Rev. ALFRED PLUMMER, M.A.,
A CRITICAL AND EXEGETICAL
ST. LUKE'S GOSPEL (IN “THE INTERNATIONAL CRITICAL COMMENTARY”).
Third Edition, in post 8vo, price 125.
“We feel heartily that the book will bring credit to English scholarship, and that in its carefulness, its sobriety of tone, its thoughtfulness, its reverence, it will contribute to a stronger faith in the essential trustworthiness of the Gospel record.”
GUARDIAN. “A notable production, and will prove invaluable to the clergyman.”
ATHENÆUM. “This seems to be the edition of St. Luke we have waited for so long. It will take its place without disparagement beside Dr. Driver's ‘Deuteronomy,' and Dr. Sanday's 'Romans.' These works have made the name of the 'Critical Commentary' a household word, not in our country only, even on the Continent also. Where they have gone Dr. Plummer will follow, and we dare predict as favourable
a reception.” EXPOSITORY TIMES.

Two things need to be stated respecting these four lectures : (1) they were not written with a view to publication; (2) they were not written with the expectation of supplying anything that was very original.
(1) The lectures were written to excite the interest, or refresh the memories, of those who asked for them and came to listen to them ; in the hope that some might thereby be induced to begin, or return to, independent study of the momentous period in which the lectures attempt to point out some leading features. They were not produced with the anticipation of making a permanent addition to the abundant literature on the subject: and when the project of publishing them was first urged upon the lecturer by some of those who heard him, he put aside the proposal on the ground that the lectures were probably of too ephemeral a character to merit preservation after they had served their immediate purpose.
But when the request for publication became frequent, and when he was assured by those whose judgment weighed
