John Brown of Haddington (1722 ? 1787), was a Scottish divine and author. The Self Interpreting Bible was Brown's most significant work, and it remained in print (edited by others), until well into the twentieth century. The objective of providing a commentary for ordinary people was very successful. The idea that the Bible was "self-interpreting" involved copious marginal references, especially comparing one scriptural statement with another. Brown also provided a substantial introduction to the Bible, and added an explication and "reflections" for each chapter. This edition, published circa 1850, contains numerous beautifully coloured detailed illustrations.
