The author of the Epistle to the Hebrews is well-versed in Old Testament imagery and teaching, arguing conclusively that Jesus is superior to angels, to Moses, to the priesthood of Aaron, and to the old covenant. If you want to hit the high points of Christ's accomplishments, there's no better place to turn. 288 pages, softcover. B&H.
Exalting Jesus in Hebrews is part of the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series. Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series, projected to be 48 volumes, takes a Christ-centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible. Rather than a verse-by-verse approach, the authors have crafted chapters that explain and apply key passages in their assigned Bible books.
Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition presented as sermons and divided into chapters that conclude with a "Reflect & Discuss" section, making this series ideal for small group study, personal devotion, and even sermon preparation. Its not academic but rather presents an easy reading, practical and friendly commentary.
The author of Exalting Jesus in Hebrews is Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr. serves as president and the Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author of several books, including Culture Shift: Engaging Current Issues with Timeless Truth, He Is Not Silent: Preaching in a Postmodern World, The Conviction to Lead: 25 Principles for Leadership that Matters, and We Cannot Be Silent: Speaking Truth to a Culture Redefining Sex, Marriage, and the Very Meaning of Right and Wrong. He is married to Mary, and they have two children, Katie and Christopher.
It's one thing to know Bible stories; it's another to know the story of the Bible. It's one thing to be aware of the story's many heroes; it's another to have met the Hero himself. From the Old Testament that anticipates him, to the Gospels that manifest him, to the Book of Acts that proclaims him, to the Epistles that explain him, and to the Book of Revelation that tells of him coming again, your Bible is about Jesus. That's why I love the vision of the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series. It models for preachers and teachers how to proclaimwith pastoral focus and exegetical carethe beauty of the gospel from every page of Scripture.

Albert Mohler is to be commended for providing readers with a theologicallyâ· â·focused, exegeticallyâ· â·faithful, and Christ-honoring exposition the â·bâ·ook of Hebrews. This insightful and impressive commentary on one of the most challenging books in the New Testament simultaneously points readers to the incomparable superiority of Christ while wrestling with the historical meaning and contemporary significance of the books structure, as well as the serious warning passages scattered throughout the epistle. In doing so, Mohler has given us more than a cogent and clearlyâ· â·written theological commentary for preachers and teachersâ·;â· he has also provided his readers with an immensely helpful, warm-hearted resource for all who wish to understand the truth of Godâ·â·s Word. It is a joy to recommend this marvelous book for pastors, church leaders, and students alike.

When Dr. Al Mohler is involved I always have a difficult time knowing whether I had rather read his philosophy and world view insights or to peruse his keen exposition of Scripture. This volume on Hebrews may solve the equation. Polymath extraordinaire, Mohler mixes that intellectual attainment with a tender heart for Gods word and a love for the auditor in a rare style of commentary for preaching to the man on the street. A man who plans to preach the Bible cannot afford to miss this commentary on Hebrews.
