Featured Review

"Here is a bait that has no hook under it...a pleasure which God himself invites you to, and which will make you happy, truly and eternally is certain that there is true pleasure in true religion."

Matthew Henry, (1662-1714) Beloved commentator, pastor and prolific writer


Matthew Henry, the great Puritan commentator, here looks at what gives people real joy. He looks at 12 different types of Christian pleasure, reviews what God has done to bring sinners joy, demonstrates that Christian experience proves this and challenges the reader to join in! This was Matthew Henry's last book and was at the press when he died in 1714. This classic of Christian living is brought to you by J. I. Packer who adds an extensive introduction to the book showing its significance and gestation from Henry's ministry.
