With Notes from the World’s Best-Loved Commentary
For 300 years, believers have turned to Matthew Henry’s timeless commentary for clear, concise help in understanding the Bible and relating its wisdom to practical Christian living. His unrivaled ability to combine comprehensive biblical exposition and down-to-earth guidance for daily life has established Henry’s reputation as a trusted and beloved teacher. Charles H. Spurgeon called it, “a Christian’s companion, suitable to everybody, instructive to all.”
The Matthew Henry Study Bible blends his inspirational notes with a full-featured KJV Bible, to enable readers to benefit from the simple piety and no-nonsense application of the biblical lessons that are the enduring legacy of his writings.
Classically designed to honor the history of the content but updated with helpful features for easy contemporary use, The Matthew Henry Study Bible accommodates the needs of the serious Bible student and provides more clarity for the interested layperson.
Study features include:
"This hardback Bible has the classic King James Version masterfully united with a favourite Bible commentator in an attractive format. This is the best from the old world, as both originated in the 1600's. Its value to the Bible reader is that it is void of contemporary thought, setting it apart from many of today's offerings. This hard cover volume is easy to hold and carry around. Each page has an orderly displayed layout, with quality introductions, helps and a thumb index! The font for the commentary may be a bit small but still remains easily readable. Each verse in the commentary starts indented, with chapter, verse number, and the targeted scripture verse in bold font, which cleanly separates it from the commentary on the verse before, being more of a commentary Bible than a study Bible. No-nonsense and enduringly clear is Matthew Henry's offerings for our following Christ today, with Hendrickson worthy of strong commendation for the excellent market production they have achieved."

“The study notes at the bottom of each page contain the choicest material from Henry’s massive work, making it much more useful to the reader. However, if one owns his complete work, or even the one-volume edition that is available, don’t get rid of it because it contains much more information than this study Bible. Study features include: Clear new typesetting of text and notes; Words of Christ in red; Presentation page; Book introductions, footnotes, and in-text quotations from Matthew Henry's writings; Side-column references; Biography of Matthew Henry; Concordance; and 8-page full-color map section.
“The son of a Puritan clergyman, Matthew Henry (1662-1714) became a popular pastor of a Presbyterian parish near London. He is best known for two major works. Exposition of the Old and New Testaments derived its popularity from being practical and devotional in nature, rather than a critical treatment of Scripture; and generations of ministers and laypeople alike have used his 6-volume Complete Commentary, which features an exhaustive verse-by-verse study of the Bible.
“The Matthew Henry Study Bible is a most welcome addition to the many study Bibles that are regularly being published because it accommodates the needs of the serious Bible student and provides more clarity for the interested layperson. This 400th anniversary year of the King James Bible makes this particular KJV edition most welcome. Certainly, the KJV is still alive and well after four centuries!”
