Reviews - What do our customers think?
One of the best one volume commentary  Apr 6, 2005
This is one of the best value-for-money, conservative, one volume commentary on the Bible. Lest one despise "traditional" interpretations and commentaries, let us not lose sight of the contributions Matthew Henry made in this volume. This book is often one of the initial commentaries a novice bible student would acquire, and I believe it is a "safe" choice. Theologically, I do not agree with Matthew Henry on certain issues i.e. eschatology, but on the whole, this is an excellent effort by Henry. This volume is also good for personal devotions and meditations. I am taking away one star for some theological weaknesses and differences.

Many contemporary commentaries are typically "broadminded" and latitudinarian in convictions. Such commentators characteristically resort to rationalistic reasoning and exegetical gymnastics to explain away certain verses of Scripture (so as to appear erudite?). I personally do not recommend such commentaries to young students who have no firm foundations in the Scripture.
a classic work--but one which still requires close reading  Dec 9, 2004
Matthew Henry is certainly a pioneer in the field of biblical commentaries. His work is lengthy, discussing his interpretations and thoughts of literally every single verse in the Holy Scriptures. Just to have written such a massive work is evidence that Henry is a man of God who holds the Scriptures in high regard. I gave the work 3 stars rather than 5 for several reasons: 1)Henry either was not aware of (which is expected) or else does not disclose important cultural and historical information which is critical to any study of the Scriptures; 2)Henry's tone usually sounds so authoritative that I have to remind myself that his work is simply a commentary and NOT fact; and 3)Henry very rarely discusses the original Hebrew/Greek/Aramaic words, and how this influences our understanding of the Scriptures.

I encourage any reader of Henry's commentary to think for themselves, under guidance of the Holy Spirit, using solid methods of biblical hermeneutics (interpretation).Below are some of Henry's comments from Genesis Chapter 1, verses 1 through 2, which you can read from this site's "Look Inside This Book." I have included my own comments as well, to show some of the numerous instances where I disagree with Henry, or am at least uncertain of his interpretations.

"In these verses we have the work of creation in its epitome and in its its epitome, v.1, where we find...that God the Father Almighty is the Maker of heaven and earth."

The New American Standard version (NAS) of the Bible reads as follows (verse 1): "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." In the NAS, God is not specified as being God the Father. How does Henry reach this conclusion? How do we know that the Holy Spirit, or perhaps even Jesus, did not create the heavens and the earth? This may be evident in later Scriptures, but nonetheless I think it would be helpful if Henry explained his reasoning to the reader here, in his discussion of Genesis 1:1.

"It is the visible part of the creation that Moses here designs to account for, therefore he mentions not the creation of angels..."

First of all, we don't know for sure that Moses wrote Genesis, this deduction is derived from tradition. But granted that Moses DID write Genesis, how does Henry know Moses' "design" in writing Genesis 1:1? I have no idea what Moses was thinking when he wrote Genesis 1:1, but perhaps Henry was (divinely?) given some information that the rest of us don't have.

Second, it is my own opinion that angels are not mentioned in verse 1 because they were not created at that time. It makes more sense to me that Chapter 2, v.1 describes the creation of angels: "Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts." Are angels not the "hosts" of heaven, and human beings the "hosts" of the earth?

I write these comments only to remind that Henry's commentary is neither authoritative nor exhaustive. You could combine Henry's commentary with 10 other complete commentaries and only begin to unravel the truths and mysteries contained in God's Word.

In summary, this is a solid, conservatively written commentary with many insights. Nonetheless, there is no substitute for plain old-fashioned study of God's Word. Use this commentary as A source if you like, but not THE ultimate source, God's Word.
Superb Commentary of God's Word  Jun 1, 2004
I gave Henry 4 stars (I wish I could have given 4.5 stars), not because the books lack greatness and longevity, but because the text and theology are somewhat dated. (I have the 6 Vol set) This commentary is exhaustive in its look at Scripture and takes on many issues and many points that commentaries usually do not delve into. And, Henry typically deals with these topics very well. There have been many advances in historical and cultural knowledge regarding the Biblical times since Henry wrote this and the text can be hard to read at times. But, with this said, I absolutely recommend that every Christian has this commentary set, simply because few commentaries have such depth and breadth as Henry's. There are a few commentary sets that are better and up-to-date (Gaebelein's Expositor's Commentaries (OT and NT= 13 Vol)), but to start a library, one can not do better than to start with Henry's works. They will help guide you in your search for Christ-like behavior. As with all commentaries though, know that none is perfect and study accordingly.
Complete Commentary on every Verse  Jun 28, 2003
Matthew Henry's commentary covers every verse in the Bible. If you have a question on a particular verse, you can always turn to Matthew Henry and he'll give you some insight on the meaning as well as link it to other verses that talks about that concept. This edition has extremely small font size and is very hard on the eyes to read. In one sitting it is probably wise to only study about 5 verses in depth, as it is definitely full of meaning and not for skimming.
I suppose there are worse Commentaries  Dec 11, 2002
The ease at which this book can be read and its "cleverness" can not and should not be mistaken with the worth this work should be appropriately given, or in this case not given.

I certainly wouldn't go searching for a Commentary that was worse than this. Matthew Henry has incredibly taken a marvelous work and tossed it on its side and in the process, loses much of the greatness within the words of the Old Testament. The greatest weakness is the time of its writing, before any great insight could have been determined through the archaeology and scripture study. This and its inherent design feature to overlook obvious doublets and themes of the individual stories warrants an extremely careful and educated read of this book.

Granted, this book will work well if one wants to take the holy scriptures and adapt them to their own personal ideaology, stripping the words of their original meaning. However, if one wants to actually delve into the scriptures and unlock the hidden doorways of information within their words, this book will hardly give such an experience and enlightenment.
