About the Author

Matthew Henry was born near Wales on October 18, 1662.

Henry was primarily home-educated by his father, Rev. Philip Henry, and also at the Thomas Doolittle academy from 1680-1682. Henry first started studying law in 1686, but instead of pursuing a career in law he began to preach in his neighborhood.

After the declaration of liberty of conscience by James II in 1687, he was privately ordained in London, and on June 2, 1687, he began his regular ministry as non-conformist pastor of a Presbyterian congregation at Chester. He remained in this position for 25 years. After declining several times offers from London congregations, he finally accepted a call to Hackney, London, and began his ministry there May 18, 1712, shortly before his death.

Henry's reputation rests upon his renowned 6 volume commentary, An Exposition of the Old and New Testaments (1708-10, known also as Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible). He lived to complete it only as far as to the end of the Acts, but after his death other like-minded authors prepared the remainder from Henry's manuscripts. This work was long celebrated as the best English commentary for devotional purposes and the expanded edition was initially published in 1896. Instead of critical exposition, Henry focuses on practical suggestion, and his commentaries contain rich stores of truths.

Spurgeon used Henry’s commentary and commended it heartily, saying: "Every minister ought to read it entirely and carefully through once at least."

Matthew Henry died in Cheshire due to a stroke, on June 22, 1714.

The indexes of these books are missing chapter numbers making navigation difficult. Other than that they are invaluable as study resources. Well worth the $2.99 cost.
