 Re:

Best commentary i have read so far.

Its a good choice, The concise is just bigger i think.

Of all the commentaries i have read that one seems the most accurate.

 Re:

You'll find an introduction to [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Henry]Matthew Henry[/url] on wikipedia.

Spurgeon used to tell his students; "if you don't have a copy of Matthew Henry, sell your coat and buy one and then preach in your shirt-sleeves"

 Re: Matthew Henry

A couple of old posts that might be of some interest, though unrelated to the commentary. From our sister geraldine;

 Re:

So you think Matthew Henry is better then Adam Clark? Just wondering. We own a Clark's commentary, not a MH.

 Re:

Charles Spurgeon said, "If I must have only one commentary, and had read Matthew Henry as I have, I do not know but what I should choose Poole. He is a very prudent and judicious commentator . . . not so pithy and witty by far as Matthew Henry, but he is perhaps more accurate, less a commentator, and more an expositor."

God Bless

I like that. Thanks for passing it on.

Okay, so sell your coat for Matthew Henry; wonder what Spurgeon would have recommended selling for Poole? :-P

 Re:


They are very different in style and purpose and it theological position.
Adam Clark was Methodist Arminian, and his work is more 'scholarly'.
Matthew Hentry was Calvinist and his work more devotional.

If you are struggling to interpret a difficult passage Adam Clark will nearly always have some suggestions for you. Although his work is more scholarly he was a regular preacher who had Wesley's confidence.
