Devotional Commentary

The Five Books of Moses

The Five Books of Moses by F. B. Meyer is classified as a devotional commentary. Meyer goes chapter by chapter through the first five books of the Bible. Each chapter gets roughly one to one and a half pages in the book.

The comments are not thorough and exhaustive, but they are worthwhile. Meyer touches on the major points in the chapters. In keeping with his usual style, he provides many practical comments.

Reading this book together with the Bible is a good way to use it. If you are reading through the Pentateuch, you could read Meyer’s comments on the chapter you just read and work through the whole that way. I have found this book helpful in this manner.
