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, he 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.
John Owen (1616-1683) was an early Puritan advocate of Congregationalism and Reformed theology. Educated at Queen's College, Oxford, he served under the Puritan government of Oliver Cromwell as personal chaplain to Cromwell and later as vice-chancellor of Oxford. A contemporary of John Bunyan, Owen's extensive body of work includes some twenty-eight books on theological and devotional themes. His later years were spent in pastoral ministry where he served as the leading spokesman for the Protestant Nonconformists.
