About the Author
Matthew Henry (1662-1714) has been known and loved for three centuries for his devotional commentary on the Bible. It has not been generally known that he was also a distinguished preacher. He began preaching at twenty-four years old and held pastorates until his death. The greatness of his sermons consists in their scriptural content, lucid presentation, practical application, and Christ-centeredness.

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.
