Matthew Henry's remarks are invaluable and help to make things so much clearer. I don't always agree with his analysis, but for the most part, he has opened up my eyes to so much scripture. I have read Job - my favorite book of the bible - so many times, and I was amazed at what I had missed! The Matthew Henry Bible makes it so much easier to understand.
really liked the matthew bible just wish the pages were out of different paper as i like to underline points of interest an the ink or yellow bleeds right throu to the other page on verses I dont want highlighted now I am very careful to mark lightly with a pencil an Larg print would be great as us senior citizens have some trouble with our eyes All in all I would recomend this bible to my friends.
The page layout is the best i have ever seen , making using all the study helps , EASY & ENJOYABLE !
The text is placed closer to the outside margins.
The cross-references are in the centre , making much better readability & study, easier than the regular centre-column payout . Centre column Bibles have the Text placed far too close to the inner spine , making it hard to read , hard to use....unless it is done in the wide margins 'all around the text' format.
This Mt Henry is going to be used regularly, since it is so simple to understand how to use & make the most out of it !
This is actually the second Matthew Henry Study Bible that I've purchased. Gladly gave the other one away and bought this one. I love the quality of the imitation leather, feels better than most genuine leather bibles. Straight out of the box they lay flat, without even having to break them in. Love the red-letter, concordance, maps, print size, etc. Overall highly recommend this one.
