“It is unique in its kind as a collection and fair presentation of everything in Scripture that can possibly bear on the question. It sets before us the whole matter -Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Syriac, Chaldee.

“Regarded simply as a Biblical treatise, having no reference to a much disputed moral question, it would be pronounced by scholars a work of high philological value.”—Professor TAYLER LEWIS, Union College.

“The more I look into this noble work, the more do I admire its breadth, depth, and exhaustiveness. It is a truly grand contribution.”—Professor GUTHRIE, Glasgow.

“This work is exhaustive of the subject, and will have a permanent value. It is no inconsiderable service to have rescued the Bible from the false glosses of prejudice and ignorance."--The Northern Express, Newcastle-on-Tyne.

No less than 638 passages of Holy Scripture are explained in the goodly volume."— The Methodist Recorder.

“We commend all parties to read this book, and involving as it does the question of the frown or approbation of Holy Scripture on our social drinking usages, it cannot be too gravely read or too devoutly pondered.”—The Baptist Messenger, England.

“I have now kept it on my table for several months. I found it of great use in interpreting certain passages in the Lessons, and other portions of Holy Scripture, which I had occasion to read privately and before my congregation. On the points it more especially examines, it is more thorough and exhaustive than any com. mentary I have ever met with. I don't wonder that our learned friend, Dr Tayler Lewis, speaks of it so warmly, as a valuable addition to our sacred literature."W. Payne, D. D., Schenectady.

“The Book of Books on this question. I trust steps will be taken by some friend of truth and humanity in cach church in this Union, to supply his own pastor with a copy."—Hon. E. C. DELAVAN, Schenectady.
