B. H. Carroll Collection


Featuring An Interpretation of the English Bible

Originally published in 17 volumes, this set of commentaries on the entire Bible by the famous Baptist preacher Benajah Harvey Carroll (1843-1914) was edited and published by J.B. Carnfill between 1913-16. Carnfill, who was associated with Carroll for many years and who taught Bible for more than 30 years at the seminary level, testified that the Carroll was "one of the greatest Bible scholars and exegetes living in the world today." Carnfill wrote that in the General Introduction to the commentary on Genesis in 1913, the year before Carroll died. The Wycliffe Biographical Dictionary says Carroll "was a powerful preacher, keen debater, ready writer, widely-read historian." An Interpretation of the English Bible is long out of print and is rare. It is not a verse-by-verse commentary, but it is packed with helpful thoughts for preachers and teachers. It is an excellent set for a preacher to use in conjunction with his through-the-Bible reading one year.

"These works are designed especially for class use in the Seminary, Christian Colleges and Bible Schools, as well as the Sunday School. That they will make the greatest commentary on the English Bible ever published, is our sincere conviction." – Baptist and Reflector

"This work is an interpretation rather than a commentary in the popular acceptance of the latter term. In such interpretation, the author indulges in paraphrasing the biblical text, in inserting now and then a sermon on a vital subject, and in sharing with his readers bits of humor which he has picked up along the way. After each chapter a lengthy list of pertinent questions is appended. The reader finds Dr. Carroll's knowledge of the Bible positively amazing, and rejoices in his strict adherence to the objective with which he started: "We set out not to study human creeds, but the Bible, and we agreed to let the Bible interpret itself and mean what it wants to mean." – John L. Hill
