Would like to give it 5 stars

I will be glad to do another review and give this 5 stars but I need a better table of contents so I can know where the books of the bible begins. Someone else placed this same complete on volume 2 and it was responded to well with a location table where the books begin in the new testament. Please fix this issue and let me give it a glowing review as I love Matthew Henry.

This does not have the text of the bible in it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

My biggest problem is that it does not read the text of the bible then give Matthew Henry's commentary (concise edition) on that section.

I have read all of Matthew Henry's commentary on the whole bible (original/whole edition) before. And I was sorta looking forward to this shorter edition but because they didn't read the text of the scripture before reading the commentary it just fill like something, something important, is missing from the whole work.

I think the reason I'm so sad by this is this could of been such a helpful work for Christians. The bible with helpful short commentary as you read through. But because of the editor choices the whole work is, in my opinion, useless.

Would you recommend Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary on the Whole Bible, Vol. 1 to your friends? Why or why not?

No.

Amazing!

I'm not a fan of the concise commentary just be cause it's so overly concise, but this is so well done.
Very well narrated.
Very well formatted: each chapter has it's own track. The audible player needs help, but whoever did this had an attention for detail and every track is correct.
I don't think a better job could have been done on this.
It would be nice if Audible had better support for these type of projects.

Thanks!

Has table of contents!

It seems to be updated because my audio book has each book of the bible with it's corresponding chapters; it is very easy to select a specific chapter of the Bible. At the beginning of most chapters it has a chapter outline in audio. The narrator also does a very good job reading this commentary. I am looking forward to purchasing volume 2. The full version of this commentary would also be an interesting listen.

Excellent but Needs a way to search for a Chapter

A valuable book like this illustrates why it would be good to be able to search within the book in the Audible app for example to hear a specific book of the Bible one has to scroll and scroll and scroll….otherwise excellent.

I didn’t like it

I found this book difficult to listen to, though I generally love Bible commentaries and the spoken word. Found the author didn’t go deep into any point, and introduced new terms and new vocabulary in every sentence, very difficult to listen to. Disappointed.
