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.
