Commentary on the Whole Bible
Methodist Missionary Thomas Coke wrote A Commentary on the Holy Bible in six complete volumes between 1801 and 1803. Coke is one of the founders of the Methodist Church in the United States.
Though remembered primarily as the "Father of Methodist Missions," he was a key figure in the development of Methodism on both sides of the Atlantic in the years before and after Wesley's death. An Oxford trained lawyer turned priest, he openly allied himself with the Methodists in England. As Wesley's right hand man he became President of the Methodist Church in Ireland in 1782, and two years later was appointed "Bishop" for America. As Asbury's uneasily yoked colleague, Coke visited America nine times, the last time in 1803.
Always deeply interested in missionary work at home and abroad, he traveled widely to establish Methodism in the West Indies. Hoping to open Methodist missions in the East Indies, in 1814 he set sail for Ceylon, but died on the way.
In addition to being a popular preacher, he was an author of some considerable importance. His writings included a multi-volume commentary on the Bible and a history of the West Indies.
