John Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible provides verse by verse comments for the entire Bible. The eminent Baptist pastor and learned Rabbinical scholar, John Gill, originally published his work in nine volumes. This PocketBible version includes the unabridged comments along with chapter and book summaries.
Gill's work is praised by Charles H. Spurgeon who said, "...For good, sound, massive, sober sense in commenting, who can excel Gill?” Gill is known for insights into the historical and cultural aspects of the Bible as well as a commitment to letting Scripture interpret Scripture.
"(Gill) likewise published a voluminous “COMMENTARY ON THE HOLY SCRIPTURES” in nine volumes folio, remarkable for the copiousness of its glossary, the brilliance of its argument, his apprehension of prophecy, and the richness of his Hebrew scholarship." --C. H. Spurgeon
“...(Gill's) labors were indefatigable, his life exemplary, and his death comfortable if any one can be supposed to have trod the whole circle of human learning, it was this great and eminent person. His attainments, both in abstruse and polite literature, were equally extensive and profound, and so far as the distinguishing doctrines of grace are concerned, he never besieged an error which he did not force from its stronghold, nor ever encountered an adversary whom he did not baffle and subdue.” --Rev. Augustus Montague Toplady

About the Author(s)
John Gill (1697-1771, D.D. University of Aberdeen) - Eminent Baptist pastor and learned Rabbinical scholar. He married Elizabeth Megus in 1718. Converted at age twelve, Gill became pastor in Horsleydown, near London, in 1719, ministering there for 52 years. The church later moved to become Carter Lane Baptist Church in 1757 (and would eventually become the Metropolitan Tabernacle pastored by Charles Spurgeon). He was a hyper-Calvinist scholar and theologian. His most important work was his Exposition of the Old and New Testament (9 vols., pub. 1746–66). His writings range from The Doctrine of the Trinity (1731) to A Body of Practical Divinity (1770). (From Reese Encyclopedia of Christian Biographies)
John Gill attended Kettering Grammar school in Kettering, England until age 11. There he studied and became proficient with English grammar, read the Latin classics and an understanding of the Greek language. After he left grammar school, he continued his language studies learning Hebrew on his own. He particularly loved reading the Old Testament in the original language. He was baptized at age 19 and started his preaching/ministerial career thereafter. In 1748 he received the D.D. from the University of Aberdeen. His sermons and biblical studies were published by popular demand and the culmination of his work was his exposition of the entire Bible. His label as a hyper-Calvinism is still a subject of debate but most would concede his thinking was at least a precursor to that theology.
