Matthew Henry (18 October 1662 – 22 June 1714) was an English commentator on the Bible and Presbyterian minister. Henry’s reputation rests upon his renowned commentary, An Exposition of the Old and New Testaments (1708-10, known also as Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible). He lived to complete it only as far as to the end of the Acts, but after his death other like-minded authors prepared the remainder from Henry's manuscripts.
Dr. John Owen (1616-1683) was an English Nonconformist church leader, theologian, and academic administrator at the University of Oxford. His works are some of the greatest polemics against Arminianism, wonderful writings for the glory of God, and some of the best treatises ever penned for the good of the church – written by (arguably) the greatest thinking English Puritan Theologian that ever lived.
Thomas Goodwin (Rollesby, Norfolk, 5 October 1600 – 23 February 1680), known as 'the Elder', was an English Puritan theologian and preacher, and an important leader of religious Independents. He was also a commissioner for the inventory of the Westminster Assembly, 1650, and for the approbation of preachers, 1653, and together with John Owen drew up an amended Westminster Confession in 1658. From 1660 until his death, he lived in London, in the parish of St Bartholomew-the-Great.
Charles Haddon (CH) Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher. Spurgeon remains highly influential among Christians of various denominations, among whom he is known as the "Prince of Preachers". He was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition. Spurgeon produced powerful sermons of penetrating thought and precise exposition. Many Christians have discovered Spurgeon's messages to be among the best in Christian literature.
