Matthew Henry was born in England in 1662 and was first educated at home by his father, a cleric and preacher, and then in the prestigious Thomas Doolittle Academy. He was ordered in London in 1687 and began his ministry as a non-conformist Presbyterian pastor. He is best known due to his monumental, four-volume work called Exposition of the Old and New Testaments, also known as Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible. Unlike other Bible commentaries, this work offers practical and morally-oriented, common-sense observations and pieces of advice instead of theoretical or textual criticism. Henry only completed his commentaries to the Old Testament, Gospels and Acts of the Apostles, and later, his followers made the commentaries to rest of the books. An abbreviated version of this work was later published, containing the very substance of the complete work, thus making it more accessible to common readers. BibleMaximum offers you this important and useful work as a module for their BibleMax Bible-reading program. If you are a preacher or a cleric, this work would be very useful as a source of wisdom for your preachings. If you are a layperson, this work will enrich your Biblical readings.
