Matthew Henry's Commentary is excellent. I use it to plan and develop my Bible study lessons. The Commentary is especially helpful as we go through a soft cover book that we are studying now. The commentary helps to explain and expand on the scriptures that are mentioned and referred to in that book. The 6 volumes are much easier to read because of the larger print than the single copy of the Commentary that I had purchased earlier.
I have recently began reading Book 1 (Gen to Deut) and I already feel so blessed to own these volumes. I attempted reading some of this commentary online, but it doesn't compare to reading out of the books. The writing is beautiful and Henry really brings each verse to life with his commentary.
this was the very first commentary i purchased. it is very thorough and very comprehensive. great resource for seminarians as well as teachers. it is a very valuable and often used tool in my home library.
