“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

7.13 Helpful Resources

We are blessed to have available to us today the writings of many wonderful men of God who have come before us, true saints of the faith, some of whom also gave their lives as martyrs. More than ever in history, we have a wealth of information available to read and learn from and the freedom to openly read these materials (Pro. 11:14; 27:17).[1] The resources listed below are helpful and predominantly free of false teachings. However, please note that I do not completely agree with or endorse all the content in these resources. Great discernment must be used when reading, recommending, and using any non-inspired materials written by man. While many other wonderful resources are available, I’ve only included those I can vouch for personally as ones that will not lead you astray.[2]

Some of the books are out of print and may be difficult to find. But I recommend that you try to find and read editions that were printed as close to the original author’s first date of publication as possible, as newer revisions offer an opportunity once again for editors and publishers to twist, distort, or even rewrite the original author’s content and introduce their own false doctrines and teachings. And lastly, before purchasing any book, look to see what other books that same author (and publisher) have published; doing so will help you understand if their books can be trusted to be in agreement with the “message of truth” (Eph. 1:13; cf. Jude 3).

[Note: this work was completed in 1721 after his death by others who tried to complete his work. There are also many revisions titled Matthew Henry’s Bible Commentary, either complete or concise/abridged. The later versions are marked as “carefully revised and corrected” or “new modern edition”; however, I recommend you find and use his original exposition version (up to the date 1721). What I’ve learned is that when someone says “revised” or “corrected,” it often means that they have altered it to fit their own theology.]
