5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew Henry "The Complete Commentary on the Whole Bible"
I was looking for an inspirational commentary for using with my Kindle to assist in studying the Bible. Had searched various web sites, but this product far outreaches them by giving a true account of the background and relavant information in helping a reader have a full and clear picture as to passages of scripture.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor presentation and navigation
The content of the book itself is good, but the presentation and navigation of this particular e-book is very disappointing. It is worth spending the extra money for the "best navigation" edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew Henry "The Complete Commentary on the Whole Bible", 14 Oct 2011
This review is from: MATTHEW HENRY - THE BESTSELLING UNABRIDGED 6 VOLUME COMPLETE COMMENTARY ON THE WHOLE BIBLE (Special Complete Edition): All 6 Volumes of the Bestselling ... Exposition for Kindle MATTHEW HENRY Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I was looking for an inspirational commentary for using with my Kindle to assist in studying the Bible. Had searched various web sites, but this product far outreaches them by giving a true account of the background and relavant information in helping a reader have a full and clear picture as to passages of scripture. You have an overview before each section, and then a detailed account. The one and only down side is that because it is an old publication it still uses roman numbers, so that when you want to search for certain sections you really need to have a knowledge of this. I have yet to find a commentary as encouraging as this, give the time and devotion to compliment studying God's Word.

This review is from: MATTHEW HENRY - THE BESTSELLING UNABRIDGED 6 VOLUME COMPLETE COMMENTARY ON THE WHOLE BIBLE (Special Complete Edition): All 6 Volumes of the Bestselling ... Exposition for Kindle MATTHEW HENRY Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Matthew Henry's commentary on the whole Bible at a brilliant price. It includes the biblical text of the King James Version and the full 6 volumes of this excellent commentary. Personally I find Matthew Henry so helpful in understanding and applying God's word.

So why only the 4 stars - it is due to the navigation. A bit more work on the navigation and this would have been THE version for the Kindle. Still worth getting - I am planning to set up book marks to take me to the start of each volume in the table of contents, maybe each book in the table of contents and so be able to navigate around a lot easier. Surely the production team behind this version could have produced something similar to aid navigation rather than letting us plough through the whole comprehensive table of contents.

1.0 out of 5 stars Navigation is awful, 3 Aug 2012

This review is from: MATTHEW HENRY - THE BESTSELLING UNABRIDGED 6 VOLUME COMPLETE COMMENTARY ON THE WHOLE BIBLE (Special Complete Edition): All 6 Volumes of the Bestselling ... Exposition for Kindle MATTHEW HENRY Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I have the hard copy of this and I wanted something that was accessible and easy to take around. The second part of that is fine, the 6 volumes on Kindle is a breeze.
However, trying to find anything on this is an absolute nightmare!!!
Turning one page at a time on a book that has over a quarter of a million pages is simply not on. There are links from the chapter headings but there is no simple way to find for example chapter 4 of 2Kings.
Waste of money, far too much hassle

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 14 Jan 2012
This review is from: MATTHEW HENRY - THE BESTSELLING UNABRIDGED 6 VOLUME COMPLETE COMMENTARY ON THE WHOLE BIBLE (Special Complete Edition): All 6 Volumes of the Bestselling ... Exposition for Kindle MATTHEW HENRY Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Not the easiest book to navigate but you soon get used to it! I've always loved my Matthew Henry Commentary and I'm really pleased that I can now carry it around simply and easily in the downloadable version! Great for Bible students, pastors, and all such people on the move...

Good value for money.

Very good price and instant delivery via Kindle! Very pleased with this product except that finding the book and chapter you need takes a long time unless you are very good at roman numerals! There are of course a number of books and comments to navigate your way through and this is not made easy with this version.

This is not a book to read from the beginning, and I found it impossible to navigate to the passage required. At the price I will not complain!

3.0 out of 5 stars Matthew Henry, 19 July 2013

This review is from: MATTHEW HENRY - THE BESTSELLING UNABRIDGED 6 VOLUME COMPLETE COMMENTARY ON THE WHOLE BIBLE (Special Complete Edition): All 6 Volumes of the Bestselling ... Exposition for Kindle MATTHEW HENRY Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I enjoy using this commentary and find his language surprisingly easy to understand.
The only drawback to using this is that there is no index at the front that takes you straight to the book, gospel or letter you wish to read about.
Having to scrawl through the entire index to get to 1 Peter 1 is tiresome. A shortcut would be useful.

It is too old fashioned for me. I found the numbering of the chapters unhelpful.

I would have preferred everyday language.

This is a tried and tested Bible commentary that has ben around a long time and much used. I found the format needed updating and as a Kindle book it is very difficult to find your way around. However, it was very cheap!!
