E.W. Hengstenberg [1802-1869] was a German neo-Lutheran theologian remembered for his staunch defence of Christian orthodoxy. His books, most of which were translated into English during his lifetime, proved very influential in both England and America and are still valued today.

Swete is normally stodgy and often dull, but although he never shakes of his pedestrianism, in this commentary there is some really useful and thorough material that helps the reader to see the depth of the book
