Henry's profound spiritual insights have touched lives for over 300 years.

From Genesis to Revelation, Matthew Henry successfully combines practical application, devotional insight, and scholarship on the entire Bible. Henry has profound insights on the content, message and nature of God's divine revelation.

What he preached we are not told, but it was probably to the same purpose with his sermon on the mount.

And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities. Chapter 11. In this chapter we have, I. The constant and unwearied diligence of our Lord Jesus in his great work of preaching the gospel (v. 1). II. His discourse with the disciples of John concerning his being the Messiah (v. 2-6). What he preached we are not told, but it was probably to the same purpose with his sermon on the mount. But here is next recorded a message which John Baptist sent to Christ, and his return to it, v. 2-6. We heard before that Jesus heard of John’s sufferings, ch.

com User, June 28, 2003. I find the info in this book to be extremely helpful. This book has been condensed to fit six volumes into one handy book. Sometimes, when Matthew Henry expresses the same thought in two or more different ways, Mr. Church cuts down to a single sentence. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about what passages mean. Matthew Henry is the one to read.

Henry astutely presents the historical and cultural background for each book of the Bible, always beginning with a brief summary of the book's setting and larger purpose

Born the son of a clergyman on October 18, 1662, Matthew Henry was ordained into the British Presbyterian Church where he held the pastorate in Chester from 1687 to 1712. He was widowed, married again and had 10 children, three whom died in infancy. Henry died in 1714. Henry began work on his commentary as "Notes On The New Testament" in 1704 and the monumental work was completed shortly before his death in 1714. Remembered as a caring pastor, a passionate lover of the Word of God, and a man of great personal integrity, Matthew Henry has left his mark on the hearts of countless Christians who seek a deeper understanding of the riches that Scripture contains. This edition of Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible uses the King James text and is abridged from the original six volumes while faithfully retaining all of the vibrant themes of that classic work. Everything here is in Matthew Henry's own words and nothing relevant to today's reader has been omitted.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible

This commentary covers a lot of scripture and is very informative but the print so small.It strains my eyes even with my bifocals,especially at evening time.It is a big book,heavy.Of course I'm sure that it has to have smaller print in order to be a single volume to cover the whole Bible.People with better eyesight can do much better study.That's my situation and judgement on this commentary.

The reason I give this three stars is because it balances my love for the commentary with the print size of the book.

Matthew Henry is, in my opinion, one of the most amazing commentators of the Bible I have ever read. He has a great devotional style and shows a great knowledge of what God's words says and means. He is easy to read and does a fine job of explaining even the difficult passages. You may not agree with everything he says, but then again, since when has anyone ever agreed 100% with anyone?

On the other hand, you better have a magnifying glass to read this particular edition. The type is EXTREMELY small and sometimes very hard to read. I still use this edition but if I ever run across an edition of the complete commentary that has far bigger type, I will definitely get it and retire this one. If anyone knows of a bigger-type complete commentary (even if it is multi-volume), please respond to this and let me know.

Although somewhat antiquated language by today's standards, the MH commentary is by far one of the best commentaries out there. It has far more practical application than many of today's modern commentaries, and does not get bogged down in theological discussions that can be daunting to the everyday reader and student of the Bible. I highly recommend Matthew Henry's commentary to anyone who is looking for a companion to the Bible in order to deepen their understanding of God's Holy Word.

Very well written & expounded on by a believer way back before our world was completely out of control .. When right was
RIGHT&WRONG was wrong .. not according to our personal opinions BUT when there were absolutes;spoken by the One Creator, Who spoke all we've become ALL too familiar with&taken all too lightly.
Love this 6 volume set .. I have lived on this earth for 72 years&have seen much as well as experienced much&have come to the conclusion: OUR CREATOR, God Himself is the ONLY One that can fix things ... Ancient words for modern messes worked over 5,000 + years ago;still VERY applicable today through His spoken Word;

This is the most helpful and practical commentary I have ever read. I appreciate technical commentaries for sermons and such, but this really is the icing on the cake. It brings it all together with great application. I use it almost every day as I have my devotions and it has opened my eyes to the importance of slowing down and considering the text.

This book is great! It came exactly when I needed it and is awesome explaining the KJV bible verse by verse. It references other verses to help with context and getting the full picture of what Was meant. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is having trouble understanding the KJV as a resource among with other tools. For those, who use NIV, this book is helpful but you may want to find a NIV version to make it easier to comprehend the commentaries.

If you ever want a detailed and comprehensive perspective on a passage of scripture then this is your book. I rarely leave this book without learning something new and insightful. Sure the print is small, but considering the wealth of information at your fingertips, a little eye strain is well worth the trouble.
Bought the complete edition, covers every detail with clarity. The more concise one is good for reference but this larger one you can read all the way through nearly as a Bible itself with Matthew, as though walking through the greatest timeline of history. He makes plain and wise comments, I happily recommend it. All the scriptures are in Bold & before every book is a summary.

Only had it for a day, was led here by Charles Spurgeon to read it in a year. I already can see this is worth 5 stars. The print and book quality is the best they could do without making it too many volumes.
