A "bridge" commentary delivering the best insights of contemporary scholarship in understandable, non-technical language. Intended for preachers, university and seminary students and adult Bible class teachers, HEBREWS: ANCIENT ENCOURAGEMENT FOR BELIEVERS TODAY is a "bridge" commentary delivering the best insights of contemporary scholarship in understandable, non-technical language. Edward William Fudge shows that the author of Hebrews used four Psalms as a framework to re-tell the story of Jesus to a disheartened audience that was tempted to walk away. The same structure and intense focus on Jesus permeates and empowers this narrative commentary, bringing fresh encouragement to believers today. An international array of transdenominational Bible scholars and church leaders commend the meticulous scholarship and sound exposition in this commentary, and note its clarity and simplicity, its wise application and elegant prose. Reviewers call it "brilliant" and "a momentous accomplishment." One homiletics professor labels it "essential;" another calls it a mandatory asset.
