Logos is pleased to offer the Gould edition of John Owen’s Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews—one of the richest commentaries ever written on the book of Hebrews. This massive 7-volume commentary includes two volumes—nearly 1,000 pages—of introductory essays on historical and theological topics relating to Hebrews, along with five volumes of meticulous exposition and commentary.

Owen’s work on Hebrews is partly critical—with comments on the text and language—and partly doctrinal, containing ample discussion of theology and doctrine. His commentary weaves together Old Testament themes of law and covenant with a New Testament definition of Christ’s priestly function and God’s new covenant of grace. Most importantly, Owen’s emphasis on holiness makes An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews eminently useful for practical Christian study and reflection.

This vast work—almost 4,000 pages and over two million words—reflects Owen’s careful inquiry and stunning mastery of the text, and vindicates Owen’s own claim that “this epistle is as useful to the church as the sun is to the world.” An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews is the result of earnest investigation and deep exploration of the theological topics in the book of Hebrews. In fact, Owen’s theology—here and elsewhere—remains so biblically rooted, and his exegesis and exposition so practically theological, that where one ends and the other begins is not plainly evident.

With the Logos edition of Owen’s Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews, all Scripture references are linked to the Greek and Hebrew texts in your digital library, along with your English translations. What’s more, with your digital library, you can read Owen’s commentary alongside other prominent Puritan theologians—or alongside your other commentaries on the book of Hebrews.

This greatest work of John Owen is a work of gigantic strength as well as gigantic size; and he who has mastered it is very little short…of being an erudite and accomplished theologian.

—Thomas Chalmers

[Owen is] not only the greatest theologian of the English Puritan movement but also one of the greatest European Reformed theologians of his day, and quite possibly possessed the finest theological mind that England ever produced.

—Carl Trueman, Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals

...the greatest systematic thinker in the Puritan theological tradition.

—I. Breward, New Dictionary of Theology

For solidity, profundity, massiveness and majesty in exhibiting from Scripture God’s ways with sinful mankind there is no one to touch him.

—J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver

...the greatest theologian who has ever written in the English language.

—Roger Nicole

To have known the pastoral ministry of John Owen . . .(albeit in written form) has been a rich privilege; to have known Owen’s God an even greater one.

—Sinclair Ferguson

In all our life and ministry, as we care for people and contend for the faith, we can learn much from Owen’s pursuit of holiness in private and public. . . .I thank God for John Owen’s unwavering passion for communion with God. We are debtors to his mighty pen and to the passion for God’s glory. . .that drove it.

John Owen was born at Stadhampton, Oxfordshire in 1616. He entered Queen's College, Oxford, at the age of twelve and completed his M.A. in classics and theology in 1635 at the age of nineteen. He was ordained shortly thereafter and left the university to be a chaplain to the family of a noble lord. His first parish, in 1637, was at Fordham in Essex, to which he went while England was involved in civil war. It was here that he became convinced that the Congregational way was the scriptural form of church government. In the 1640s he became chaplain to Oliver Cromwell, the new "Protector of England," and traveled with him on his expeditions to Ireland and Scotland. Between 1651 and 1660, he played a prominent part in the religious, political, and academic life of the nation. In 1651 he was appointed dean of Christ Church and in 1652 made Vice-Chancellor of Oxford—positions which allowed him to train ministers for the Cromwellian state church. He lost his position in 1660, however, when the restoration of the monarchy began after the death of Cromwell in 1658. Owen moved to London and led the Puritans through the bitter years of religious and political persecution—experiences which shaped his theological inquiry, pastoral reflection, and preaching. He later declined not only invitations to the ministry in Boston in 1663, but also an offer to become president of Harvard in 1670. He died in August, 1683.

    Right after the Revelation of John, the Letter to the Hebrews is the most complicated and intellectually demanding letter in the New Testament. It can only be understood in part without extensive knowledge of Jewish history. At around 4,000 pages, John Owen has written what is possibly the most comprehensive commentary on a biblical text ever, and he does not avoid any sentence or controversial topic. Where other commentaries remain vague or ignore passages altogether, Owen still delivers three pages. Admittedly, this prolixity can be tiring and it is therefore not my first commentary when it comes to Hebrews. But owning it means for me that I will always find some clever thoughts or an explanation in a pinch.
