Edwin Hamilton Gifford’s Commentary on Romans

Colosseum, Rome

Edwin Hamilton Gifford’s Commentary on Romans was original published as part of the Speaker’s Commentary series in 1881, but reprinted (with considerably higher production values) five years later by John Murray. Recent reviewers have noted that this is one of the better older commentaries on Romans. My thanks to Book Aid for making a copy of this public domain work available for digitisation.

Handley Moule’s Devotional Commentary on 2 Timothy

Handley Carr Glyn Moule [1841-1920], The Second Epistle to Timothy. Short Devotional Studies on the Dying Letter of St Paul

In my selection of commentaries for digitisation so far I have concentrated on those that are exegetical, as their contents are likely to be less dated than devotional commentaries. Just for a change, I have decided to digitise and upload Handley Moule’s devotional commentary on 2 Timothy.
