The commentary Jonathan Edwards used most was Philip Doddridge's "The Family Expositor". Edwards' Blank Bible is littered with all kinds of quotes from Doddridge's Family Expositor. The Expositor is an amazing work. It is a paraphrase of the NT with study notes. Essentually it's the puritan version of a study Bible. It was released yesterday for community pricing. It doesn't seem to be getting much traction on community pricing yet. Check it out here: If you want to check out the document you can find it on Googlebooks or Achive. Also, attached is a Docx file I've been working on that has Romans 1-7 in it (the blue text is Bible, also the footnotes are really good).

Thanks everyone!

Dear Liam

Thank you for the wonderful work you did on the Romans section of Dodridge's "Family Expositor." I'm becoming quite interested in Dodridge and would like to read everything he wrote in preparation for a possible M.Th. on his theology. 

Did you ever work any more on his Family Expositor? I'm quite saddened to see not enough people are interested in work for Logos to produce an electronic version! Though, I must say, I like the feeling of the color photocopied version.

Hey Ruan, 

Im glad you're liking it! Unfortunately I've just been too busy to buckle down and re-typeset Doddridge for Logos. I did however publish his Expositor in a two volume edition here:

I also was able to convert his abridged expositor into a Word doc for a Logos PB. But it only contains a bare bones version of his exposition. Although it does contain all of his devotions for each section of the New Testament! I'll try and post it here when I get the chance. It's not tagged or formatted or anything though, so you'll just have to scroll down to the passage you're looking for.

Ok, here's his Family Expositor Abridged Version volumes 1 and 2! Unfortunately the editor was pretty far reaching in his abridgment. The devotions are still intact though! It has no Bible milestones or anything in it. If anyone is able to put them into the doc, I'd be grateful if you reposted it here with them!
