical interest. They are well handled on the whole in both these respects by Mr Humphreys...... The book is a good piece of work, quite worthy of the place it occupies in the series.”—The Daily Free Press.

“The series includes many volumes of sterling worth, and this last may rank among the most valuable. The pages evince careful scholarship and a thorough acquaintance with expository literature; and the work should promote a more general and practical study of the Pastoral Epistles.”The Christian.

Hebrews. “ Like his (Canon Farrar's) commentary on Luke it possesses all the best characteristics of his writing. It is a work not only of an accomplished scholar, but of a skilled teacher."-Baptist Magazine.

The Epistles of St John. By the Rev. A. PLUMMER, D.D. “This forms an admirable companion to the 'Commentary on the Gospel according to St John,' which was reviewed in The Churchman as soon as it appeared. Dr Plummer has some of the highest qualifications for such a task; and these two volumes, their size being considered, will bear comparison with the best Commentaries of the time.”—The Churchman.

Revelation. "This volume contains evidence of much careful labour. It is a scholarly production, as might be expected from the pen of the late Mr W. H. SIMCoX.... The notes throw light upon many passages of this difficult book, and are extremely suggestive. It is an advantage that they sometimes set before the student various interpretations without exactly guiding him to a choice.”Guardian.

“Mr Simcox has treated his very difficult subject with that conscious care, grasp and lucidity which characterises everything he wrote.”-Modern Church.

The Smaller Cambridge Bible for Schools.

We can only repeat what we have already said of this admirable series, containing, as it does, the scholarship of the larger work. For scholars in our elder classes, and for those preparing for Scripture examinations, no better commentaries can be put into their hands.”—Sunday, School Chronicle.

Despite their small size, these volumes give the substance of the admirable pieces of work on which they are founded. We can only hope that in many schools the class-teaching will proceed on the lines these commentators suggest.–Record.

We should be glad to hear that this series has been introduced into many of our Sunday-Schools, for which it is so admirably adapted.Christian Leader.

All that is necessary to be known and learned by pupils in junior and elementary schools is to be found in this series. Indeed, much more is provided than should be required by the examiners. We do not know what more could be done to provide sensible, interesting, and solid Scriptural instruction for boys and girls. The Syndics of the Cambridge

University Press are rendering great services both to teachers and to scholars by the publication of such a valuable series of books, in which slipshod work could not have a place.”—Literary World.

For the student of the sacred oracles who utilizes hours of travel or moments of waiting in the perusal of the Bible there is nothing so handy, and, at the same time, so satisfying as these little books..... Nor let anyone suppose that, because these are school-books, therefore they are beneath the adult reader. They contain the very ripest results of the best Biblical scholarship, and that in the verypimplest form.—Christian Leader.

Altogether one of the most perfect examples of a Shilling New Testament commentary which event tips age of cheapness is likely to produce.— Bookseller.

Samuel I. and II. “Professor KIRKPATRICK's two tiny volumes on the First and Second Books of Samuel are quite model school-books; the notes elucidate every possible difficulty with scholarly brevity and clearness and a perfect knowledge of the subject.”Saturday Review.

“They consist of an introduction full of matter, clearly and succinctly given, and of notes which appear to as to be admirable, at once full and brief."-Church Times.

Kings I. “We can cordially recommend this little book. The Introduction discusses the question of authorship and date in a plain but scholarly fashion, while the footnotes throughout are brief, pointed, and helpful."-Review of Reviews.

St Matthew. "The notes are terse, clear, and helpful, and teachers and students cannot fail to find the volume of great service."Publishers' Circular.

St Mark. St Luke. “We have received the volumes of St Mark and St Luke in this series.... The two volumes seem, on the whole, well adapted for school use, are well and carefully printed, and have maps and good, though necessarily brief, introductions. There is little doubt that this series will be found as popular and useful as the well-known larger series, of which they are abbreviated editions.”—Guardian.

St Luke. We cannot too highly commend this handy little book to all teachers."—Wesleyan Methodist Sunday-School Record.

St John. “We have been especially interested in Mr PLUMMER'S treatment of the Gospel which has been entrusted to his charge. He is concise, comprehensive, interesting, and simple. Young students of this inimitable book, as well as elder students, even ministers and teachers, may use it with advantage as a very serviceable handbook.”Literary World.

“A model of condensation, losing nothing of its clearness and force from its condensation into a small compass. Many who have long since completed their college curriculum will find it an invaluable handbook.” -Methodist Times.

Acts. “The notes are very brief, but exceedingly comprehensive, comprising as much detail in the way of explanation as would be needed by young students of the Scriptures preparing for examination. We again give the opinion that this series furnishes as much real help as would usually satisfy students for the Christian ministry, or even ministers themselves.”Literary World.


FOR SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES with a Revised Text, based on the most recent critical authorities,

and English Notes. Has achieved an excellence which puts it above criticism.”—Expositor.

St Matthew. Copious illustrations, gathered from a great variety of sources, make his notes a very valuable aid to the student. They are indeed remarkably interesting, while all explanations on meanings, applications, and the like are distinguished by their lucidity and good sense.”—Pall Mall Gazette.

St Mark. “Dr MACLEAR's introduction contains all that is known of St Mark's life; an account of the circumstances in which the Gospel was composed, with an estimate of the influence of St Peter's teaching upon St Mark; an excellent sketch of the special characteristics of this Gospel; an analysis, and a chapter on the text of the New Testament generally.”—Saturday Review.

St Luke. Of this second series we have a new volume by Archdeacon FARRAR on St Luke, completing the four Gospels.... It gives us in clear and beautiful language the best results of modern scholarship. We have a most attractive Introduction. Then follows a sort of composite Greek text, representing fairly and in very

beautiful type the consensus of modern textual critics. At the beginning of the exposition of each chapter of the Gospel are a few short critical notes giving the manuscript evidence for such various readings as seem to deserve mention. The expository notes are short, but clear and helpful. For young students and those who are not disposed to buy or to study the much more costly work of Godet, this seems to us to be the best book on the Greek Text of the Third Gospel.” — Methodist Recorder.

St John. “We take this opportunity of recommending to ministers on probation, the very excellent volume of the same series on this part of the New Testament. We hope that most or all of our young ministers will prefer to study the volume in the Cambridge Greek Testament for Schools.Methodist Recorder,

The Acts of the Apostles. “Professor LUMBY has performed his laborious task well,

and supplied us with a commentary the fulness and freshness of which Bible students will not be slow to appreciate. The volume is enriched with the usual copious indexes and four coloured maps.”—Glasgow Herald.

I. Corinthians. “Mr LIAS is no novice in New Testament exposition, and the present series of essays and notes is an able and helpful addition to the existing books.”Guardian.

The Epistles of St John. "In the very useful and well annotated series of the Cambridge Greek Testament the volume on the Epistles of St John must hold a high position.... The notes are brief, well informed and intelligent.”-Scotsman.
