More About the Author

Building upon a stream of exact exegesis beginning with the Reformation, MATTHEW HENRY (1662-1714) achieved a standard of applied analysis that has long marked his work as superior. He is best known for his seven-volume commentary on the Bible, which C. H. Spurgeon declared was "rich in analogies . . . superabundant in reflections . . . suitable to everybody, instructive to all."

Matthew Henry's Commentary is sound in teachings, solid in doctrines, and rich in wisdom. As for the faithfulness to the Word of God, we can rely on this commentary because it has stood the test of time. I came across this commentary about 20 years ago when I was almost at a loss in finding good commentaries. In those days I was reading "Lectures to My Students" written by C.H. Spurgeon, and there he mentioned this commentary. Spurgeon says, "If a man can purchase but very few books, my first advice to him would be, let him purchase the very best..... Matthew Henry's Commentary having been mentioned, I venture to say that no better investment can be made,..... Get it, if you sell your coat to buy it." Recently they have published it in a new format without making major changes as far as the 6-volume boxed set publishied by Hendrickson Publishers is concerned. This new modern edition is readable especially for the younger generation. For our practical use, Matthew Henry"s Commentary is the best commentary on the Whole Bible.

I gave Henry 4 stars (I wish I could have given 4.5 stars), not because the books lack greatness and longevity, but because the text and theology are somewhat dated. (I have the 6 Vol set) This commentary is exhaustive in its look at Scripture and takes on many issues and many points that commentaries usually do not delve into. And, Henry typically deals with these topics very well. There have been many advances in historical and cultural knowledge regarding the Biblical times since Henry wrote this and the text can be hard to read at times. But, with this said, I absolutely recommend that every Christian has this commentary set, simply because few commentaries have such depth and breadth as Henry's. There are a few commentary sets that are better and up-to-date (Gaebelein's Expositor's Commentaries (OT and NT= 13 Vol)), but to start a library, one can not do better than to start with Henry's works. They will help guide you in your search for Christ-like behavior. As with all commentaries though, know that none is perfect and study accordingly.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible represents a monumental labor of love that took over 20 years to write. Composed between 1700 and 1722, Matthew Henry's writing is as eloquent and meaningful today as it was when he put pen to paper. Matthew Henry was the consummate biblical scholar and pastor, fired with a love for the Lord that drove him and inspired him in his explanation of the bible. The only shortfall of this version is it's small type, which is necessary to get the entire work into one volume. A truly outstanding work

Format: Hardcover
Matthew Henry's commentary covers every verse in the Bible. If you have a question on a particular verse, you can always turn to Matthew Henry and he'll give you some insight on the meaning as well as link it to other verses that talks about that concept. This edition has extremely small font size and is very hard on the eyes to read. In one sitting it is probably wise to only study about 5 verses in depth, as it is definitely full of meaning and not for skimming.

This is a timeless classic. No one is more practical and witty than Matthew Henry. His commentary has been a huge help to me in my Bible study and his orthodoxy is seldom surpassed in whole bible commentaries. I would highly recommend anyone who is a Christian to have this commentary on their bookshelf. It is not the Word of God, but it is an excellent help for us to achieve greater understanding and wisdom from God's Word.

Matthew Henry's commentaries are incredibly spiritual..he was definetly an inspired writer. I can't keep my nose out of them.His was a simple faith.. he was full of love and wisdom and he had a very liberal dose of the Holy Spirit.. in other words we could all benefit from this great work..its been around for 3 centuries, so he must have done something right..the six volume set has the king james text and this new edition is eminently readable..i have seen some that the printing was miniscule.. not this edition...very good and godly...please read these

The finest commentary available for our beloved Word of God. In his book, 'Delighting God,' D. James Kennedy states, "This classic of devotional commentary on the Scripture has stood the test of time and led thousands of people to a closer relationship with God. Charles Spurgeon, the great preacher of England, said he used to read it continually. George Whitefield, largely responsible along with Jonathan Edwards for the Great Awakening here in America in the eighteenth century, said that he had read the entire six volumes of 'Matthew Henry' through four times."(77). I can think of no greater endorsement.

I only gave it only four stars because the letters are so tiny. Otherwise, this is a very great set of commentaries. This set of books have been very helpful to me when I prepare my sermons. The Lord certainly gifted Matthew Henry in writing these commentaries. As a result, we too can be blessed by reading them! While you may not agree 100% with what he says, you will surely appreciate his deep thoughts on scripture. This is definately one of my top three favorite set of commentaries!
