The book of Hebrews is not a particularly easy book to deal with whether you are preaching through it or leading Bible studies on it. I am preaching through it at the moment for my evening sermon series at the church I pastor. This is with a view to over-viewing parts of it as a guest speaker at a 'Keswick at home' event at another church later in the summer. So I'm using quite a few commentaries at the moment in my sermon preparation. I've always found Raymond Brown particularly useful ever since using him when studying Deuteronomy (I personally think his commentary on Deuteronomy is one of the best around, see my review here on Amazon). That said, this does not disappoint as Brown deals with the text in a more than adequate way and any translation difficulties that may arise, all the time keeping the focus on the themes that emerged in the narrative of the book. These he often highlights and then spend some time focusing on. This makes it a very useful commentary, readable without being over technical and well up to the standard of the 'Bible speaks today series.'

I found this a helpful guide in preparing studies in Genesis. I didn't agree with all the things said, especially in the first 3 chapters, but alongside other commentaries it was useful and very readable.

It did not appear an academic book and was very "readable". It dealt with how the bible deals with creation and its affect on human nature today
