Without question The Biblical Illustrator comprises the greatest amount of biblical exposition ever assembled. It contains sermons, outlines, quotations, anecdotes, similes, emblems, and illustrations. Originally published in 1887, The Biblical Illustrator is one of the most robust commentaries ever published, covering every chapter and verse of the Word of God by some of the best preachers and teachers of the 19th century.
These contributors include Charles Spurgeon, D. L. Moody, Alexander MacLaren, Matthew Henry, Adam Clark, John Wesley, Joseph Parker, J.C. Ryle, and hundreds of others.
The editor, Joseph S. Exell, is one of the most highly regarded biblical editors of the past 200 years. He intended for this work to be used everyday by preachers and teachers.
Beyond just analyzing and advising on biblical text, The Biblical Illustrator provides a wealth of illustrations, outlines, poems, anecdotes, sermons, doctrine, similes, expositions, Bible backgrounds, and practical applications that can be shared with anyone. The content is expository, scientific, geographical, historical, and gathered from the entire range of literature dealing with every verse, passage, and text in the Old and New Testaments.
In printed form, this set totals 34,752 pages of content. In WORDsearch, you can choose or search any Bible verse of topic and you’ll have one expert after another weigh in with the kind of wisdom that comes from deep-thinking minds.
The Biblical Illustrator is also an ideal companion to The Pulpit Commentary. The Pulpit Commentary is one of the best-selling commentary sets of all time for preachers and pastors, and, in case you don’t already own it, you’ll find it’s also on sale for $64.95.
