LANGE’S COMMENTARY ON THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. Joshua-Ruth and I Samuel, two volumes. Price per volume $3.95.
Again we heartily recommend to ministers, teachers, and all who are interested in the study of the Holy Scriptures, this priceless set of commentaries. They do contain, of course, a good deal of scholarly material, but not to such an extent as to make the work inaccessible to the general public.
The commentary on the book of Joshua was originally prepared by the Rev. F. R. Fay, pastor in Crefield, Prussia; that on Judges and Ruth by professor Paulus Cassel of Berlin, a converted Rabbi; while the commentaries on the two books of Samuel was written in German by the Rev. Dr. Erdmann.
Interesting and valuable often are the notes by the translators. Cf. for instance the rather elaborate discussion of Saul’s visit to the witch of Endor.
