The Prophet of Glory; or, Zechariah's Vision of the Coming and Kingdom of Christ

Author: J. Denham Smith
Publisher: J. E. Hawkins
Publish Date: 1886

Zechariah's prophecy has attracted many expositors of late. It is so full of points and striking passages that it will ever be a favorite resort of preachers. Mr. Denham Smith, whom to know is to esteem, here gives us sweet enlargements upon the words and visions of the prophet, which to our mind are shorter than we would have had them. The preacher scarcely gets into the subject before he has to quit it; what he gives us suffices only to make us long for more. The worst of it, is there is barely space for depth any more than dispraise, but to commend; a desire for more is nature's way of witnessing that what she has received is good. Our friend is known to be as clear as this is apparent upon every page which he has written.
