“We take this to be the most learned and elaborate work on the Parables in the English language. The principle of interpretation adopted by Mr. Trench is nearly identical with that of St. Augustine, his great favorite, who spiritualizes those parts of a parable which Chrysostom and others of the ancients, with the majority of the moderns, consider nothing but the drapery and ornament of the narrative. His views on this subject and on cognate points are lucidly brought out in an Introductory Essay. The Dissertations, or, as he calls them, the Notes of Mr. Trench, do not lay claim to originality—he has rather gone upon the eclectic basis; acknowledging his indebtedness in marginal notes. These notes are principally quotations from the Latin and Greek Fathers, being the original texts of his multitudinous references. He delights in patristic lore; and defers readily to the opinions of the fathers, though he does not scruple to show up their variations on almost every page—presenting thereby an interesting comment on the dogma of their unanimous consent and jure Divino authority. He scarcely ever deigns to notice the modern commentators, with the exception of the Germans, whom he as often quotes for the purpose of refuting their opinions as for invoking their authority. + + + + +

“His interpretations of the parables, in almost every instance, are identical with those which are generally adopted by our best divines, bating the minutia of his plans, which, by the way, he finds very inconvenient sometimes, as in the case of The seea growing secretly. We are thus particular in noticing this volume, because we consider it a valuable addition to Theological literature—a learned and evangelical work, which every student of divinity, and especially every clerical student, ought to place in his library. It is gotten up in beautiful style, elegantly bound in muslin."— Southern Christian Advocate.

“Notices of the work which we had seen in English journals, prepared us to find a volume presenting at once orthodox views, an edifying application of the subjects considered, and a chastened criticism. So far as we have found time to examine it, these anticipations have been met, and we believe the present addition to theological literature to be a valuable one. Mr. Trench makes free use of the fathers in his elucidations, and quotes many passages from them. He seems also to be quite at home among recent exegetical writers, and intermingles with many valuable extracts from some of them whose works are not easily met with, not a few original and acute notes of his own. Indeed, his reading seems to have been quite extensive and well directed.”—Churchman.

“We have the best lessons of wisdom and benevolence in the parables of our Heavenly Teacher, which, in the statement of moral principle and religious duty exhibit a degree of skill to which no merely human intellect was ever equal There is also in these lessons ‘a power and beauty of illustration, which no poet or orator ever approached. In the valuable work before us, the parables are collected, compared, and explained, by a writer who has evidently studied them with a fervent mind, and whose illustrative comments will render them highly instructive and profitable to his readers.”
