In "The Pleasantness of a Religious Life", Matthew Henry examines the great joys of true Christianity by expounding upon Prov. 3:17, "[Wisdom's] ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace."

Rather than being a bleak and burdensome business, his clear teaching shows how "religion brings both pleasure with it and profit after it," arguing that the difficulties met with on the journey are not comparable to the joyful recompense which our God and King rewards us with along the way and when we finally arrival in his kingdom.

Far from a copy-paste-publish e-book, this edition has been painstakingly edited into an entirely new text which has been gently modernized for today's reader, while still retaining the flavor and character of the original manuscript. To aid the reader, over four hundred ESV Scripture references have been embedded into the text as hyperlinked end-notes--no internet connection is required.

This edition also includes James Hamilton's moving biographical preface.
