Description

Matthew Henry (1662–1714) is highly–valued by contemporary preachers and Bible users. Here we get a closer look at the life of Matthew Henry by an author who has had a life–long interest in Matthew Henry and his writings. Matthew Henry was the son of a Puritan pastor who had been silenced by the government of the time. Nevertheless Philip Henry, a godly man reared his family on Christian principles and Matthew followed the Lord from an early age. Although it was difficult to find suitable ministerial training, Matthew Henry eventually studied for the ministry. With government opposition relaxing, he became a Presbyterian pastor in Chester in 1687 and later in London from 1712. It is astonishing to note the amount of preaching and writing that he accomplished despite suffering from ill–health and knowing intense sorrow in his family life.

Endorsements

This volume is highly recommended for personal spiritual reading, for the student of the history of preaching (they are after all an outstanding example of consecutive puritan preaching), as a guide to an accurate theological understanding of some of the main themes of the Bible, and to provide much inspiration for sermon construction and preparation.

THE REFORMED THEOLOGICAL REVIEW

To anyone who can read this brilliant biography without being humbled, challenged, inspired and motivated to 'press on toward the goal', I have only one thing to say - read it again. I am struggling to think of any biography that has spoken so clearly to me and it would be impossible for me to commend it too highly."
