It delves into scripture like no other. Mr Henry was most definitely inspired by the Holy Spirit's leading because no carnal man can expose the Bible in this manner. Whenever I come upon a baffling verse in scripture, I turn to this book and like another reviewer said, you end up reading a sermon.
The depth, clarity and consistency of this work boggles the mind and Mr Henry's command of the English language is marvellous, I often find myself praising the Lord for blessing His children with such an anointed servant (for over 300 yrs!!). Unlike most, this commentary is very economical with references to other verses but when it does do this, the result is quite effortlessly poignant. This commentary continually displays my impoverished knowledge of scriptures, which I thank the Lord for cause it not only brings me down to earth but also inspires diligence in study.
I just hope and pray that more and more Christians will find this material and study it with diligence, it will surely edify and go a long way into dispelling maligned notions that exists today.
To you that have been gracious enough to read this review, I have one advice; BUY this commentary now you will be blessed indeed.
Every Christian should own one.
This commentary reaches into every nook and cranny of the bible and
comes up with gems that remain oblivious to many a christian (at least myself).
One thing is for sure, Matthew Henry had a gift of exposition and was steeped in the scriptures. His notes are honest and appear effortless in its delivery, definitely exquisite in its execution. Matthew knew well enough that man would be judged for every vain word he/she speaks - whats more our opinion of the everlasting Word of the most high. He appears to have submitted and surrended all pre-conceived opinions and or notion of his and followed the Holy Spirit's bidding (this theme appears to be continued in post Acts books, which were compiled by friends from MH's notes) . And that effort was repaid by a great measure.
This book should not be restricted to Ministerial use, every Christian family should own one.
Instead of publishing it in ten volumes or so, which would then have made it possible for the publishers to keep the font size that of an ordinary book, they have condensed it in a single volume. That essentially forced them to keep the font size i.e. the size of the letters so small that you either read it with difficulty or have to use a magnifying glass.
The contents may be the best in the world but you definitely don't want them in a script size which makes it largely unreadable.
I wish they publish the book in a more readable size.
