Reviews mostly by Dr Peter Masters
This is the most famous of the historic commentaries, and for personal use it remains unsurpassed. There could be no more precious gift alongside the Bible than this treasure-house of applications and spiritual devotion. For daily Bible study, these volumes are supreme. For preachers and teachers also they are a vital part of the 'armoury' of commentaries, wonderfully promoting the art of pastoral preaching. Matthew Henry (1662-1714) wrote during his 25 years as a Presbyterian minister at Chester. His biblical learning was immense, and his analysis and explanations of the text superb.
