The letter to the Hebrews is a challenging document for our multi-faith age with its stress on the uniqueness of Jesus Christ in his person and work. In its call to come to Jesus ‘outside the camp’ it reminds us of the need for sacrifice in the Christian church.
Yet it is full of the assurance of hope in Christ. In its context and in its relevance for today Hebrews brings a special word to all who are in danger of losing heart or choosing the easy way in life. This book comes with a spiritual health warning!
Philip Hacking is a retired Anglican minister, vicar of Christ Church Fulwood, Sheffield, for almost thirty years and rector of St Thomas’s Edinburgh for the previous ten years. He is former chairman of the Keswick Convention, of Word Alive (Spring Harvest) and of Reform (action group within the Church of England). He is married to Margaret with two children and five grandchildren. In retirement, he has a wide itinerant preaching ministry and is an occasional author.
‘In Opening up Hebrews, Philip Hacking outlines its meaning clearly and helpfully and relates its message to many issues that face us. His lengthy pastoral experience is invaluable in capturing and communicating this important aspect of a much-neglected book and therefore makes it accessible to those who are keen to understand but daunted by the obvious difficulties in getting to grips with the text.’
—Michael Plant, General Secretary of the Evangelical Fellowship of Congregational Churches
