Editorial Reviews

Craig R. Koester
Probably the single most important contribution of this commentary is to make Hebrews lively and accessible for contemporary readers....[T]hose who want to explore what people today might find interesting and helpful about Hebrews will profit from Long's exposition; for he not only writes about Hebrews, but helps Hebrews to find a voice in the contemporary world.
