Born into a family with an Episcopalian father and a Presbyterian mother, Adam Clarke converted to Methodism after being stirred by the sermon of a traveling preacher in his little village of Moybeg, Ireland. He soon dedicated his life to the study of languages and the Bible, and became one of the most well respected Methodist preachers and teachers, embracing Wesleyan-Arminian positions in his writings and sermons.

Still widely referenced today, the nearly six-thousand page commentary set is even more accessible with the power of Logos Bible Software.

In addition, the The Works of Adam Clarke (24 vols.) includes Clarke’s six-volume Bibliographical Dictionary with the supplementary two-volume Bibliographical Miscellany, and Memoirs of the Wesley Family, Clarke’s memories and research on his mentors, John and Charles Wesley, and their family history.
At the request of his friends and family, Adam Clarke also penned a memoir about his own life which makes up the first book in the three-volume An Account of the Religious and Literary Life of Adam Clarke. The subsequent volumes were written and edited by his son and daughter and contain revealing insights into this great man of faith through interviews, letters, journal entries, and more.
