First among the mighty (commentaries) for general usefulness we are bound to mention the man whose name is a household word, Matthew Henry. He is the most pious and pithy, sound and sensible, suggestive and sober, terse and trustworthy ... he is deeply spiritual, heavenly, profitable; finding good matter in every text, and from all deducting the most practical and judicious lessons ... It is the Christian's companion, suitable to everybody, instructive to all." -- Charles H. Spurgeon

He began preaching at 24 years old and held pastorates until his death. The greatness of his sermons consists in their scriptural content, lucid presentation, practical application and Christ-centredness.
