Five Rules for Choosing a Commentary – The Road To Emmaus

If you would like free commentaries on the whole Bible and haven’t gotten a hold of them, I would recommend Matthew Henry, John Gill and John Calvin. One way of doing this is to download e-Sword and install Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible and John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible from the Commentaries download page. I can’t remember how I got Calvin’s commentary into e-Sword but it can be found online here.

    Thanks for this. I just got e-sword, all the choices are kinda overwhelming.

  3. 3 Scripture Zealot

    You’re welcome. If you just got e-Sword, I would start with Matthew Henry. Spurgeon used to sit down with the Bible, a notepad and Henry’s commentary sometimes. I would put Calvin’s up there too if you’re at all Reformed or just very conservative. I also like Gill, Clarke and some others but start out with the first two is what I’d do. e-Sword is a great thing.
