Hebrews: A Guide
Lincoln, Andrew

New York: T&T Clark, 2006 pp. x + 129. $24.95


Description: Hebrews: A Guide sheds light on an important, but often overlooked, New Testament book. In this highly accessible introductory guide, Lincoln aims to provide a broad appreciation of the setting, background, argument, and overall thought of Hebrews. Lincoln argues that the controversy surrounding Hebrews, and the question of whether or not one should consider it an apostolical text, has resulted in its being the object of relative neglect in biblical scholarship. He maintains that if the reader puts the issue of authorship to one side, they will find that its writer is not only the most elegant stylist among the New Testament writers but also a first-class theologian and pastor in his own right, whose message continues to speak effectively to Christians today.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Hebrews and Catholic Epistles, Hebrews, Literature
