A very attractive and handsomely preserved complete six volume set of Doddridge's commentary on the entirety of Holy Scripture. 

The youngest of twenty children [you read that right], he was the son of a pickle and oil dealer. I always feel like that's the set up to a book; pickle dealer, twenty kids. 

More importantly, as a young boy, he had a deep experience of God's grace and  sensed grace and a call to the ministry. His first and only charge was in Northampton, though he had offers from many quarters. An earnest evangelical, he was friends with George Whitefield and, in fact, took quite a bit of heat for giving the "field-preacher" a legitimate pulpit to preach in. He authored over 350 hymns and penned a work still in print today, The Rise of Progress of the Religious Life. It perfectly articulated the "New Birth" and spiritual life articulated by George Whitefield and John and Charles Wesley. It was while reading it that William Wilberforce became a Christian. The book has been in print almost without a stop since its first printing.

Additionally, he authored an important book designed to empower families to do meaningful, studious, and experimental devotion in the home and also as an aid to the pastorate. 

Spurgeon includes in his famous Commenting & Commentaries this recommendation, "I know no expositor who unites so many advantages as Doddridge; whether you regard the fidelity of his version, the fullness and perspicuity of his composition, the utility of his general and historical information, the impartiality of his doctrinal comments, or, lastly, the piety and pastoral earnestness of his moral and religious applications."
