The Quest for Meekness and Quietness of Spirit, by Matthew Henry


I am so grateful for this book. Modern authors addressing this topic are necessarily affected--one way or another--by issues of feminism and gender roles. Matthew Henry interprets the admonition of I Peter 3:4 as applying to both sexes, and as a result we get the benefit of a gender-neutral 17th century perspective of meekness and quietness of spirit. I will most definitely be purchasing this book and re-reading it often.
