Machen, J. Gresham
The author’s aim was to explain the text accurately, to clarify the geographical and historical references in Judges and to draw forth from the narrative and the inspired Word the spiritual lessons designed by the Divine Author. He believed that ‘the histories in Holy Scripture are wonderfully framed by their Divine Author to set forth spiritual and everlasting truths for all ages, and especially to typify Him in whom all history, type, and prophecy find their centre – Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today, and for ever‘ (Heb. 13:8)
Andrew Robert Fausset (1821-1910) was born in County Fermanagh and graduated from Trinity College, Dublin (BA, 1843). He was curate of Bishop Middleham, County Durham, from 1848 till 1859 and rector of St Cuthbert’s, York, from 1859 until his death.
