Matthew Henry (1662-1714) is best known for his commentaries on the Bible, wherein he applied his pastoral gifts to providing a practical and devotional commentary for all to read. In this magnificent work, Henry provides that same pastoral insight on the topic of the Lord’s Supper. He explains the nature of the Supper, how one should prepare his heart before taking it, the responsible way to receive it, and the benefits granted to worthy partakers.
Matthew Henry (1662-1714) was an English non-conformist pastor and Bible commentator who is an emblem of faithful fatherhood. He is the author of the famous commentary on the whole Bible. It is said that the Henry household was like unto the "gates of heaven," where the parents governed all family life by the Word of God.
"Of all the many treatises on the Lord's Table none possess more excellencies or fewer defects than Matthew Henry's COMMUNICANT'S COMPANION. It is very plain, very pious, and very practical. There is a simplicity, a naturalness, and a familiarity, which renders it peculiarly delightful reading, and makes us almost fancy ourselves enjoying the conversation of its venerable author." -Rev. John Brown of Edinburgh, Scotland (1825)
