"Allan Harman's biography puts in our hands a wealth of information about Matthew Henry. Here we discover his godly father, Philip Henry, his upbringing during times of persecution, and his faithful pastoral ministry in Chester, England. This book will be of great interest to historians, students of the Puritans, pastors, and thousands of others who continue to benefit from Henry's Commentary." ~ Joel R. Beeke(President and Professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletics, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan)
“Matthew Henry’s Commentary abides today as a classic exposition of the Scriptures. Many people from George Whitefield to Charles Spurgeon to the modern reader have found doctrinal wisdom and experiential refreshment in its pages. But few know the author and his Puritan roots. Allan Harman’s biography puts in our hands a wealth of information about Matthew Henry." Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

“To anyone who can read this brilliant biography without being humbled, challenged, inspired and motivated to ‘press on toward the goal’, I have only one thing to say — read it again. I am struggling to think of any biography that has spoken so clearly to me and it would be impossible for me to commend it too highly.” John Blanchard, Internationally known Christian preacher, teacher, apologist and author.
“a fascinating and well researched biography of one of the great fathers of expository preaching.” John Benton, Managing Editor, Evangelicals Now.
