An Exposition of the Epistle of St. Paul to the Colossians, Volume 1
C.H. Spurgeon, in his famous work, Commenting and Commentaries, placed Davenant on Colossians in the first rank of commentaries on this Pauline epistle and approvingly quoted the words of Charles Bridges about this volume: 'I know no exposition upon a detached portion of Scripture (with the single exception of Owen on the Hebrews) that will compare with it in all parts...in depth, accuracy, and discursiveness.' On the title page of an old Latin edition a satisfied reader made a note of his deep appreciation for Davenant's masterpiece: 'Don't abuse this good old book: for it is an extraordinary piece, and the best Exposition on St. Paul's Epistle to the Colossians that ever was published...and I am afraid there will never be a better so long as the world endures.'

I'm teaching through Colossians in a small group study that I team teach. The reason I bought this commentary was the shining review from Spurgeon, quoting Charles Bridges, who said that of all commentaries, this is second only to Owen on Hebrews. Wow. Read full review
