Many biographies have been written on the life of English Presbyterian minister and Bible commentator Matthew Henry (1662-1714), but this is the original written by Sir J. B. Williams in 1828. From his pen, we are introduced closely to the personal life of Matthew Henry, with quotes from his personal papers.
Matthew Henry's commentary on the Bible, practical and devotional rather than of a critical nature, deeply impacted George Whitefield, Charles Wesley and generations of Christians to follow. It focused on biblical spirituality and on the need to glorify God in the whole of life. This book contains an abridged version of Henry's commentary on the Gospels
