Matthew Henry His Life And Influence Pb
Full Product Description
Matthew Henry (1662-1714) is highly-valued by contemporary preachers and Bible users. Here we get a closer look at the life of Matthew Henry by an author who has had a life-long interest in Matthew Henry and his writings. Matthew Henry was the son of a Puritan pastor who had been silenced by the government of the time. Nevertheless Philip Henry, a godly man reared his family on Christian principles and Matthew followed the Lord from an early age. Although it was difficult to find suitable ministerial training, Matthew Henry eventually studied for the ministry. With government opposition relaxing, he became a Presbyterian pastor in Chester in 1687 and later in London from 1712. It is astonishing to note the amount of preaching and writing that he accomplished despite suffering from ill-health and knowing intense sorrow in his family life.

Matthew HenryDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
A compelling account of the life of a man whose Spiritual devotion was both challenging and inspiring. Reading how much time he devoted to prayer and the study of Scripture from an early age it is difficult to see how he could also minister to his flock and write his many volumes of exposition. Since his own diaries are missing, much of what is known about him comes from the accounts of friends and family members, but Allan Harman has used what material there is to paint a detailed picture of the man and the difficult era in which he lived – a time when religion and politics had no dividing line and, for a clergyman, failure to conform could be a treasonable offence. The book is rather oddly arranged, with chapters one to ten forming the biography and then separate chapters on Henry as preacher, commentator and writer which include much that is repeated from the first ten. The meat of the remainder could surely have been interleaved into the biography, leaving the chapter showing his influence on Jonathan Edwards, the Wesleys, Whitfield and Spurgeon as a fitting coda. Despite this I found it an enjoyable and enlightening read and don't hesitate to recommend it.
