Overview

The Book of Hebrews holds a unique place in the New Testament. It uses a highly literary vocabulary of ritual and ceremony. Its author is unknown. And it is steeped in references to the Old Testament. Sometimes these differences from the other New Testament epistles make Hebrews difficult for contemporary readers to understand.
Everyone's Guide to Hebrews, written by respected Bible teacher Neil Lightfoot, takes readers through the intricacies of this special book and into the two great themes that govern it: the person of Christ and the work of Christ. The book is ideal for Bible classes, with study questions included at the end of each of the fourteen chapters. It is equally useful for grasping the meaning of the text in personal study, small groups, or sermon preparation.
This popular commentary, or guide, gives readers a close-up look at one of the masterpieces of the Bible and enables them to appreciate its majestic language and style, its bold declarations, its sweeping arguments, and its heartfelt pleas to continue in the faith.
