"Joseph Benson (1748-1821) one of the most eminent of the early Methodist ministers in England. At sixteen he was converted to Methodism and in 1766 Mr. Wesley appointed him classical master at Kingswood School. In 1769 he was made head-master of Lady Huntingdon's Theological College at Trevecca, but left in 1771 because of its becoming a thoroughly Calvinistic school. He was then, and always afterward, a decided Arminian. He was admitted into the Methodist Conference in 1771 and soon became one of the ablest preachers in that body, with crowds attending his preaching wherever he went. Spurgeon comments on Benson's commentary: ""Adopted by the Wesleyan Conference as a standard work, and characterized by that body as marked by `solid learning, soundness of theological opinion, and an edifying attention to experimental and practical religion.' Necessary to Methodist Students.""--Commenting & Commentaries. We are pleased to offer this copy, bound in full tree calf, of Benson's Commentary.
