Description

Time has sealed the reputation of Matthew Henry's classic commentary as a rich source of insight into God's word. Four centuries after its first publication, it remains one of the best-loved, most popular commentaries ever written. However, while its wisdom is timeless, the English language has changed much through the years. Words that meant one thing in Matthew Henry's day have taken on different meanings today. In addition, Henry's often wordy reflections are generations removed from the crisp style that communicates most effectively to contemporary readers. The Zondervan NIV Matthew Henry Commentary is a masterful response to these concerns. It delivers the heart and soul of Henry's incomparable writings in a style that is easy to read and understand. -Dr. Leslie Church's meticulous abridgment retains the essential content of the original work. - Easily misunderstood words have been replaced with modern ones while keeping Henry's style. - Use of the New International Version (NIV) instead of the King James Version makes this edition fully compatible with today's most widely used Bible translation. In one volume, here is a wealth of exposition, metaphors, analogies, and illustrations, ideal for - Personal devotions - Bible study - Sermon and lesson preparation

    Somewhat difficult to navigate to the spot you want to go to. If, for example, I want to read 2 Peter, I have to scroll past every other book, and all their corresponding chapters, to get to 2 Peter. This is not the worst thing in the world I know, but as I scroll on towards where I want to be the scrolling becomes choppy and "frozen" for lack of a better word. I guess my point would be: why not have the table of contents organized so that only the books are visible until a particular book is chosen, and once the book is chosen then the chapters of that book become available. I have an app that is like this and I really like it. I bought this book for the updated language, which is a bit better than the old English (although still not what I would have expected), but definitely could hope/wish for a better format.
