John Charles Ryle 1816 1900 was the first Bishop of Liverpool England. After a dazzling sporting career at school and university poised on the verge of national recognition he gave it all up to become a minister in the Church of England.However his leadership abilities on the field of play stood out and prepared him for the difficult task of being an evangelical leader of a mixed diocese in the most sectarian of English cities.

Fifty years ago Allan Harman was given a small, well-worn book of handwritten sermon notes. They were Matthew Henry's own notes from a series of sermons preached to his Chester congregation during 1691 and 1692.

It is a very comprehensive work; all but four canonical books are mentioned. Harman translated the shorthand, added footnotes to help with obscure passages and translated the Greek, Hebrew and Latin quotes. He has also provided a biographical introduction to help us see Henry in the context in which these sermons were preached. Matthew Herny's delightfully clear style is evidence throughout the text and provides succinct, memorable quotations that will stay with you.

Matthew Henry (1662-1714), was born into a committed Puritan family and followed his father's footsteps into full-time ministry, being ordained as a Presbyterian pastor in 1687. Despite ill health, deep bereavement, and the demands of his pastoral duties, Henry produced many devotional and scholarly works. They remain popular three centuries after his death, especially his classic commentary on the whole Bible.
