Hebrews Pillar New Testament Commentary
By: Peter O’Brien
Released March 1, 2010
The newest volume of the Pillar New Testament Commentary Series just arrived this afternoon. It is Peter O’Brien’s commentary on the book of Hebrews. Come check it out on our new titles table!
In this carefully crafted commentary, Peter O’Brien uses discourse analysis to show how the letter to the Hebrews is put together. He reveals what it would have meant for its first hearers and what it means for readers today. O’Brien views the epistle as a “word of exhortation” — a homily or sermon that skillfully interweaves exposition and exhortation, encouraging faithful perseverance in the light of the superlative final word God has spoken in Christ.
“It would be difficult to find a more helpful guide than Peter O’Brien or a guide better endowed with his combination of competence and genial wisdom.” D. A. Carson (from the preface)
