Well, he had me by page 31. Of course, I want it to be true. A while back ago, I wrote an article about my top three questions I have when I get to heaven. What I only hinted at then is my cockamamie housewife theologian theory. I was too embarrassed. But now, thanks to David Allen, I am going loud and proud.

You see, after teaching Hebrews for the last year (or so), I couldn’t shake the suspicion that we were getting something very similar to the “explanation” Jesus gave to the two disciples on

Who wrote Hebrews? Without being dogmatic, Allen carefully and thoroughly lays out the evidence that points toward the author of Luke-Acts being the author of Hebrews as well.

Allen’s work is the fruition of decades of personal study and the resulting volume is a deftly nuanced appeal to largely compelling evidence.

It is a dissertation. I read this book for our Sunday school class on an intro to Hebrews. Unless you have been to seminary or would like to go pick another book. You will need to have some Greek background, New Testament survey and Hermeneutics to enjoy any of it. If you have this background get the book and start taking notes. Not sure if I come to the same conclusion or not, but he has some great arguments for Luke being the author.
