Moments of Meditation from Matthew Henry Author:Fredna Bennett More than 250 years have passed since Matthew Henry wrote his famous commentary, begun in November of 1704 and completed in 1710. Through the years the work has established itself as the most widely known, most used and most quoted commentary in the English language. Dr. Wilbur M. Smith has called it, "the greatest devotional commentary of all t... more »ime," and Dr. F. F. Bruce describes it as "one of the great theological classics of English literature."
Many have heard of Matthew Henry but few have had the fortitude to read his massive commentary. Then, a few years ago, his original six-volume work was skillfully condensed by Dr. Leslie Church and published as a 2000-page, one-volume work, making the commentary equally valuable to layman and pastor.
Now, you as reader have available a book that many have been waiting for -- Matthew Henry's meditations arranged in a meaningful way for daily devotional use. Unlocking the treasures of Matthew Henry for family and private devotions, these _Moments of Meditation_ retain the spirit of the original work, skillfully condensed to challenge readers today.
The purpose of devotional reading is spiritual growth in the life of the Christian believer. Too often, in this modern day, typical devotional books provide "baby food," the milk of the Word rather than meat! Matthew Henry, on the other hand, offers the believer a steady diet of meat -- for 366 days, a full year.
A full Scripture Index has been added at the close of this volume for the convenience of the reader and Bible student.« less
