I find Vos' writing to be tedious at best, though his insights are certainly orthodox and occasionally profound. But it's a lot of work to find them…
This is a short but rich book on the theology of Hebrews which covers how Hebrews is distinct in the canon, how the author approaches the concept of covenant/testament, revelation, priesthood, and sacrifice. This is a great introduction to the typology and shadow-fulfillment aspects of Hebrews. It is written at a fairly high level theologically with some exegetical aspects to it, but Vos generally makes his points very plainly. Overall this is a very insightful book and at 124 pages is a great i [...]
Tough to evaluate. There is really important Vosian content here that helps unlock the riches of Hebrews and the rest of Scripture. But as seminary lecture notes turned into book chapters, it's not the smoothest or most pleasant reading experience.Probably too difficult a read for laity, and slow-going even for pastors, too.
I love Vos’s thought and doctrine, not always his delivery. I get the sense he would be the brightest professor but not the most captivating teacher. I especially loved his emphasis on the earthly models being copies of the heavenly in Hebrews.
For a relatively small book, this book packs enormous punch! Page-for-page, I think this might be the best book you could read on the Book of Hebrews.
Good, brief work on the major themes and content of the Book of Hebrews.
For such a short commentary, this is rich. Revisiting after failing on the first attempt due to the heavy dose of Greek.
