About-

Johann Albrecht Bengel (1687-1752), German Lutheran theologian and biblical scholar, began his studies at Tuebingen. He was appointed professor in charge of a theological training school at Denkendorf in 1713 and remained there for twenty-eight years. During this time he produced his most important works: a Greek text of the New Testament with an 'Apparatus criticus' (1734) and his 'Gnomon Novi Testamenti' (1742). Other works by Bengel include 'Erkrte Offenbarung Johannis' (1740; Eng. transl. by John Robertson, London, 1757), 'Ordo temporum' (1741), and 'Cyclus sive de anno magno consideratio' (1745).

Endorsements & Reviews-

"He was inclined to compare his condition rather with that of persons in hmbler station, than with that of persons above him; and thus found contentment no difficult virtue. He committed his ways to the Lord; and, with singleness of heart, he pressed toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus, to whose disposal he resigned every care about a rough course of life or a smooth one."
--from chapter 3
