Editorial Reviews


"Richard Phillips's Hebrews is faithful to the text, cordially committed to confessional Reformed orthodoxy, and alert to practical implications for the life of the church. Phillips keeps the focus where it is for the writer of Hebrews: on God's 'last days' speaking 'in his Son.' This volume, which can be read with profit by a wide audience, should serve to remedy the relative neglect of this important New Testament book in the proclamation and life of the churches of the Reformation. Along with the other volumes in this series, this commentary should contribute to preaching and teaching that more fully echo the whole counsel of God." --Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

"The first liturgical reform of the Protestant Reformation was the implementation of lectio continua expository preaching in Zurich in 1519. Sequential Bible exposition has been a hallmark of Reformed Protestantism ever since. It is heartening to see the Reformed Expository Commentary series emerging to encourage the continuation of this great heritage of preaching. Richard D. Phillips is among the most gifted young preachers of our day. In his hands, Hebrews receives the kind of careful, scholarly, contemporary, and practical exposition that is so desperately needed today." --Terry Johnson, Pastor, Independent Presbyterian Church, Savannah, Georgia

"Hebrews emphasizes that God still speaks about Christ and his people through his written Word. Phillips's expository addresses ring with that authenticity, whether by way of admonition or assurance." --Hywel Jones, Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California

More About the Author

Rick Phillips was raised in an Army family an grew up on posts around America. After graduating from the University of Michigan, he followed his father and grandfather by serving as a tank officer. While in graduate school in Philadelphia, his mother urged him to start attending church again, so Rick visited nearby Tenth Presbyterian Church. The message he heard that night changed his life, a sermon from the Old Testament book of Hosea about God's redeeming love for sinners through the cross of Jesus Christ. Surrendering his life to the love of Christ, Rick became active in Officer's Christian Fellowship during the years he was teaching leadership at West Point. He began leading a Bible study for students, then was asked to write a daily devotional, and then to preach at Christian meetings. Through these experiences, he and his wife concluded that God was calling Rick into a full-time pulpit ministry, so they left the Army and embarked on fulfilling God's call to the ordained ministry.

Rick tries the write the kind of books that have ministered so powerfully in his own life. Mainly, these are books of biblical exposition. His writing heroes are James M. Boice, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, and similar writers of biblical teaching. Some of his books seek to provide clear biblical teaching to important matters of practical living, such as manhood and relationships. He is grateful to God for the privilege of ministering to so many people through his books, desiring above all that God's Word would be clearly, faithfully, and passionately set forth.

Dr. Phillips serves as senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church in downtown Greenville, SC. Previously, he pastored in Coral Springs, FL and Philadelphia, PA. He usually preaches morning and evening and his sermons can be heard on Sermon Audio and on the church website: www.secondpca.org. (Live services are also available on video.) Rick frequently speaks at conferences on the Bible and theology and is active in overseas missions, especially in East Africa. In addition to his ministry duties, Rick likes to spend time with his wife and five children. He is a loyal follower of his alma mater, the Michigan Wolverines, and is an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox.

This commentary is without a doubt clear, concise, and "user-friendly". I learned so much by using this commentary to supplement my recent study of Hebrews. Dr. Philip's applies theology to the average person in the pew in such a way, that you want to devour the commentary rather than being overwhelmed by it. Thank you Dr. Philip's for a much need exposition of Hebrews. I would recommend this commentary to anyone who truly wants to not only study the book, but also to profit and grow in Christlikeness as a result of their study.

The Reformed Expository Commentary is a series that aims to provide a fresh exposition of the Biblical text for today's generation. In the series introduction the series editors (Phil Ryken & Richard Phillips) lay out the four fundamental commitments in this series. They are:

1) To be biblical - that is to pay careful attention to the text and exposit the Scriptures. There is less focus on the original language and structure and more focus on the story that the passage is telling.

2) Unashamedly Doctrinal - this series approaches the text from a Reformed perspective, as found in the Bible.

3) Redemptive-Historical - this means that they believe in the unity and continuity of the Bible, and interpret it in a Christ centered approach for all of Scripture.

4) Practical - by applying the truths found in the Scriptures to contemporary challenges in life.

Now on to aesthetics. This Commentary looks great. While this isn't a huge selling point, and certainly not a reason to chose one commentary over another, I must say that this one looks really nice on the bookshelf, especially when you have more than one in the series.

Richard Phillips is the contributor for the volume on Hebrews and he has done an outstanding job. His exposition is very readable for pastor and layman alike. This commentary, just like others in the series, reads like a book. I found that it flowed together nicely and thus would make a wonderful devotional read. Phillips has a way of making sense of difficult passages of scripture and making them easy to understand for his reader. This truth is clearly seen throughout this commentary. I want to focus on Hebrews 6:4-8 because this is one of the most difficult passages in all of Scripture.

'In contrast, God's revelation in Christ is not partial or incomplete.' p 13

Richard Phillips counters the push for 'critical thought' made so common by liberal theologians of a century ago in rejecting the doctrine of revelation. Retaining the whole counsel of God, Phillips makes his point of departure the sound exegesis of the deity of Christ - faithful to inerrant inspiration and committed to the cause of wholesome declaration. 'The author describes former revelation as 'coming at many times and in many ways'. These opening verses tell us not merely that God has spoken, but that His final and definitive revelation is in and through His Son.' p 13

'The perfect identification of Christ with God, therefore, is necessary to the belief that the Son has brought the highest and final revelation and raised the covenant-intercourse to a point beyond which it cannot be perfected.' Geerhardus Vos, Redemptive History & Biblical Interpretation ed. Richard Gaffin Jr p 189

We NT believers are all subjected to one very present, tangible reality; one standard - the divinely inspired Bible. Believers, even indwelt by the Holy Spirit, do not have the final authority as Christ's representative body on earth. Christ, Hebrews teaches, embodies the authority of God (2:8). He is, however, seated and at times standing at the right hand of the Father. The Christ of the covenants is the end/goal of the promises, prophets and the law. 'Jeremiah 31 shows that a new covenant will come to bring that to pass; the writer of Hebrews points out that this proves the deficiency of the old covenant.

Just to be clear, this is an expository commentary and NOT a detailed technical book. We're clear? Good.

This was not my go-to commentary as I preached through Hebrews, Phillip Edgcumbe Hughes' work holds that place still. At the same time, this was a very helpful volume to read as the sermon was jelling in my mind. It was good to hear the thoughts of another preacher and how someone else handled the text before me.

Theologically, I'm a Reformed Baptist. Covenant theology all the way down the line except the inference that leads to infant baptism. I am covenantal in my thinking. Having said that, it was some of the Reformed part of this commentary that, for me, got in the way. Within Reformed circles, we kind of expect certain topics to be covered when certain texts are touched. I'm not sure those topics are really relevant today as they were in the 1980s and 90s and yet we still seem to have to cover them as a shibboleth to prove our Reformed creds and Phillips does that. It isn't wrong or but, but for me it just isn't very helpful.

A recommended help in sermon preparation nonetheless!
