Charles Bridges, one of the most outstanding evangelical writers in the Church of England in the last century, issued his Exposition of Psalm 119 in 1827 when he was 33 years of age. The popularity of the work may be judged by the fact that it passed through at least twenty-four editions before his death in 1869. It is pre-eminently a book the heart.

In its original Preface, Bridges tell us that his main design in writing it was to 'furnish a correct standard of Evangelical sincerity for the habitual scrutiny of his own hear', corresponding to 'the several graces of the Christian system', which the Psalm itself describes. Not surprisingly a magazine of a century ago told its readers that the Exposition’s appeals to the heart are such as to approve themselves to the experience of every devout believer in Christ.'

 

Author

Charles Bridges (1794-1869) was one of the leaders of the Evangelical party in the Church of England in the last century. He was vicar of Old Newton, Suffolk, from 1823 to 1849, and later of Weymouth and Hinton Martell in Dorset. The Christian Ministry is Bridges' best-known literary work, but his expositions of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Psalm 119 are also highly valued.
