Notes, critical, illustrative, and practical, on the Book of
Job; with a new translation, and an introductory dissertation. By Albert Barnes, author of Notes on the Gospels, Isaiah, &c. With 30 illustrations and maps. 2 vols. 12mo.
From the N. Y. Observer.
The more we read them, the more we value them, for the clearness of their illustration, the wonderful research and industry with which they are elaborated, and the interest with which they are invested by the antiquity, sublimity, and peculiarity of the book which they explore.
From the N. Y. Commercial Advertiser. The work is deserving of a place in the Library of every Biblical and Theological student.
Extract from the N. Y. Evangelist. We shall be much mistaken if it does not rank, in the judgment of scholars both in this country and Europe, not only as the most successful of the labors of Mr. Barnes in this line, but as one of the happiest efforts of sound Biblical Criticism, of acute and learned exposition, that has lately appeared, it is a most able, useful, and creditable work.
In the London Patriot, received by the last arrival, we find the following notice of Mr. Barnes's last work:
“Mr. Barnes has, in the 'Notes' before us, furnished an ample apparatus to the Biblical Student, in reference to this sublime portion of the Hebrew Scriptures. His Introduction is learned and dispassionate; his translation is not liable to the charge of being fanciful; and his Notes are brief, clear, pointed, and illustrative. The work has the recommendation of containing a tolerably full bibliographical account of the principal writers upon the Book of Job."
