Item description for Exposition of Hebrews, Vol. 1 of 2 by Arthur W. Pink...
Arthur W. Pink was an exacting person. He was blessed (some say plagued) with a photographic memory. He never forgot what he had read, and upon occasion would prove it by stating the volume and page where he read a certain comment. Because of this, some found him hard to bear, since, if he were challenged, he could quote Scriptures by the hundreds to back up a statement of his. He plainly felt it was better to be right, than to be socially acceptable. Many a roast in the oven was burned to a crisp because Pink would preach 2 hours on a Sunday morning (from 11 a.m to 1 p.m). This is the commentary to own, if you cannot afford Owen. Why? Because Pink was an excellent judge of quality commenting, and he quotes extensively from Owen, Brown, Saphir, Gouge, etc. Along with the excellencies of these expositors, you get Pink's own valuable interpretations. You will find many unique comments in all of Pink's works. Yet he is such a close reasoner, and so adept at marshalling Scripture, that it is difficult to say, 'This time, Mr. Pink, you are wrong.' You will never regret the purchase of this set (3 vols. in 2).

More About Arthur W. Pink
Arthur Walkington Pink was born in Nottingham, England on 1 April 1886 and became a Christian in 1908, at the age of 22. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society (the occult gnostic group which became precursor of the New Age movement, popular in England during that time), and quickly rose in prominence within their ranks. His conversion came from his father's patient admonitions from Scripture. It was the verse, Proverbs 14:12, 'there is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death,' which particularly struck his heart and compelled him to renounce Theosophy and follow Jesus.
Desiring to grow in knowledge of the Bible, Pink emigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute. He left there after only two months and began his first pastorate in Silverton, Colorado. In 1916 he married Vera E. Russell (8 January 1893 – 17 July 1962), who was from Kentucky. However, he left after just two months for Colorado, then California, then Britain. From 1925 to 1928 he served in Australia, including as pastor of two congregations from 1926 to 1928, when he returned to England, and to the United States the following year. He eventually pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina.
In January 1922 he started a monthly magazine entitled Studies in the Scriptures. Its relatively small circulation list of around 1,000 included English-speaking Christians worldwide and became the basis of most of his published books.
In 1934 Pink returned to England, and within a few years turned his Christian service to writing books and pamphlets. Moving to the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1940, Pink died of anemia in Stornoway, Scotland on 15 July 1952.
After Pink's death, his works were republished by a number of publishing houses, among them, Banner of Truth Trust, Baker Book House, Christian Focus Publications, Moody Press, Truth for Today, and reached a much wider audience as a result. Biographer Iain Murray observes of Pink, "the widespread circulation of his writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century." His writing sparked a revival of expository preaching and focused readers' hearts on biblical living. Pink is left out of many biographical dictionaries and overlooked in many religious histories.

Great Book Aug 20, 2007
I started reading Pink about 5 years ago and hav'nt found anything bad yet. I believe his treatment of Hebrews was Exceptional but before you start you may want to finish up any books you have already started. Very indepth!
Hebrews Jul 23, 2007
Just the book I need for a thorough study of Hebrews. Binding and printing great, shipping prompt.
Simple ... the best Mar 14, 2004
This exposition is Arthur Pink at his best. There is no such thing as a bad commentary by Pink. I own 90% of his published writings and in my opinion this is his best work. The Hebrew writer (which Pink makes the best argument I've heard for Paul's authorship) intended for this epistle to show the physical things of the Old Testament as a shadow of the spiritual things in the New Testament. Pink masterfully follows this theme! Mission accomplished! This is definitely written at a college-reading level and a "must read" for every minister who has put his faith in Jesus the Christ.
A must read Feb 18, 2003
This commentary is a must for any serious student of the book of Hebrews. Pink is peerless in his insights and thoroughness.
Pink's Classic Oct 24, 2002
anyone who wants to gain a better grasp of Hebrews would do well to at least leaf through this tome. He well handles the tricky sections like ch's 6 and 10, et al.
