Publisher's Description

Perhaps the only true rival to Matthew Henry 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."

    I cannot speak highly enough of Matthew Poole's Commentary on the Bible. Suffice it to say that I do not preach, teach, or write on the Scriptures without first consulting these volumes. He is a first-rate scholar and theologian, who wrote with an attentive eye to detail, history, typology, and a pastor's heart for practical application.

    The great British Reformed Baptist pastor Charles Spurgeon, when asked what commentary he would select if could have only one, responded that, since he had read Matthew Henry's expositions so thoroughly, he would pick Poole. Praise doesn't come much higher than that endorsement.

    While you can easily find Poole for free through various biblical study software programs, I have loved having the volumes in print as well. Yes, the print is small, but it's also crisp, dark, and clear. Hendrickson did a great job on the printing & binding which makes this superb resource an even greater joy to use. Pick them up.

    I started to read this very old commentary and found that it was not only good it was very great and next to John Calvin it's the perfect set. I think as well the print is small but that's ok still at 49 I can read it very easy. I wanted to get together with some friends of mine and redo this in larger type and maybe book by book and in the ESV version might be fun to restore ............... but for now this is a very good commentary ........ God Bless Matthew Poole !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    One one hand, I'm grateful to have the Matthew Poole collection available; I'm grateful also for the publishing efforts, in general, of this publisher. I would rather have paid twice the price, however, to have this in 6 volumes and in a readable format. The print in this 3-volume edition is challenging for even younger eyes.
