George Williams (1850-1928) was born in Dublin, Ireland, and served in the Civil Service of the British Government at Dublin Castle. Converted at age sixteen, Williams was an untiring Christian worker in spite of chronic health problems. His close association with the evangelical revivals of the nineteenth century, especially those of D.L. Moody in England, brought him into contact with the outstanding Bible expositors and teachers of his day. His own evangelistic ministry was conducted throughout Ireland and Europe where his proficiency in French, German, Italian, and Spanish allowed him to preach directly to the people. Following his retirement from government service, Williams devoted the last twenty years of his life to renewing his knowledge of Greek and to the study of Hebrew in preparation for writing the Complete Bible Commentary.
