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 "e;Hebrews"e; 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.
