"To Reformed Baptist families I recommend Gill first and foremost, before Calvin and before Henry. The reason is simple, the commentary is comprehensive virtually covering every verse in the Bible and the Doctrines of Graces are accurately riddled throughout for the benefit of you and your children. If you have been wanting a comprehensive commentary on Scripture, but have been baffled, don't fully know what is good and what is bad you will not go wrong with Gill. To those who are avid readers and collectors of good books (like myself) if you don't own Gill or fallaciously consider him to be below your level, a waste of money or surpassed by modern commentaries, how wrong you are. Originally, I made the mistake of taking Gill for granted, but I tell you (a man of many books) there is so much theology in the commentaries of Gill, one would do well to get half of it in a life time- deep theological veins run there. Take another look, consult him on a verse, and tell me you found nothing there. Perhaps my early neglect of Gill was due to the fact that I didn't really know how to look and that is why I could get nothing or see nothing in Gill, or maybe I didn't look because I didn't take Gill serious, but whatever the reason it matters not. So much has changed, now he is one of my favorite commentators and his set my most valued comprehensive set on the Bible. To be without him is to remain ignorant. Recommended chief among commentaries!" B. K. Campbell

In the history of the Christian church, there has only been one comprehensive, verse-by-verse commentary of the entire Bible. Thank God that the author of this commentary was a model of biblical orthodoxy and sound scholarship, Dr. John Gill (1697-1771). Of Dr. Gill, the prince of preachers, Charles Spurgeon, wrote: 'In some respects, he has no superior. For good, sound, massive, sober sense in commenting, who can excel Gill?'

The Philadelphia Baptist Association, in its official minutes of October 1807 recommended, "that each member church of the Association subscribe for a copy of Dr. Gill's incomparable Exposition of the Old and New Testaments for the use of their ministers, and urge all sister associations to aid in the accomplishment of this desirable object." Minutes of the Philadelphia Baptist Association 1707-1807. (Philadelphia: American Baptist Publication Society, 1851) page 439.

The Baptist historian David Benedict noted that the Charleston Baptist Association "recommended to the churches and the public to encourage, by subscription, the undertaking . . . To republish Dr. Gill's Exposition and each church was advised to provide a copy for the use of its minister." A General History of the Baptist Denomination.

A Complete Body of DOCTRINAL & PRACTICAL Divinity deduced from the Sacred Scriptures
John Gill

"Having completed an Exposition of the whole Bible; I considered with myself what would be best next to engage in for the further instruction of the people under my care; and my thoughts led me to enter upon a Scheme of Doctrinal and Practical Divinity. Doctrine has an influence upon practise, especially evangelical doctrine, spiritually understood, affectionately embraced, and powerfully and feelingly experienced. Where there is not the doctrine of faith, the obedience of faith cannot be expected. " - from the Author's Preface

This majestic work was the last great writing of Dr. John Gill. Published in 1769 just two years prior to his death, it is arguably the most complete body of divinity ever written. Packed with biblical wisdom and unpolluted by worldly philosophy, this complete systematic theology represents some of the most vigorous, robust defenses of truth and clear statements of doctrine ever recorded in print.



Gill's 'Body of Divinity' is a work without which no theological library is complete. His grand old doctrines of grace, sweep all opposition before them. -Dr. William Cathcart

THE CAUSE OF GOD AND TRUTH
In Four Parts
John Gill

PREFACE

It should be known by the reader, that the following work was undertaken and begun about the year 1733 or 1734, at which time Dr. Whitby's Discourse on the Five Points was reprinted, judged to be a masterpiece on the subject, in the English tongue, and accounted an unanswerable one; and it was almost in the mouth of every one, as an objection to the Calvinists, Why do not ye answer Dr. Whitby? Induced hereby, I determined to give it another reading, and found myself inclined to answer it, and thought this was a very proper and seasonable time to engage in such a work.

In the year 1735, the First Part of this work was published, in which are considered the several passages of Scripture made us of by Dr. Whitby and others in favour of the Universal Scheme, and against the Calvinistic Scheme, in which their arguments and objections are answered, and the several passages set in a just and proper light. These, and what are contained in the following Part in favour of the Particular Scheme, are extracted from Sermons delivered in a Wednesday evening's lecture.

The Second Part was published in the year 1736, in which the several passages of Scripture in favour of special and distinguishing grace, and the arguments from them, are vindicated from the exceptions of the Arminians, and particularly from Dr. Whitby, and a reply made to answers and objections to them.

The Third Part was published in 1737, and is a confutation of the arguments from reason used by the Arminians, and particularly by Dr. Whitby, against the above doctrines; and a vindication of such as proceed on rational accounts in favour of them, in which it appears that they are no more disagreeable to right reason than to divine revelation; to the latter of which the greatest deference should be paid, though the Rationalists of our age too much neglect it, and have almost quitted it; but to the law and to the testimony, if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is not light in them.

In this part of the work is considered the agreement of the sentiments of Mr. Hobbes and the Stoic philosophers with those of the Calvinists, in which the difference between them is observed, and the calumny removed; to which is added, a Defence of the Objections to the Universal Scheme, taken from the prescience and the providence of God, and the case of the Heathens.

The Fourth Part was published in 1738, in which the sense of the ancient writers of the Christian Church, before the times of Austin, is given; the importance and consequence of which is shown, and that the Arminians have very little reason to triumph on that account.

This work was published at a time when the nation was greatly alarmed with the growth of Popery, and several learned gentlemen were employed in preaching against some particular points of it; but the author of this work was of opinion, that the increase of Popery was greatly owing to the Pelagianism, Arminianism, and other supposed rational schemes men run into, contrary to divine revelation. This was the sense of our fathers in the last century, and therefore joined these and Popery together in their religious grievances they were desirous of having redressed; and indeed, instead of lopping off the branches of Popery, the axe should be laid to the root of the tree, Arminianism and Pelagianism, the very life and soul of Popery.

This new edition, with some alterations and improvements, is now published by request.

--John Gill, D.D.

When, in the tumultuous days of the beginning of the Downgrade Controversy, Charles Spurgeon faced the possibility of the loss of friends and finances, he recalled in a letter to his church a moment of poignancy in the ministry of John Gill.

"My eminent predecessor, Dr. Gill, was told, by a certain member of his congregation who ought to have known better, that if he published his book, The Cause of God and Truth , he would lose some of his best friends, and that his income would fall off. The doctor said, 'I can afford to be poor, but I cannot afford to injure my conscience;' and he has left his mantle as well as his chair in our vestry." [C. H. Spurgeon, Autobiography , 2 vols. (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1973) 2:477].

This Spurgeonic remark carries within it the legacy of John Gill to evangelical Christianity, in general, and Baptists, in particular. It is especially appropriate that the remark was made concerning the book now being reprinted by the Baptist Standard Bearer. Alternately applauded and derided, celebrated and lamented, appreciated and opprobriated, Gill remains a significant testimony to the faithfulness of God in giving spiritual gifts for His peoples' benefit.

--From the Introduction by Tom J. Nettles

The Cause of God and Truth, in Four Parts. Being an Examination of the principal passages of Scripture made use of by the Arminians, with the judgment of the ancient Christian Church concerning them. With a Vindication of Part IV. (Paperback)
