Very good edition to have on Kindle
on December 17, 2010
Though recognizing that the Kindle is dedicated reading device, we are used to the ease of navigation which common computers perform. And even with printed books, navigation is relatively simple. Flip to chapter headings or open the book to the table of contents to determine where you want to go, particularly in a resource as large as Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible.
This edition of Matthew Henry's Commentary really makes reading the commentary on the Kindle a pleasure. Navigating is relatively straightforward and simple. Follow the directions which the publisher gives in the product description on the Amazon product page and you will find where you need to be and can get about the business of reading Henry's comments on the particular passage in question. It took me only a few minutes to get the hang of it.
As far as the commentary itself, it is a wonderful devotional commentary written from one Puritan's perspective. You don't have to agree always with Henry to benefit from his work. If you are expecting superficial application and 21st-century illustrations, you'll be disappointed. After all, Henry lived from 1662-1714. For generations, though, readers have profited from Henry's insight. They still do.
Having it so easily accessible on the Kindle is incredible. The print version I have in my library is six volumes, and I have it on the Logos Bible Software on my notebook computer. My Kindle now provides the easiest and most convenient way to enjoy Henry at any time and any place.
