From the Inside Flap
An Exposition of Hebrews considers the epistle's purpose, theme, divisions, characteristics, value, and writer. It then delves into each verse and passage, explaining the truths found within and giving valuable insight into how you can apply these truths to life.
This classic volume is the result of twenty years of research by Arthur Pink, who read dozens of commentaries and gave lectures on the Epistle of Hebrews. It is one of Pink's earlier works and originally appeared in his monthly magazine, Studies in the Scriptures. It was previously published in two volumes. It now appears in full, unabridged form in one illuminating volume.
"We have found this to be an excellent work and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand more clearly the Epistle of the Hebrews." -The Banner
Arthur W. Pink, born in Great Britain in 1886, immigrated to the U.S. to study at Moody Bible Institute. He pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina before becoming an itinerant Bible teacher in 1919. He returned to his native land in 1934, taking up residence on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1940 and remaining there until his death twelve years later. Most of his works, which include numerous biblical studies, first appeared as articles in the monthly Studies in the Scriptures, published from 1922 to 1952.

I mainly purchased Pink's commentary because almost without exception, the recently-written commentaries cited his work. I am not seminary-trained; I teach a SS class. This commentary is a great resource for me.
Pink wrote this in the mid-20th century, and of course used the KJV for his work. I don't use the KJV, but I found this didn't hurt the use of Pink's work much at all. There were a few sections that had lost a bit of utility, but for the most part, the commentary was valid for the ESV that I use.
This commentary is not a scholarly work, and there are no uses of greek or hebrew in the text. It is an expository commentary, and this makes it accessible for those without training in biblical languages (such as myself). Where original languages are referenced, they are transliterated.
Pink is not Arminian in his outlook, but unlike some of the older non-Arminian commentaries, he does not follow Calvin or Luther blindly. His work differs from theirs in several places, such as chapter 6. On the whole, the commentary follows the doctrines of grace very well and has no mix of semi-Pelagianism in it.
Pink does not include a bibliography, which helps keep the volume uncluttered. Extensive bibliographies are available in newer commentaries (see Word Biblical Commentary, for example) which are more inclusive due to their recent date of publication. He also does not include chapter notes, but cites his sources by name within the chapters. The book is over 1300 pages, and all of it is expository material, so you won't go wanting in any section of the text.
This is not a stand-alone commentary; you'll want a more contemporary one to go with it (for reasons stated above), but for sheer volume of exposition on a difficult but critically important book of Scripture, this commentary is a must-have for the student or teacher of the Bible. God has blessed the Church with learned men through history, and A. W. Pink is certainly one of them; I recommend this commentary to one and all.
Almost all of this commentary is devoted to the text itself, with very little by way of introduction. Pink is convinced of the Pauline authorship of this book. A more detailed discussion of this issue and a defense of Pink's position would have been helpful. However, this does not detract from the overall value of the commentary itself.
Almost all of Pink's work is a commentary on the text itself. There is only a very short introductory section (approximately ten pages) dealing with the date, the addressees, the author, etc. Pink is convinced of the Pauline authorship of the book, although he does not give an extended defense of this position. Given the controversy over authorship, a more detailed discussion at this point would have been helpful. However, this lack does not detract from the overall value of the text.
Not for the fast reader, but for the one with a keen desire to learn regardless of the time it takes.
You will find yourself going back to this book frequently and using the expressed principles with relation to
many other scriptures and enjoying Mr. Pink's outlines and explanations.
My own hard copy of this fine book took wings/legs years ago and I was positively thrilled to find it available
to Kindle users for a tiny fraction of the original cost.
Definitely recommended for all serious students of the Holy Scriptures.
