Originally delivered as a series of sermons at Bednal Green in 1712, this material was so positively received that many of the hearers insisted that it be put into print. This classic treatise has been carefully prepared for the benefit and enjoyment of a new generation of Christian readers. It includes the moving, comprehensive biographical preface written by James Hamilton in 1847.
The electronic edition contains embedded Scripture references in the ESV®; the print edition includes a Scripture index and glossary.
The author here pleads with us to avail ourselves of the "ornament of a meek and quiet spirit," and to apply this precious and comely grace in all our contacts in everyday living. No message could be more practical or fitting for this age, when the world, more than ever, is too much with us.
This is a deep and tender, altogether winsome plea. Would you know the nature, excellence, and application of this meekness and quietness? Come then with the author to Him who said, ". . . learn of me, for I am meek and lowly." And all the world will see and know that we have been with Jesus.
Living and dying, let us be found among the "quiet in the land."
We all wish to see quiet families, and quiet churches, and quiet neighborhoods, and quiet nations; and it will be so if there be quiet hearts; and not otherwise.
The Rev. Matthew Henry is most well-known for the timeless and practical expositions found in his commentaries on the Old and New Testaments. What most people don’t know, however, is that Henry was a model husband and father who believed that a properly organized home life includes as a necessity a strong spiritual foundation.
Henry believed that while the home is not meant to replace the church, it is meant by God to be a place of spiritual growth and renewal. In that vein, A Church in the House is a manual of sorts, showing us that effective ministry inside the home is just as important as ministry done on the outside.

To begin with, the translation beautifully and accurately conveys the word of God in English, using the most recent scholarly resources available and translating directly from the original languages. While the Bible plays a central role in the church's life, it is also important to remember that it is an ancient book written over several centuries. It carries a rich tradition of interpretation over even more centuries.
That is why the many scholars and church teachers who worked years on this project did more than provide a clear and accessible translation; they also sought to provide additional help and guidance for those who truly want to understand what they are reading:Each book of the Bible begins with an introduction, providing the historical context of the work, its literary style, its main themes, its use in the history of the church, as well as an outline of the contents. As you read the Scriptures, notes have beenprovided at the bottom of the page offeringexplanations for particular passages, terms, and concepts. Since Scripture often refers to itself, a system of cross-references are provided so you can see where else historical figures, particular stories, or similar concepts are also treated in the Bible. At the end of the Bible, sixteen pages of color maps are provided to help orient the Bible's stories in their geographical context.
