Matthew Henry (1662 - 1714), the Prince of Bible expositors, has an accessible style with a proliferation of pithy phrases and proverb-like sayings. George Whitefield recorded in his journal in 1738: 'Had this sentence out of Henry much pressed upon my heart to comfort me in my retirement, "The mower loses no time whilst he is whetting his scythe." Spurgeon stated, "Every minister ought to read it entirely and carefully through once at least."
The author has read Henry's entire exposition over about 35 years and extracted a selection of memorable quotes accompanied with a useful topical index, which will be a great help in sermon preparation and personal study.
