The Crossway Classic Commentaries take the best works by the greatest Bible teachers and theologians in the last five hundred years and carefully adapts them for maximum understanding and usefulness for today's believers.
Learn from the Best
First, the editors found the best work by the best spiritual leader for each Bible book. For example, Charles Spurgeon covers Psalms, Charles Hodge covers Romans, and John Calvin covers Genesis. Some of the other authors include J.C. Ryle, Martin Luther, J.B. Lightfoot, John Owens, Charles Bridges, and Matthew Henry.
Believing that the "old is often better than the new," the editors of this series chose content that accurately handles the biblical text, while promoting godliness with spiritual vision and authority.
