The two men. who belonged to what Dr John MacLeod termed 'the Second Reformation galaxy' in Scotland, collaborated with others in the production of 'as valuable a legacy of practical exegesis as has come down from the Puritan age.' The initial impetus, under God, came from Dickson (1583-1662) who exercised a highly successful ministry at Irvine in Ayrshire. So popular was his expository preaching that his hearers wrote down verbatim all that was possible and later circulated the transcriptions among their friends and acquaintances. In the outcome, Dickson, sensing the need for the printing of plain and 'handy expositions ot Scripture, initiated a project designed 'to bring to the common man the ripe fruit of academic work'. In other words Dickson s expositions acted as a catalyst. His first effort, A Short Explanation of 'the Epistle of Paul to the Hebrews (1635), demonstrated the style of his preaching and set the pattern for the series His method was to give a summary of each part of the Epistle in turn, followed by a doctrinal and practical exposition of its teachings. The Hebrews volume was issued with the hope that 'any success attending this "piece of hard meat" would encourage others to attempt less difficult Scripture.' Among the tirst to be encouraged was James Fergusson (1621-1667) a minister at Kilwinning, not far from Irvine. After 'muchintreaty' he prepared A rief Exposition of Philippians and Colossians, pub lished 'n 1656. Expositions of Galatians and Ephesians followed in 1659; a similar work on the two Thessalonian Epistles was published posthumously (1674). Together w'ith Dickson on Hebrews the six were republished in Ward's Library of Standard Divinity in 1850. The present volume is a orint of thatedition." (from the dj).
