    Hebrews, written by Luke Timothy Johnson and published by Westminster John Knox Press, is one of the most well written modern commentaries on this book of the Bible. 1 & Hebrews is one of the more recent volume of the New Testament Library, a series which is synonymous with critical scholarship, this volume continues this legacy. Johnson is no stranger to studious commentaries series on scripture yet this is his first foray into the Old Testament Library Commentary series.

    Hebrews begins with the typical study into the introductory matters of this book of the Bible, yet while introductions are common; this introduction is atypical of most commentaries. It is not that this work doesnt dive into history and recent scholarship, which Hebrews does a phenomenal job of, rather, it is the thoroughness that Johnson takes with these introductory matters which makes this commentary atypical. In a day where these matters are either glossed over to get to the exegesis of the text or are so cumbersome that they become useless, Johnson has found a good balance in being thorough, communicating depth and attention to recent scholarship, all without losing the forest in the trees. I must readily admit that while Johnson shows the depth of scholarship, some of the conclusions that he draws are more liberal than my taste, due to his adherence to traditional Catholicism, for the most part. Though his mild-Catholic critical approach is refreshing. The previous statement though in no way negates his scholarship or his contributions Old Testament scholarship.

    In reference to the commentary on the text of this book of the Bible, Johnson takes great care in carefully showing the original context of passage while sprinkling practical application to the reader throughout the textual commentary. This book is helpful to any pastor who is looking for a depth that other commentaries do not provide.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from Westminster John Knox Publishing in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

    This review was written for .
    In the latest title from the New Testament Library series (Westminster John Knox), Luke Timothy Johnson, probably the leading Catholic exegete next to Joseph Fitzmyer, largely fills in the gap between his acclaimed 1-2 Timothy and James commentaries in the Anchor Bible series (Doubleday) with an excellent exposition of Hebrews. Johnson is a conservative exegete who premises his argument on the assumption that Hebrews is a letter calling on believers to grow in maturity through perseverance in the midst of suffering after the example of Jesus (http://mysite.verizon.net/vzeojt6o/2006biblesandbiblereference/).
