Description: The Concise Commentary on The Gospels. Although several biographies have been created to chronicle the miracle of Matthew Henry's work, only one captures the character of the man. It was written by J. B. Williams in Shrewsbury, England, and published in 1828. In his biography, we are introduced to the inner life of Mr. Henry, as revealed in his personal papers. Charles P. Spurgeon required each of his sons to read Matthew Henry's full commentary through three times before he would allow them to marry; that's how much he valued Henry's insight into the Scriptures. Read Matthew Henry slowly and carefully, he will give you insights to the Scriptures that you've never found anywhere else.
