The Quest for Meekness and Quietness of Spirit

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.

While the world knows Matthew Henry best for his time-enduring Exposition of the Old and New Testaments, the cultivation of personal piety in himself and others was the great business of his practical life; and his treatises on the godly life, while little known today, are among the finest ever written. Rich in and alert to the things of the spirit, they reveal, as so impressively shown in this volume, a spiritual mind of preeminent degree in the full and deliberate worship of God. 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.

"Learn from Me," said the Lord, "for I am meek." Years later, after experiencing many trials and tribulations, Peter said that the meekness and quietness of a soul are two things that are held very precious in the sight of God. But the challenge and the question for us today is this: How can we be meek in a world filled with conflicts, strife, spiritual wars, and especially when we are tempted from inside and outside, and that every day? And does meekness mean we need to be tolerant to each and everyone's opinions and doctrinal views? If there was one thing that marked Puritans in the history of Christianity it was their zeal for sound doctrine that was marvelously combined and adorned with a compelling love towards their fellow brethren, and, in extension, to the whole world. This book captures the Puritan spirit and teachings on meekness that flow from the very heart of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Published in original under the title "A Discourse on Meekness and Quietness of Spirit" (1836, ATS edition). Current edition has been proofread, typeset for eBook readers, and slightly updated for modern readers. About the author: Matthew Henry (1662-1714) was a Welsh Nonconformist minister and author, being most famous for his classic commentary on the whole Bible. He died on June 22, 1714 at Natwich, England.

Jong Hun Joo offers a model of how both solid biblical understanding and effective practice of worship can be realized in churches today by exploring the theology and practice of Matthew Henry (1662-1714). Matthew Henry is one of the most famous biblical commentators in the English-speaking world. However, Henry was also a pastor who was liturgical in negotiating the political and religious landmines of his day. This all but overlooked aspect of Henry's biography and writings is both a window into his life and times and an insightful view into the pastoral dimensions of Christian rituals and practices in the home and church. Joo discerns how Henry understood and practiced English Presbyterian worship as an example of Reformed worship in his context and, further, based on the principles found in Henry's writings and practices, Joo suggests how contemporary churches can appropriately develop and articulate their own worship in their own contexts. In so doing he makes a case for worship renewal.
