Book Description

Matthew Henry (1662-1714) was a Presbyterian minister in England who began his commentary on the Bible in 1704. He completed his work up to the end of Acts before his death. Afterwards, his ministerial friends completed the work from Henry’s notes and writings. Time has sealed the reputation of Matthew Henry’s classic commentary as a rich source of insight into God’s word. For nearly 300 hundred years, Christian have consulted its rich insights into the very heart of God’s Word. Passage by passage, its prayerful, penetrating reflections inspire and challenge the reader. And now, in the tradition of the updated versions of Streams in the Desert and My Utmost for His Highest, the New Matthew Henry Commentary updates the language of the original, making it much easier to understand, while retaining its beauty and strong content. This one volume contains a wealth of exposition and comment, metaphors, analogies, and illustrations that have set Matthew Henry’s Commentary apart as one of the enduring legacies of faith. Ideal for personal devotions, Bible study, sermon and lesion preparations. Forever fresh and never failing to render new pearls of wisdoms, it’s a book you will reach for often to obtain deeper understanding of the Scriptures. Abridged and unabridged editions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully accessible version 7 Jun. 2013
What a joy this is! I have consistently used the complete Matthew Henry almost daily since I was a little boy - but I'm very aware that most people struggle to do that. As a family we have started to use this wonderful version of Matthew Henry in our daily Bible studies. Our two teenage sons are growing to love Matthew Henry and so many of the precious gems of this brilliant commentary are made available in such an easy and affordable manner.

A huge thank you to Martin Manser and Zondervan for this major piece of work.

Yes, in order to make this accessible and manageable the original has been slimmed down, but this has been a very happy exchange: some loss of detail in payment for a book that can be easily read and enjoyed by a much wider audience.

These are both very good. The more expensive edition published in 2013 The New Matthew Henry Commentary: Complete and Unabridged is the full version. The cheaper edition published in 2010 The New Matthew Henry Commentary: The Classic Work with Updated Language is the abridged concise edition. Unfortunately, this has not been made clear enough. Fair enough if one really wants the Concise Edition, but for the few extra pounds, I think it is better to get the full Unabridged Edition - The New Matthew Henry Commentary: Complete and Unabridged.

These editions still retain Matthew Henry's style, but the updated language is refreshing, and to my mind, does him due justice. My one wish would have been that these were to have a modern Bible translation integral to them, although that would have involved complications, including an increased size, when many of us will already have Bible versions installed separately.

1.0 out of 5 stars Modern language edition, but abridged 3 April 2012
By A.T.R. - Published on
This version of the beloved Matthew Henry Commentary is an updated version in contemporary English. Be warned, however, that THIS VERSION IS ABRIDGED! All the main points in the original seem to be present here; however, some of Matthew Henry's expansive comments and pious exclamations that make this work as much a devotional as a commentary have been edited out. Here is just one example, from Gen. 1:1-2.

The Son of God, the eternal Word and Wisdom of the Father, was with him when he made the world (Prov. 8:30), nay, we are often told that the world was made by him, and nothing made without him, Jn. 1:3, 10; Eph. 3:9; Col. 1:16; Heb. 1:2. O what high thoughts should this form in our minds of that great God whom we draw nigh to in religious worship, and that great Mediator in whose name we draw nigh!

We are often told that the world was made by the Son, and nothing was made without him (Jn 1:3, 10; Eph 3:9; Col 1:16; Heb 1:2)

So ... if you can manage the old English, get the Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible: Complete and Unabridged, by all means - Matthew Henry's extended musings on God and His word are very helpful and spiritually encouraging. But if you have to have a modern language edition, this will have to do.

2.0 out of 5 stars scripture search 14 Sept. 2012
By Keith - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Referencing specific locations (i.e. chapter, verse) is not possible. To obtain a location one must must go to the chapter and singularly go through each verse to arrive at desired locations. The search bar is inadequate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comments are great, but moving around in the book is difficult 21 Mar. 2013
By Sharon McCutcheon - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the book. Matthew Henry was and those updating his work are so gifted by God with a great understanding of God's word and the communication skills to make it easy for the common person to understand.

The one thing I don't like about it, in e-book form, is that it's difficult to pull up a specific section. You can use the Table of Contents to find where a certain book begins, but it's not broken down into chapters. It very hard and time consuming to get to a section that you want..

2.0 out of 5 stars I originally bought the old version on Kindle and thought it would be nice to have a hard copy 29 Sept. 2014
By vashhh - Published on
I agree with an earlier review, the text is more than an update of the old English language. There are whole paragraphs missing that have valuable insight. I originally bought the old version on Kindle and thought it would be nice to have a hard copy. After receiving this, I regret purchasing the updated version.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have... 13 Mar. 2012
By TrevorH - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A definite must have for ANY serious Bible scholar. Henry gives thorough explanations of what seems every line found in your Bible! Never a disappointment when I open these pages to get a deeper understanding of God's Word.

Worth every penny!
