Charles Spurgeon says of this commentary: "Of this I have a very high opinion.... It is to some extent a compilation and condensation of other men's thoughts, but it is sufficiently original to claim a place in every minister's library; indeed it contains so great a variety of information that if a man had no other exposition he would find himself at no great loss if he possessed this and used it diligently."--Commenting & Commentaries, p.41. Also (p.69) "A really standard work. We consult it continually, and with growing interest. Mr. Fausset's portion strikes us a being of the highest order." Robert Jamieson (1802-1880) Presbyterian, Church of Scotland minister of St. Paul's Glasgow. Andrew Robert Fausset (1821-1910) Anglican scholar and rector of St. Cuthbert's, York, England; evangelical and premillennialist. David Brown (1803-1897) Free Church of Scotland minister and Principal of the Free Church College, Aberdeen. He wrote the classic evangelical polemic against premillenialism, his own position being post-millennial. He was one of the founders of the Evangelical Alliance and served on the Committee for the Revised Version New Testament. (17900)
