Zondervan NIV Matthew Henry Commentary (Premier Reference)

Zondervan NIV Matthew Henry Commentary (Premier Reference) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only edition of Matthew Henry adapted to the New International Version. For almost three centuries, Henry's work has been a source of inspiration and wisdom. But modern readers sometimes get bogged down in Henry's wordiness and archaic expressions and get confused by works that have changed meaning over the years. This edition contains the essence of what he wrote, but in simpler terms that are adapted to the NIV.

Book News Annotation:

Leslie Church has condensed and modernized the 300 year old commentary and adapted it to the New International Version of the Bible.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Time has sealed the reputation of Matthew Henry's classic commentary as a rich source of insight into God's word. Three centuries after its first publication, it remains one of the best-loved, most popular commentaries ever written. However, while its wisdom is timeless, the English language has changed much through the years. Words that meant one thing in Matthew Henry's day have taken on different meanings today. In addition, Henry's often wordy reflections are generations removed from the crisp style that communicates most effectively to contemporary readers. The Zondervan NIV Matthew Henry Commentary is a masterful response to these concerns. It delivers the heart and soul of Henry's incomparable writings in a style that is easy to read and understand. -Dr. Leslie Church's meticulous abridgment retains the essential content of the original work. - Easily misunderstood words have been replaced with modern ones while keeping Henry's style. - Use of the New International Version (NIV) instead of the King James Version makes this edition fully compatible with today's most widely used Bible translation. In one volume, here is a wealth of exposition, metaphors, analogies, and illustrations, ideal for - Personal devotions - Bible study - Sermon and lesson preparation

Synopsis:

As the anticipated one-volume edition of the classic devotional commentary, this single book preserves, in condensed form, all that is most valuable and timely in the original multi-volume edition.
