Series: Matthew Henry
Time has sealed the reputation of Matthew Henry's classic commentary as a rich source of insight into God's word. Four centuries after its first publication, it remains one of the best-loved, most popular commentaries ever written. However, while its wisdom is timeless, the English language has changed much through the years. Words that meant one thing in Matthew Henry's day have taken on different meanings today. In addition, Henry's often wordy reflections are generations removed from the crisp style that communicates most effectively to contemporary readers. The Zondervan NIV Matthew Henry Commentary is a masterful response to these concerns. It delivers the heart and soul of Henry's incomparable writings in a style that is easy to read and understand. -Dr. Leslie Church's meticulous abridgment retains the essential content of the original work. - Easily misunderstood words have been replaced with modern ones while keeping Henry's style. - Use of the New International Version (NIV) instead of the King James Version makes this edition fully compatible with today's most widely used Bible translation. In one volume, here is a wealth of exposition, metaphors, analogies, and illustrations, ideal for - Personal devotions - Bible study - Sermon and lesson preparation
Ruby Peary5 Stars Out Of 5March 14, 2009Ruby PearyIt is a great study tool. I use it all the time. It is a great book for those who are serious about studying the Bible.
Tim Royappa1 Stars Out Of 5February 21, 2009Tim RoyappaThis is a severely abridged version of Matthew Henry's original commentary. Much of what has been edited out is Henry's actual commentary - his spiritual insights and practical applications - leaving behind mostly verse summaries, which are far less helpful for in-depth Bible study. I cannot recommend this volume.
