Hebrews: An Anchor for the Soul

Vol. 2

By R. Kent Hughes, Series edited by R. Kent Hughes

The book of Hebrews conveys a double dose of spiritual power. It not only presents the greatness of Christ in ways no other New Testament writing does, but it repeatedly demands a heart response from the reader. No one can study Hebrews and not grow spiritually and come face to face in a new way with Christ.

It is also true that no New Testament book has had more background research than Hebrews, and none has spawned a greater diversity of opinion. However, virtually all agree that the grand theme of this epistle is the supremacy and finality of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Life-changing themes come from God to us in this marvelous epistle. In this follow-up volume, respected pastor and author R. Kent Hughes continues his study of a marvelous Scriptural document. The delights and challenges of personal relationship with Jesus Christ—the perils of apostasy—perseverance in one's walk with God—the true meaning of trust and surrender as seen in God's "Hall of Faith"—the benefits of divine discipline—right and wrong in personal and church life—these and other lofty themes lead to increased commitment to Christ and holier living.

Those who preach, teach, and study the Word of God will find this book a gold mine of helpful discussion on a Bible book easily misunderstood and often overlooked. A practical commentary on an important Bible book, it will help preachers, teachers, and all students of the Word of God experience new levels of spiritual power and effectiveness in ministry. 

Part of the Preaching the Word series.
