Samuel Clark's Scripture Promises
Samuel Clark (Clarke) (1684-1750), a Protestant Dissenter, came from a family of notable Samuel Clarkes, including Samuel Clarke (1599-1683), who helped author the London Provincial Assembly's Jus Divinum Ministerii Evangelici; Samuel Clarke (1626-1701), who wrote notable annotations on the whole Bible and edited Matthew Poole's English Annotations; as well as at least two other Samuel Clarkes. But this Samuel distinguished himself with a collection of God's promises from the Bible organized thematically, which has endured over the centuries. I commend Samuel Clark's Scripture Promises to those seeking a helpful guide to what Scriptures teach of God's promises to believers.
