For many readers the Epistle to the Hebrews is among the most difficult books of the New Testament. Understanding its message calls for a great familiarity with its Old Testament background and a good knowledge of first-century biblical exegesis. This new, independent paperback edition of F. F. Bruce's long-standing hardcover volume on Hebrews in the New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) series covers both of those fronts. When first published in 1964, Bruce's Hebrews
received critical acclaim, and over the years it has become a classic work of evangelical biblical scholarship. Just before his death in 1990, Bruce completed a full revision of the text, incorporating twenty-five years of further study. Every reader of Hebrews -- whether student or scholar, minister or layperson -- will benefit from the careful exegesis and pastoral wisdom distilled in this volume.
"Solid, sound, and scholarly. Its usefulness to students, pastors, clergy, and scholars will be immense."
The Bible Translator
"The original edition was still arguably the best English commentary on Hebrews for general use. . . .The update of this standard commentary is unreservedly welcomed."
Review and Expositor
"Here is an excellent commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews."
Calvin Theological Journal
"Every preacher and New Testament scholar should have a commentary by F. F. Bruce on Hebrews in his or her library."
