Adam Clarke's Commentary is one of the best expository Bible Commentaries ever written, with complete exposition on both the Old and New Testaments. Clarke was a great scholar who was fluent in over 20 languages. He read widely on the customs of the ancient world, so he explains cultural references that would escape most of us.

This is better than hot stuff just off the press. Written over 200 years ago, Adam Clarke gives us the benefit of his thoughtful insights into the Bible and makes them useful to us today. Clarke, an original Methodist preacher who lived in Ireland, shares his extensive knowledge of languages of the ANE (Ancient Near East) as well as profound understanding of the author's original intent. Not preachy; just useful!

More importantly, Adam Clarke's total respect for God's Word and his complete devotion to his Lord are apparent throughout his works. Clarke examines the Bible phrase by phrase and sometimes word by word with an unusual carefulness both for the correct understanding of the text and for the souls of his readers. Although this is an expositional commentary rather than a devotional one, Clarke frequently pauses to apply the Scriptures to your life.

Adam Clarke's commentary is rich with sound Biblical exegesis and meaningful insights. Clarke was a good friend of John Wesley, and his theological positions are primarily Arminian, thus his Commentary will be a tremendous blessing and help to any sincere student of the Bible. Clarke, as an early Methodist, was deeply influenced by the teachings of John Wesley who held to Protestant teaching (i.e. sola scriptura, and justification by faith) while not neglecting the invaluable richness found in the Catholic and Orthodox traditions (i.e. ethics of holiness, sanctification). In this, one finds in John Wesley a beautiful synthesis of the best of church thought throughout the ages.

Not only does Clarke explain in detail the meaning of scripture passages in light of scholarly analysis and historical background, he compares the beliefs of the millions of Arminians around the world with those of the Calvinist. As a Wesleyan, Clarke gives a thorough and systematic explanation of Scripture which serves as a check to the imbalances of Calvinism and Reformed theology. Within this commentary are many great rebuttals to both John Calvin's and Martin Luther's ideology. In doing this we find Adam Clarke's Commentary biblically accurate and refreshing. We highly recommend this author and work to the church.

Adam Clarke (1760 or 1762–1832) was a British Methodist theologian and Biblical scholar. He is chiefly remembered for writing a commentary on the Bible which took him forty years to complete and which was a primary Methodist theological resource for two centuries.

As a theologian, Clarke reinforced the teachings of Methodist founder John Wesley. He taught that the Bible provides a complete interpretation of God's nature and will. He considered Scripture itself a miracle of God's grace that "takes away the veil of darkness and ignorance."1 With such an understanding, Clarke was first and foremost a Biblical theologian, often uneasy with purely systematic approaches to theology.

Clarke followed Wesley in opposing a Calvinistic scheme of salvation, preferring instead the Wesleyan-Arminian positions regarding predestination, prevenient grace, the offer of justification from God to all persons, entire sanctification, and assurance of salvation.

Perhaps his most controversial position regarded the eternal Sonship of Jesus. Clarke did not believe it Biblically faithful to affirm this doctrine, maintaining that prior to the Incarnation, Jesus was "unoriginated." Otherwise, according to Clarke, he would be subordinate to God and therefore not fully divine. This was important to Clarke because he felt that Jesus' divinity was crucial to understanding the atonement.

Clarke's view was opposed by many Methodists, notably Richard Watson. Watson and his allies argued that Clarke's position jeopardized the integrity of the doctrine of the trinity. Clarke's view was rejected by Methodism in favor of the traditional, orthodox perspective.
