About the Author
Matthew Henry (16621714) 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.

I have used the old version for years and valued it very much,however the new one is hard for me to adjust to because the verses are not seperated at the lines.I gave mine away but my wife kept hers and loves it.
What a wonderful product! This Bible has the classic King James Version masterfully united with my favorite Bible commentator. This is the best from the old world, as both originated in the 1600's. Its value to the Bible reader is that it is void of contemporary thought. This sets it apart from many of today's more popular materials. This hard cover volume is easy to hold and carry around. Each page has an orderly displayed layout. The font for the commentary may be a bit small but its so easy to read. Each verse in the commentary starts indented, with chapter, verse number and the targeted scripture verse in bold font, which cleanly separates it from the commentary on the verse before. I am happy to report that this is more of a "Commentary Bible" than a "Study Bible". Don't misunderstand me; the texts of Scripture are totally separated from the commentary. However, as each comment is on the same page as the corresponding scripture, I find myself reading these concurrently. The Matthew Henry Complete and Unabridged Commentary is cumbersome/voluminous and becomes fairly wordy. This Bible cuts to the chase and presents his most significant observations. In my quick studies, or when gathering with various Bible Study groups, I am now using this KJV Commentary Bible along with my NIV Study Bible. I am recommending that you add this to your favorite Study Bible as well. Gordon Sironen
