An Exposition of the New Testament. By Matthew Henry. Vol. 1.

Author: Matthew Henry
Publisher: Thos. C. Jack
Publish Date: 1886

This is a small portion of Matthew Henry in quite a new shape. We gave this publisher permission to reprint an extract from our "Commenting and Commentaries"; but we had no idea that he would use it as a preface to his edition of Matthew Henry, as though we wrote it for that purpose, which we did not. We have never before seen this edition of the great commentator.

            Matthew Henry only wrote on a part of the New Testament and that which was done by others to complete the work is of inferior value. The publishers ought to apprise their readers of this in due time. This volume is the genuine article, consisting of the first seventeen chapters of Matthew; and we dare say a good many will like it in this portable form. The print is too small for our eyes.
