Matthew Henry’s Commentary On The Whole Bible

MatthewHenryCommentaryOnTheWholebibleCompleteAndUnabridged.jpgTo the left is another bible commentary I’m very fond of.
Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible – Complete and Unabridged is a huge book coming in at a little under 2,500 pages. Unlike the Believer’s Study Bible which I wrote about yesterday, the print is rather small for my eyes.
Then again, I’m at the age where, when I need to buy a new bible, only shop for those 12.75 – 14 point fonts!
You can pick this book up at ChristianBook.com for about $25.00.
I also need to point out that I have this entire commentary within my e-Sword software.
Here’s the blurb:
Most one-volume editions of Matthew Henry’s Commentary have been abridged or rewritten. This edition boasts the entire text of the original multi-volume commentary. Henry’s succinct chapter summaries and helpful outlines are included; only the KJV text is omitted to save space. Roman numerals are changed to Arabic, and Greek and Hebrew words are transliterated. This commentary follows a a section-by-section format and is based on the KJV.
Matthew Henry (1662-1714) has been known and loved for three centuries for his devotional commentary on the Bible. He was also a distinguished preacher. He began preaching at twenty-four years old and held pastorates until his death. The greatness of his sermons consists in their scriptural content, lucid presentation, practical application, and Christ-centeredness.
