Matthew Henry's commentary on the Bible is legendary. Used by literally millions they have stood the test of time, and are a testament to his desire to make the whole Bible and its teaching reach the ordinary man. In recent years we have seen a number of his works brought back into print. Here, however, we have something quite unique. Fifty years ago Allan Harman was given a small, well-worn book of handwritten sermon notes. It was clear that what he had was Matthew Henry's own handwritten notes, from a series of sermons he preached to his Chester congregation during 1691 and 1692. Harman knew these sermons needed to reach a wider audience and started turning these long forgotten sermons into what you hold in your hand today a revealing, and deeply spiritual work that allows us to read Matthew Henry on that most fundamental of doctrines - God's promise of unmerited favour to mankind. Harman filled in the shorthand gaps, added footnotes to help with passages obscure to our contemporary ears and translated the Greek, Hebrew and Latin quotes. He also provides a biographical introduction to help us picture Henry and see the context in which these sermons were preached. Matthew Henry's delightfully clear style is evident throughout the text and provides succinct, memorable quotations, that will stay with you.
