Who is Matthew Henry?
Reverend Matthew Henry was born in Wales, England in 1662. He is considered to be the most trusted and widely read Bible commentator of the last 300 years. An Evangelical, Henry pastored his church for over 25 years and was praised by many other eminent Christians, namely John Wesley, George Whitefield and Charles Spurgeon to name a few.

Ratings and Reviews
Solid but not perfect yet
I love this app. The ability to make Matthew Henry’s large commentary into an audio format cannot be overstated or under appreciated. I wish more people would read this tome in this easy to reference fashion. That being said the robot lady does call bible verses minutes which can take some getting used to. It also would be nice to have a speed feature that will allow us to speed up the audio based on our preference. I also do not particularly like the feature that while listening to the audio it scrolls down the page and unfortunately moves too fast and therefore you will have to go back and find where the robot lady left off. I wish the reading would sync with the listening, maybe in future versions. No one has undertaken to make an audible of the whole Matthew Henry commentary, some have done the concise version, but for this reason this app is 5 stars, it’s literally one of a kind. Also being able to jump from book to verse and listen isn’t able to be purchased in the marketplace yet either. You can get a live body audio but you won’t know where they are in the reading because they organize by chapters rather then by bible books and verses like his one. Developers I love you, if you can fix those two concerns I would certainly pay more for your efforts! Totally worth it for this great commentator!
Audio Needs Some Work
Everything else is great! I appreciate this resource! However, if you portray this as an audio commentary, that shouldn't be where the quality is lacking. I think most people would be happier even if it were just you reading it than the robotic lady... That was actually a bit frightening when it came on... Scared several people around me. All in all though, thank you for putting this together.
Audio could use improvement
This app is one of the best Matthew Henry commentaries that I have found. I have greatly enjoyed it since the time I bought it. However, when I went to listen to it audibly, it was quite alarming. The robotic lady sounds bored, choppy and careless. With this type of voice reading to you it can begin to become irritating. Over all, aside from the audio, this app is amazing. Thank you for taking the time to create it. :)
