The book of Hebrews is a fascinating extended sermon that has guided and nurtured the church through many significant controversies throughout its history not only as a solution to a problem but also as a problem that still seeks a solution. The counsel to hold fast to the confession we received and the willingness to move forward onto that which we have not received is as relevant today as it was nearly two-thousand years ago. Noted theologian D. Stephen Long explores this captivating book and its invitation into a robust world beyond the assumption of today's scientific worldviews. Integrating doctrine, ethics, and politics, Hebrews aids the faithful of all generations to negotiate through troubled times.
The volumes in Belief: A Theological Commentary on the Bible from Westminster John Knox Press offer a fresh and invigorating approach to all the books of the Bible.

This series is an invaluable resource for those who want to probe beyond the backgrounds and words of biblical texts to their deep theological meanings for the church today.
