Product Description

Review

Novum Testamentum "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."

Format: Hardcover
The author has provided the reader with information and insight into the text of Hebrews. The scholar looking for supportive references has a well documented book. But the average, non-scholarly reader will find that Bruce's text can deliver important insights into the epistle. I have been using it, along with Barclay and others, to teach a Sunday School class. This mix of sources helps to take the academic edge off Bruce while relying on his depth and knowledge to go beyond the more popular works. This work is best considered as a treatise that is recommended for laity who want a source that is high quality without being so difficult and obtuse as to be unuseable.

Having read the original edition of Bruce's commentary on the Book of Acts, I expected much more information on the Greek text than this book actually contains. In fact, in this commentary, the Greek is relegated to the footnotes. That will no doubt be viewed as an advantage by many readers, and in determining an appropriate star rating, it is helpful to identify the target audience that the writer had in mind.

Those who want a detailed consideration of the Greek text of the letter to the Hebrews would be advised to turn to the commentaries by William L Lane and H W Attridge (on both of which I have written reviews).

Those who prefer not to tackle the Greek text are likely to find that this volume by F F Bruce suits their needs ideally. It is a solidly reliable commentary that covers all the issues such as authorship, people addressed, destination of the letter, date, canonicity, etc.

It is also an excellent commentary on the message of most of the text of Hebrews, occasionally going into slightly less detail than I would have liked. However, for those wishing to make a study of the letter to the Hebrews, Bruce's easily-followed style is a pleasure to read. I can appreciate that many readers would be pleased to give this book five stars.

Format: Paperback
Recommended to me by one of my lecturers at the college I study with, this is a very useful and accessible commentary. Its strength comes from its readability as the text is very clear and straightforward as well is being very well researched to a high academic standard. There is plenty in the footnotes that engages with the Greek text which is one of the reasons it was recommended to me as I'm doing some intensive study on Hebrews at the moment and being a complete moron when it comes to languages (even my own being dyslexic) this is essential. It is definitely one of the best commentaries I have got on the book of Hebrews due to this academic range and accessibility. Really worth having on your bookshelf if your preaching through the book or leading a series of Bible studies. Its fifth star derives from the fact that this has a good balance between being academic but very readable (not a combination that some writers can manage very easily). This is a combination shouldn't be underrated as even if one is acquainted with theological jargon, this Pastor prefers his theology served up in easy and a palatable style that is easy to digest rather than one that causes theological indigestion (that's really as bad as it sounds)!
