More About This Book

Overview

According to Wikipedia: "Matthew Henry (18 October 1662 - 22 June 1714), was an English non-conformist clergyman. He was born at Broad Oak, a farmhouse on the borders of Flintshire
and Shropshire. His father, Philip Henry, had just been ejected by the Act of Uniformity 1662. Unlike most of his fellow-sufferers, Philip possessed some private means, and was thus able to
give his son a good education. Matthew went first to a school at Islington, and then to Gray's Inn. He soon gave up his legal studies for theology, and in 1687 became minister of a Presbyterian congregation at Chester. He moved again in 1712 to Mare Street, Hackney. Two years later (22 June 1714), he died suddenly of apoplexy at the Queen's Aid House (41 High Street) in Nantwich while on a journey from Chester to London. Henry's well-known Exposition of the Old and New Testaments (1708-1710) is a commentary of a practical and devotional rather than of a critical kind, covering the whole of the Old Testament, and the Gospels and Acts in the New Testament. After the author's death, the work was finished by a number of ministers, and edited by G. Burder and John Hughes in 1811. Not a work of textual criticism, its attempt at good sense, discrimination, its high moral tone and simple piety with practical application, combined with the well-sustained flow of its English style, made it one of the most popular works of its type. Matthew Henry's six volume Complete Commentary, originally published in 1706, provides an exhaustive verse by verse study of the Bible. His commentaries are still in use to this day. Henry's commentaries are primarily exegetical, dealing with the scripture text as presented. Henry's primeintention was explanation, not translation or textual research."

    E book format doesn't do it justice...

    The format used for books tht come in series or multiple volumes (or divided like the bible) is absolutely useless in the book mark function and the search function. It will not return to last page read and makes it impossible to find specifice chapter and verse unless you happen to know what specific arbitrary electronic page number was assigned. Nook gets an F- on this one. The just got this format wrong and should not offer them until they get it fixed.

    Matthew Henry Concise Commentary

    His illuminations of the Scripture are clear and easily applicable and supportive to our walk of faith with God. Henry brings Jesus and his glory closer to us through his wise and gifted knowing God for himself, and by his being chosen to interpret Scripture for our edification. These are timeless, valuable writings.

    Weakness: The index is ih the rear of the book; nothing proceeds Genesis to inform of the contents. The Scriptural references are typed so close together that if you have large fingers you may not land on the chapter you are trying to get.
