Product Information

Although Daille lived and served during the period of the English Puritans, his form of exposition differed greatly. He, like those great expositors, takes the text, highlights a piece of a verse, relates it to the former verses, and the following verses. But instead of interrupting the flow of his comments by divisions and sub-divisions, he may run the entire verse in one long paragraph, taking up the pieces as he goes, and giving their sense. Oftentimes, he gives an alternate translation, and he is very accurate in making these a literal translation of the Greek. He makes his applications also flow in the same way.

He gives excellent introductions to a passage, such as the inspirational passage of Philippians 2:5-8:

''If there is any mystery in the Christian religion which is great and high above the thoughts of men and angels, it is without doubt the incarnation of the Son of God, and His profitable humiliation. And if there is in all the Holy Scriptures any place in which this important truth is clearly and magnificently represented, it is in the text we now read . . . . Its terms are so sublime, so majestic, that it is impossible for any thing to be more heavenly. The meaning is so noble, so well-established, that nothing more powerful could be imagined; the apostle battering down in these few words all that Hell has ever invented against the sacred and inviolable foundation of our faith.''

There are many memorable statements scattered throughout this simple, but profound, exposition. For instance: ''Adam, that is man, with all the fertility of his invention, supplies himself with nothing but leaves. God . . . has provided a garment capable of concealing our nakedness, and enabling us to appear in His presence without shame.''

In summing up Phil. 3:10, 11, Daille writes: ''Such is the gain which the apostle found in Christ. First, he obtained a perfect and assured salvation, a righteousness of God by faith of Jesus Christ. Secondly, A blessed and happy experience of the power of the resurrection of his Lord. Thirdly, The glorious fellowship of His sufferings, in order to attain at last to the resurrection and eternal life.''

By these samples, one can see that this author writes in a clear, easy-to-understand language, the kind that the mind absorbs quickly, and makes its impact without needing any further explanation.

Jean Daille (1594-1670) was a French Pastor and Expositor during the English Puritan period. His expositions are on Philippians, Colossians, Timothy, and Titus. They are noted for their sweetness, their pure and simple language. 288 pages
