Reviews - What do customers think about Matthew Henrys Concise Commentary (Value Series)?
Such a helpful aid to understand the Bible. Apr 14, 2010
I value this book not only because of it's content, but also because of its size and the style in which it is written. The size does not overwhelm me like other aids I've bought. It's easy to hold and I can quickly find the reference for which I'm looking. Henry's book - at least the one I purchased - is very user friendly. The style is straight forward and easy to understand. I'm a very literal thinker so the way this book is written does not cause me to go "tilt" trying to figure out what he is conveying.
Just as the cover states - it is easy to read, it is outlined chapter by chapter -- all in one book. I believe it would be good for beginning student's of the Bible as well as for seasoned teachers and seasoned people who enjoy studying the Bible. Definitely a great resource tool. I also think it would be a good help for non-believers who study the Bible, for students researching for reports, etc. It appears to give very straight explanations that would not cause controversy for any reader, student, researcher.
Supplements included in the Matthew Henry Commentary include:Fulfilled prophecies of the Messiah, harmony of the gospels, the Jewish calendar, maps and other documentations to help one understand the timeline in the Bible. Time truly gets away from me when I wander through the verses, the maps, timelines, etc. imagining what it was like "back then" but it also makes me so grateful for the "now" of time for us.
Poor Navigation Feb 7, 2010
The Index does not allow locating a specific book and chapter such as 1 John 1:1 or even 1 John. This renders this cumberson and difficult to use. Needs a better navigation system.
a quick look Feb 6, 2010
The printing was SO SMALL our OLD eye could not read it easily
and sadly had to return it.
Too hard to Read Dec 21, 2009
This is a lovely book in most every way, except the print is very teeny, tiny and the ink is light, so it is very difficult to read and that's what I bought it for, to read. So I am disappointed.
one of a kind Nov 14, 2009
Excellent. 2000 pages of extremely small print. This thing is equivalent to 12,000 pages of normal-sized text. I've never read any commentary so thorough. I'm looking forward to years of Bible study with this book alone.
