James Haldane (1768-1851) was a Scottish Independent preacher who had great influence through his lectures and writings. His work on the atonement (available here) was, at the time it was written, said to be one of the best treatments of the topic ever written (see footnote in this module at Hebrews 2:9).
About the Module:
This module is the result of about 30 hours' dedicated work in OCR work, proofreading, locating extra copies of the book to correct bad and/or missing pages, verifying references and improving the formatting.
In the lives of Robert and James A. Haldane it is mentioned (p. 636 of Sixth Edition) that shortly before the death of the latter, in Feb., 1851, he had in his public ministrations completed an “Exposition of the Hebrews,” which had long occupied his attention. It is added, that his correspondence shows how much his mind was interested in the work, and how clear and acute were his perceptions of its difficulties. Every posthumous work must appear at a disadvantage, and more especially when not finally completed, although obviously intended for the press. It was for some years doubted whether it would be desirable to publish it under these circumstances. But, on the whole, it is felt that it would be wrong to throw away what in his last years had cost so much thought and pleasant labor.
It is, therefore, printed, not as a finished Exposition, but as "Notes intended for an Exposition;” and it is humbly committed to the blessing of Him whom it was the author’s privilege for so many years to serve in the Gospel of His Beloved Son Jesus Christ.
