John Gill (1697-1771) "By 1740 Gill was fast becoming the leading theological spokesman for the Particular Baptists in both Great Britain and America. Critical in establishing his reputation were his Exposition of the Book of Solomon's Song (1728); A Treatise on the Doctrine of the Trinity (1731), that was designed to check the spread of Sabellianism, a heresy among the Baptists that asserted that the Trinity was one person, not three; and The Cause of God and Truth (4 vols., 1735–8), which was a major defence of the five points of Calvinism. Cementing that reputation was his magnum opus, the Exposition of the Old and New Testaments, which employed his extensive rabbinical learning. The New Testament portion appeared in three volumes in 1746–8; the Old Testament, in 6 folio volumes, was completed in 1766. This work and his Body of Doctrinal and Practical Divinity (1769–70) became a standard part of the library of most Baptist ministers of the day." (DNB). A scarce book though not the first edition, which came out in 1748. British Library, Oxford, Yale. ESTC T92016 (Item Id: 105589)
