The Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary of the Whole Bible 

Version 1.2

The Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary of the Whole Bible was originally published as a 23-volume set by Albert Garner (principal author) along with J. C. Howes, G.F. Crumley, and Eugene Garner in 1985. The Blessed Hope Foundation has released this digital edition into the public domain and has been converted to e-Sword format by the editor of the Baptist Training Center (Danny Jones) via e-Sword Tooltip Tool NT.

Interpretations are written in the language of the common man, designed especially for Bible teachers, Sunday School teachers, laymen and ministers who desire to know the meaning or find an explanation on any particular passage.
All interpretations are based on:
1. the root meaning of the words
2. the subject matter considered
3. the contextual setting of the subject matter and time element considered.

The authors of this commentary are conservative, independent, landmark, missionary Baptists.
