Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Whole Bible (MHCC) is one of my favorite resources for my study of God's Word. The only commentary I like better is Henry's Whole Bible Commentary! This has succinct, clear passages to enrich your study of the Bible, and help you understand it. A MUST for anyone interested in reading the Bible at all. I completely disagree with the other reviewer: While this book is old (1600's), that logic is flawed which would state that age is a problem--you're reading the Bible, wish is 2-3,000 years old! Henry's writing is scholarly and insightful, yet does not compromise clarity for even the beginning Bible student. Matthew Henry had a good education, even studying at Gray's Inn (also attended by the great Francis Bacon, among other notables). He was also a Presbyterian minister for 25 years. Henry's commentary was "heartily commended" by such famous preachers as Charles Spurgeon and George Whitefield. I give this book 5 stars, but would give it 10 if I could!

I highly recommend Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible for anyone interested in delving a bit deeper in the Scriptures. Matthew Henry's writings read like prose and are a treasure within themselves.

I was being generous when I gave this book two stars. After reading it, I was amazed that it is even carried in bookstores today! The book was copyrighted by Thomas Nelson in 1997, but the commentary was written by a man who died in 1714 and it reflects the basic mentality of a much earlier period! Most Bible students today expect a more scholarly approach.
