Steve Dilday and Andrew Myers have produced the first of (Deus Volat) many, many volumes comprising a translation of the massive Synopsis Criticorum. You can download the entirety of the translation for free. Getting it in hardcover costs something, obviously. The Synopsis is by no means the same thing as Poole’s commentary (although Dilday and Myers have elected to include Poole’s commentary in the text). What Poole did was to combine all the best comments he could find from the Reformation era, and combine them all into one place. The result was a five-volume behemoth of selected comments on the entire Scripture. I hope that Dilday and Myers will live to complete the entire project. It will be of enormous benefit to Christendom. I plan on supporting the project through purchasing each and every volume (I hate reading off a computer screen unless it is absolutely necessary!). The second volume will come out in October (again, DV).
