Compiled by 40 Bible Scholars and edited by Dummelow, this commentary has received favorable reviews from Christians of many denominations. At one time, this was one of the most popular commentaries of the 20th century. Although not as conservative as the others, it is still quite helpful with detailed introductions and concise comments. All maps and images from the printed edition are included.

This commentary provides in a single large but convenient book the essential scholarly information on the Bible necessary to every minister and Bible student.

Dummelow's Commentary is distinguished by two remarkable combinations of merits. First, it combines to an extraordinary degree completeness and conciseness. As Bishop Anderson of the Diocese of Chicago has said, it contains "more information attractively presented than can be found in the same amount of space in the whole realm of Bible Literature." Yet it is not too diffuse, nor is the essential information obscured by unnecessary or rambling discourse.

Second, it combines in a remarkable way the highest religious reverence with exact scientific rigor. Preachers and theologians of many denominations and various shades of faith have paid tribute to its "conservative liberalism".
