David Allen on Hebrews 6:1-8

David Allen, Dean of the School of Theology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, contributed to SBC Today a 10-part series on interpreting and preaching Hebrews 6:1-8.

You can access all parts of the series. Dr Allen argues that the highly disputed passage (Heb 6:1-8) is not about salvation or damnation but rather the gain or loss of rewards

I remain unconvinced by his arguments, but it’s helpful to see a defender of this view. Allen’s interpretation of this tough text is also thoroughly explicated in his commentary on Hebrews in the NAC series. If you’ve never read arguments for the Loss of Rewards view of Hebrews 6:1-8, David Allen writes clearly as an advocate for it.
