The Crossway Classic Commentaries

Original works by godly writers, tailored for the understanding of today's reader

For hundreds of years Christendom has been blessed with Bible commentaries written by great men of God who were highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. The Crossway Classic Commentaries series, carefully adapted for maximum understanding and usefulness, presents the very best work on individual Bible books for today's believers.

No other New Testament book poses more serious and difficult interpretative challenges than Revelation. Full of vivid imagery and striking symbolism, the church is ultimately reminded of God's sovereignty to accomplish His purposes regardless of any opposition. The Lamb of God will be the victor in the moral and spiritual conflict of the ages. This eschatological book portrays the last battle of human history, the career and defeat of the antichrist, Christ's millennial reign, and His judgment of the wicked and the righteous. The apostle John's vision of the glorified Christ and the last times both exhorts and instructs believers. With Henry's classic insights and exploration of Revelation's key passages, this commentary is especially relevant for today's reader.

Building upon a stream of exact exegesis beginning with the Reformation, MATTHEW HENRY (1662-1714) achieved a standard of applied analysis that has long marked his work as superior. He is best known for his seven-volume commentary on the Bible, which C. H. Spurgeon declared was "rich in analogies . . . superabundant in reflections . . . suitable to everybody, instructive to all."Alister McGrath (PhD, University of Oxford) is the Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at the University of Oxford, president of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, and senior research fellow at Harris Manchester College in Oxford.
