New Commentaries from Alexander MacLaren

Alexander MacLaren has been a revered preacher, both in his time and ours. That is why we are excited to bring you three of his many works on Scripture: Expositions of Holy Scripture, The Life of David Reflected in the Psalms, and his contributions to The Expositor's Bible.

Expositions of Holy Scripture
The first and largest of these works is a collection of MacLaren's sequential teaching through the books of Scripture. George Eayrs, who created a detailed index for the physical volume set of this work, marveled at the unique nature of MacLaren's writings: "A notable feature of Dr. MacLaren's expository art was the use of supplementary, complementary, or contrasting passages of Scripture as sidelights or reflections upon that which he was expounding."

The Life of David Reflected in the Psalms
This work focuses on the evolution of David's psalms throughout his different stages of life. MacLaren breaks his work into four stages of David's life: (1) his early days, (2) his exile during Saul's reign, (3) his reign as king, and (4) his sin and the consequences born from that. With this work, you will find yourself diving deep into the character and life of King David.

Contributions to The Expositor's Bible
The Expositor's Bible is a work compiled and edited by Sir William Robertson Nicholl. His goal was to display a unification among full-time preachers on the essentials of the Christian faith. MacLaren, a dear friend of Nicholl, contributed three volumes on Psalms and one on Colossians and Philemon. These are available along with MacLaren's other works on his author page.

So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory? (1 Corinthians 15:54-55)
