BOOK REVIEW: John Riddle Commentary Series

John Riddle Commentary Series


John Riddle from Cheshunt, England, is a gifted Bible expositor. He has spent the last 50 years or so expounding the Word of God to audiences all over the UK and further afield.

For several decades Mr Riddle conducted Friday evening verse by verse Bible studies in his home town of Cheshunt and covered vast areas of the Bible to great profit. Webtruth is delighted that the Scottish publisher, John Ritchie Ltd., is currently turning out two commentaries a year based on John Riddle’s expository notes from those Cheshunt studies.

As of January 2020, there are 14 volumes available:

Far from dry and over-technical on one hand, or light and anecdotal on the other, John Riddle’s excellent commentaries are theologically sound, eminently readable and deeply spiritual in tone. The author holds to verbal plenary inspiration, takes a dispensational view of Bible prophecy and is careful to retain a practical edge at all times. Mr Riddle’s material is also very suggestive and will provide much by way of ideas and outlines for preaching and teaching.
