Every Christian needs to understand Hebrews. If they do not, they will misunderstand the Old Testament and will also fail to fully appreciate what the Lord Jesus Christ has done, what he is doing now, and what he is going to do in the future. As a result, they will remain spiritually stunted.

Over the years, plenty of books have been written to explain Hebrews, but only a few of them have had ordinary Christians in mind. Some of them are so large and so complicated that they appear to be the last word. Experts enjoy books like these, but everybody else is left bewildered.

This book does not pretend to be ‘the last word’ but perhaps, for some, it will prove useful as ‘the first word’. Stuart Olyott explains Hebrews as clearly as the subject matter allows, keeping in mind the advice of Albert Einstein that ‘things should be as simple as possible, but no simpler’. Crystal clear explanation of the text is followed by detailed practical application. Indeed this book contains many applications, some of which are very direct.

Throughout, the aim of the author is to focus our gaze upon Christ so that we might follow him with renewed courage.

About the Author

Stuart Olyott (b. 1942) became pastor of Belvidere Road Church in Liverpool after training at London Bible College and receiving a BD degree from the University of London. Liverpool pastorates occupied the periods 1967 to 1982 and 1991 to 1999. The intervening years were spent preaching the gospel in French in Lausanne, Switzerland, and pioneering new churches in both France and Switzerland.

Olyott has been awarded a MA from the University of Liverpool, and ThD from Trinity Theological Seminary, Indiana.

Stuart Olyott travels widely, helping and encouraging especially young and inexperienced pastors in the UK and Europe. Now semi-retired he continues his work as Pastoral Director of the Evangelical Movement of Wales. He is also an elder at Christ Church in Deeside, North Wales.

The Trust has published his Ministering like the Master, Reading the Bible and Praying in Public, and his translation of John Calvin’s Truth for All Time.
