Perhaps one of the most famous Bible commentators of all time, Matthew Henry's keen, thoughtful and practical insights into God's Word have been treasured by Christians for centuries. Henry believed the Bible answered every question and trial of life, and daily excerpts in Grant Me Wisdom reflect Henry's commitment to the Bible as the best source to understand and know God's wisdom.
Each month of this devotional has a theme that the month's excerpts focus on:
Matthew Henry (1662-1714) was a lover of the Bible from his very early years. After schooling in London, he was ordained in 1687 and pastored in Chestor, Wales for 25 years. At his home in Chester, Matthew Henry conducted family prayers at the beginning and the end of the day. In the morning he expounded the Old Testament, and in the evening the New Testament. These expositions, amended as the result of questions and comments from his family and his neighbors, are likely the basis of his commentary.
