42. Sixty Days with John Owen in Hebrews
Do you have an interest in actually reading John Owen but find accessing his works to be a bit daunting, a bit intimidating, a bit overwhelming? Don't know where to start? Don't know if there'll be enough reward for your effort? I am recommending Sixty Days with John Owen in Hebrews edited by Daniel Szczesniak.
What you see is what you get. Sixty devotional entries that cover the entire book of Hebrews verse by verse by verse, all thirteen chapters. John Owen's commentary on Hebrews has been edited down to daily readings. The book of Hebrews itself may seem an intimidating read. But don't worry, somehow, someway these two fit together perfectly. I found it to be an enlightening gem of a read.
I chose to read it not in SIXTY days but in thirteen days. I chose to read all the devotional readings for each chapter of Hebrews. (All of the entries covering Hebrews 1; all of the entries covering Hebrews 2; all the entries covering Hebrews 3; all the entries covering Hebrews 4, etc.) I also chose to read the devotions AFTER daily Bible reading in Hebrews. (I am using the M'Cheyne devotional bible reading plan, so I was already reading Hebrews one chapter per day at this time.)
If you don't typically read devotionals because they are too light, fluffy, lacking nutritional value, not really worth your time, effort, energy...then this is the perfect choice for you. It is MEATY and rewarding.
