This classic work has long been regarded as one of the "Crown Jewels" of puritan exposition. Though Caryl was a man of great learning, his style is simple and sweet with a feel for language and simile which lodge his comments indelibly in the mind and heart of the reader. Cotton Mather grouped these tomes in with those of Owen on Hebrew, Burroughs on Hosea, and Greenhill on Ezekiel as essential to any well-stocked library. This is a beautiful facsimile of the 1644 through 1666 editions. Three sets were used to obtain the best possible rendering of the original. We are confident that those interested in great puritan literature will gladly endure a bit of digging to mine the rich treasures. Finally the riches that have long lain hidden on the dusty shelves of university archives and in the quiet studies of only the most persistent and well-financed collectors are available to all.
