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’s Commentary on the Apocalypse of John

Henry Barclay Swete [1835-1917], The Apocalypse of St. John. The Greek Text with Introduction and Notes, 3rd edn.

H.B. Swete’s Commentary on the Apocalypse of John receives the following comment from Don Carson in his New Testament Commentary Survey:

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

Cambridge Greek Testament – St Matthew by Arthur Carr

This is a commentary on the Greek text of the Gospel of Matthew in the Cambridge Greek Testament for Schools series. A number of people have contacted me to say how helpful this series is proving to students learning Greek, so I am trying to digitise all those in the public domain. You can access links to all the available volumes here.

My thanks to Book Aid more making this public domain title available for digitisation.
