‘…a work of gigantic strength as well as gigantic size; and he who hath mastered it is very little short, both in respect to the doctrinal and practical of Christianity, of being an erudite and accomplished theologian.’ — THOMAS CHALMERS

Book Description

John Owen here analyses the text of Hebrews with care and provides a judicious interpretation which shows an impressive familiarity with a wide range of biblical scholarship. He also provides rich practical applications.

John Owen (1616-1683) was probably the greatest systematic theologian of the British Puritans, yet such was his depth of Christian wisdom and discernment that he also excelled in pastoral and spiritual theology. Common to his stature in both of these areas was his understanding of Scripture. While this is evident throughout his writings, it is in his massive exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews that the range of his knowledge and the depth of his exegetical powers are most evident. Here he analyses the text with care and provides a judicious interpretation which shows an impressive familiarity with a wide range of biblical scholarship.

In addition, following the classical Puritan method of commentary with its constant concern for Christian living, he provides rich practical applications. Thus in a balanced way, Owen addresses both mind and heart. Written with the reverent spirit of a scholar-pastor whose stated aim in his ministry was ‘to promote holiness’, Owen’s study of Hebrews is one of the great classical commentaries of the Christian Church.

  1. Richard C Ross

    John Owen’s exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews is incomparable. There is no other commentary on a single book of Scripture equivalent to it and emphatically none that surpass it for depth of scholarship, range of research, spiritual perception, literary empathy, sensitivity to the intention of the Holy Spirit or reverent humility before the Word of God. Its superlative qualities make recommendation superfluous.

    My thanks and appreciation for the books I ordered during the recent special offer; the books and packing were of the highest excellence. I first acquired the set of John Owen and John Flavel as a teenager, in the initial reprint by Banner. But circumstances forced me to part with them. I’m deeply grateful that now they are back on my shelves, at a much later stage in my life.

    There surely has never been a body of men since the Apostles who together have felt a greater passion to advance the glory of Christ than the mainstream Puritan preachers. Their company will be invaluable during what I anticipate to be the final stages of my ‘race’.
