Matthew Henry - Psalm 24

From an email:

I just read all of Matthew Henry's commentary on Psalm 24. I was surprised. If you read it straight through by the time he gets to the final third of the psalm his take on it is really powerful and transcendent. He has you up at the gates of Heaven. The imagery I had was like an epic fantasy novel. Yet he also gives the interpretation that applies to us, our being, I was impressed. It was the first time I had the patience to read something from him complete. Just judging by the cover, so to speak, you expect him to be more tame and safe and so forth. From this I can now see why some modern Reformed academic theologians are not positive on him. I should say, the modern academic Reformed types who make Calvin look like a bare foot mystic. They're not all like that by any means though.
