"Hebrews" Dr. Lane says, "is a sermon in actual life." It is, at the same time, "a sermon reduced to writing." Acknowledging that the jury is still out on such basic matters as who wrote the Book of Hebrews and for whom it was written, William Lane humbly but forcefully sets his ideas alongside those of other writers and scholars. This commentary is a nice combination of technical comment and thoughtful theology. William Lane was professor of Religious Studies at Western Kentucky University for fifteen years, previously teaching at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He is now a professor and Dean of the School of Religion at Seattle Pacific University. He earned degrees from Gordon Divinity School, Westminster Theological Seminary and Harvard University.

This is the second volume of Lane's tremendous work on Hebrews. If the work of Attridge (1989, Hermeneia), was ground breaking, Lane's work is earth shattering! The best detailed and technical work available, yet it is quite lucid for the informed layperson. If you know the Greek alphabet and can use an interlinear, you can use this work with great benefit. It is a goldmine for Greek students, pastors and teachers.
