The Pauline Commentaries
Chapter forty-seven explores three of the biblical commentaries Hodge wrote during the 1850s: Ephesians, First Corinthians, and Second Corinthians. Partly in response to the massive popularity of Albert Barnes’s New Testament commentary series, Hodge approached Joseph Addison Alexander with the idea of producing their own New Testament commentary set that would provide Americans with a conservative Calvinist point of view. Together, they completed six commentaries for the set before Addison prematurely died in 1860. Hodge did not carry their work on after his death. He also opposed a move by Robert Breckinridge in 1858 to have the General Assembly commission an official commentary to be used by Old School Presbyterians.
