Tab Name:

This 20 volume commentary (or collection?) contains unique, expository articles on "The Great" texts of of Bible. Filled with analogies, history, sermons, anecdotes, interpretations, and perspectives, this resource focuses on epic Bible texts that leap from your Bible's pages. While not a devotional work, devotional undertones do run throughout this resource.

One modern pastor reflects, "I’ll sometimes be stuck on some passage and wander over to this Hastings guy to see if it was a text that he thought was “great”. If it was, I read him, and I never leave his feet disappointed."

As with his companion work, Greater Men and Women of the Bible, Hasting provides insight and personal observations on the "Great Texts" of the Bible. Where as the Greater Men and Women of the Bible is organized by person, The Great Texts of the Bible is organized by scripture.

Because Hastings studied the classics as an undergraduate, each section includes viewpoints from other authors, often with poems and literature quotes and references. And as with the companion work, this resource is organized not just by topic but by subtopic and various levels of outlining.

You will find a lifetime of encouragement and clarity in The Great Texts of the Bible.

James Hastings (1852-1922) was a Presbyterian clergyman and author. Hastings was born in Scotland, studied the classics at the University of Aberdeen, attended the Free Church Divinity College in Aberdeen, and was ordained a Free Church minister in 1884. Hastings was a prolific author. Hastings also compiled a number of dictionaries, such as the Hastings, James - Dictionary of the Bible (1909).

theWord Edition
The 20 volumes translates into about 25 megabytes of uncompressed text.

The download listing includes two theWord versions: 1) Commentary (.cmt) and 2) Book (.gbk). The content is identical. The only difference is the presentation (one is a commentary and the other is a Book module).

I removed the problematic zip file. Now, you're presented with the cmt (commentary) and gbk (book) modules on the file download screen. Download either or both, as you prefer.
