From the Back Cover

Time has sealed the reputation of Matthew Henry's classic commentary as a rich source of insight into God's word. Three centuries after its first publication, it remains one of the best-loved, most popular commentaries ever written. However, while its wisdom is timeless, the English language has changed much through the years. Words that meant one thing in Matthew Henry's day have taken on different meanings today. In addition, Henry's often wordy reflections are generations removed from the crisp style that communicates most effectively to contemporary readers. The Zondervan NIV Matthew Henry Commentary is a masterful response to these concerns. It delivers the heart and soul of Henry's incomparable writings in a style that is easy to read and understand. -Dr. Leslie Church's meticulous abridgment retains the essential content of the original work. - Easily misunderstood words have been replaced with modern ones while keeping Henry's style. - Use of the New International Version (NIV) instead of the King James Version makes this edition fully compatible with today's most widely used Bible translation. In one volume, here is a wealth of exposition, metaphors, analogies, and illustrations, ideal for - Personal devotions - Bible study - Sermon and lesson preparation

I've always enjoyed Matthew Henry's commentary for its devotional quality. His phrasing of truth has often led me to pray and think about what the biblical text is saying to my heart personally. I first bought this modernized version in hardback in 2006. For me, it was a welcomed update to the original (and sometimes archaic) language of the Old English classic. The only problem being that the print is extremely small and tends to run down towards the binding - typical of a work of this magnitude.

Enter the Kindle version with its adjustable font size ... I feel like a kid in a candy store! These old tired eyes are grateful to have a customizable "over 40 edition" of this work. The Kindle version is everything I'd hoped it would be. Navigation from the TOC is bulky, to say the least, and should have been made more user friendly. But from the start of a book, you can easily jump from book to book across the entire commentary. And from a chapter, you can easily jump from chapter to chapter. So between these two tricks and the search feature, navigation is simple enough in the end.

I feel like I've discovered an old familiar friend all over again for the first time. I've always wanted to read this commentary cover to cover, but was previously prevented from doing so do to the micro font size. But now with the adjustable font and pleasing screen format, I begin my long desired endeavor with this very usable Kindle edition.

I haven't read this from cover to cover. I don't think that is the purpose of the book. I have used this as a reference for my bible readings. I find the info in this book to be extremely helpful. I have a commentary Bible which is helpful but this book goes a step further. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about what passages mean. Matthew Henry is the one to read.

Matthew Henry was a great Puritan writer. His commentary is ranked by many as one of the best in the English language. Charles Spurgeon placed Henry's commentary as his favorite commentary. I would put his just under Adam Clarke. This commentary is a one volume edition from the entire works of Henry. While not as thorough as the complete set, this volume is reliable and can help any Bible reader with understanding the text. While the book is a bit massive, it sits here on my desk and I use it often.

A few years ago, I picked up a Matthew Henry commentary book, old style, it was informative but not always easy to comprehend, and yes, quite bulky. Since I got this version I have been reading the bible again starting from the beginning and then reading his commentary, a chapter at a time, I can do this! I still don't always understand his meaning but not because of archaic manner of writing, just because, well, this guy was pretty deep. I would definitely recommend this version for all who want to delve deeper into the bible.

Wow! Very easy to read; yes, the print is not large but this is a many page volume book. Excellent for sermon preparation; Stays in the middle of Calvinism and Arminianism which employs uncommon (unearthly) strong wisdom. Also is in modern english so better than the older version for me; a mere lad of 40-50 yrs of age.

When reading the bible, sometimes I need an item expanded upon in context and this is my Go-To favorite. Henry has a way of writing things and putting them in wonderful wording. An inspired teaching. I bought copies for several persons who would appreciate Henry's depth of thought.

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."
