The Voice of Hebrews
February 17, 2015
not what I expected either. I agree with Robert, not a very deep book. If you think it's about Melchizedek, like I did, it's not. It's a brief, high level overview of the entire book of Hebrews. Each chapter from the book of Hebrews is covered by an average of 4 pages. The books subtitle "The Mystery of Melchizedek" is the same name given to chap 7 in the book. All 6 1/2 pages. If you already know Salem means "peace" and Melchizedek means "righteousness", then this book isn't for you.
An unexpected, but unique "take" on Scripture. Not a scholarly interpretation but one from talented poets, musicians and pastors expressing their view of what the author of Hebrews has written. I found it thought provoking and theological correct, e.g., author suggests the Old Testament would be better named First Testament because it is the beginning of Christ's story and is relevant - not outdated or separate.
Our Bible study had studied the book of Hebrews and enteredquite a discussion about Melchizeddek. I saw this bookadvertised this book the next day on e-mail and decided to order it. I thought it was very informative and very well written.
