Expositions of Holy Scripture
Expositions of Holy Scripture by Alexander MacLaren is a collection of over 1,500 expository sermons arranged as a Bible commentary. Expositions is also known as "Alexander MacLaren's Commentary" thanks to the original publication in commentary form. However, though organized by verse, Expositions is teaching material. MacLaren's sermons usually take the form of three-point expositions.
Tim Perrine a CCEL Staff Writer says,
“Called the ‘prince of expositors,’ Alexander MacLaren was a renowned preacher of the 19th and 20th century. Expositions of Holy Scripture brings together many of the sermons over his fifty years in ministry. Although it discusses many different books and passages of the Bible, Expositions of Holy Scripture isn’t a commentary in the fullest sense--for example, MacLaren doesn’t comment on every verse. Rather, these volumes are MacLaren’s powerful sermons, arranged by the text of the sermons. Broadly evangelical in nature, MacLaren’s sermons are not historical--rarely referring to the current events of his day--allowing them to retain their interest and power since he first gave them. Expositions of Holy Scriptures is thus highly practical and lively. It makes a wonderful companion to more textually oriented commentaries. To read Expositions of Holy Scripture is to be in the presence of one of the greatest preachers of the last few centuries.”
F. B. Meyer said of him,
As an expository preacher none of them equaled Maclaren of Manchester, and no other sermons were so widely read the world around.
