"First among the mighty for general usefulness we are bound to mention the man whose name is a household word, Matthew Henry. He is most pious and pithy, sound and sensible, suggestive and sober, terse and trustworthy. You will find him to be glittering with metaphors, rich in analogies, overflowing with illustrations, superabundant in reflections....
....His is a kind of commentary to be placed where I saw it, in the old meeting-house at Chester--chained in the vestry for anybody and everybody to read. It is the poor man's commentary, the old Christian's companion, suitable to everybody, instructive to all."
I really like these volumes, they are quite nice for the price. Matthew Henry commented at a time, before there were so many conflicting denominational interpretations. I find his comments, to conform to a hermitical interpretation of the scriptures. And are right in line, with a non biased reading of the Bible.
I also like that the text of the KJV is included, unlike the one volume version, and the print is a much more readable size. So in my opinion, if you want the best commentary going, get yourself one of these sets.
The 6 volume set of Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible is a very convenient way to use this commentary. The smaller size of each book allows you to take the book you need with you...with ease. Great set to give as a gift.
Matthew Henry's Commentary is the best detailed commentary you can own. Matthew Henry goes into very strong detail on the Word of God. If you want to really go very deep into the Word of God this is a must have for your Christian Library.
