Revised edition

The revised 1962 edition was edited by Matthew Black (1908-1994), the General and New Testament Editor and Harold Henry Rowley (1890-1969), the Old Testament editor. This edition was completely rewritten but on the same plan as its predecessor, including 103 articles. Black's Preface pays tribute to the original; "About one thing there was no question: there could be no departure from the Peake tradition of accurate and reliable popular scholarship." Its length was 1126 pages + 16 maps. The new edition is based on the Revised Standard Version. The 62 contributors are from all[] branches of Protestantism in Europe and America. Its aim is to present to the layperson the "generally accepted results of Biblical Criticism, Interpretation, History and Theology".
