The Perfect Saviour
Full Product Description
The motivation for this volume is the desire to bridge the gap between the work of evangelical scholars in universities and colleges and the world of the busy preacher and Bible teacher. Specifically, it offers a theological introduction to the New Testament book of Hebrews, by way of a set of expositions of some significant themes and difficult questions, by some well-known scholars.
Topics covered are:
- the new covenant (Peter O'Brien)
- the word of God (Jonathan Griffiths)
- the priesthood of Christ (Richard Gaffin, Jr)
- the tabernacle (David Gooding)
- warning and assurance (Thomas Schreiner)
- access and arrival (Peter Walker)
- perfection (David Peterson)
- suffering (Bruce Winter)
These studies are accessible to all serious students of the Bible. The contributors share the conviction that theological research is ultimately only valuable insofar as it aids the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Perfect Saviour by Jonathan Griffiths (Ed) was published by IVP in June 2012 and is our 42485th best seller. The ISBN for The Perfect Saviour is 9781844745838.

The Perfect SaviourTim Goodall, via The Good Book Stall
This volume of eight essays on themes in the book of Hebrews is brought together with the express intent of making valuable New Testament scholarship accessible to the preacher and pastor who might not otherwise readily find useful and needed comment and research on a variety of key issues in the church today. This introduction to Hebrews covers the new covenant; the word of God; suffering; the tabernacle; perfection; access and arrival; Christ's priesthood; and warning and assurance. On the whole, the collection is indeed accessible, with some essays more so than others. But with a bit of time and careful thought, all are invaluable to the pastor and preacher attempting to understand the book of Hebrews for teaching and discipleship purposes. Of significant value are the essays on warning and assurance by Schreiner, Winter’s essay on suffering, and the slightly more academic essay on perfection from Peterson, all of which tackle relevant topics for Christian life in twenty-first century Western culture. This is a valuable book which deserves high readership among pastors and lay alike – thoroughly recommended.
