About the Author

Matthew Henry (1662–1714) has been known and loved for three centuries for his devotional commentary on the Bible. It has not been generally known that he was also a distinguished preacher. He began preaching at twenty-four years old and held pastorates until his death. The greatness of his sermons consists in their scriptural content, lucid presentation, practical application, and Christ-centeredness.

“We too get told that being a Christian is a bleak and burdensome business, and not being a Christian could be more fun; we too, like Henry's first hearers and readers, need to be reminded that is absolutely not so.”
- J I Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada
