by Daniel J Harrington S.J. PH.D.

Arguably the greatest Christian scrmon ever written, yet one of the more neglected and difficult writings in the New Testament, the Letter to the Hebrews is, writes Daniel Harrington, "a long reflection on Jesus as the definitive means of access to God." which is a sermon in written from, explores the thcological significance of the early Christian confession of faith that "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3). In this survey of recent scholarship about Hebrews published since 1975, the author informs prospective students of resources available to them and what progress has been made in scholarship. As an introduction, the book highlights whorks that illumine the text in its first-century setting--"commentaries, setting, structure, and authorship. Then it discusses Hebrews' use of the Old Testament--"its hermencutical stance and use of biblical figures. Finally, the book treats the theology of Hebrews and some of its major themse. Biblical scholars, theologians, students, and pastors will find this work to be stimulating and enriching on the biblical, theological, and pastoral levels.

Hebrews is my favorite New Testament book. I like the way the author of Hebrews presents the New Testament as a sequel of God's plan of salvation that God Himself started long ago when Adam and Eve sinned. Hebrews views the Old Testament in light of Christ and presents Christ as the fulfillment of Old Testament theology. Mr. Harrignton did a superb job in presenting different views concerning the theology of Hebrews and its usage of Old Testament Scriptures. I highly recommend this book if anyone desires to know Hebrews in a deeper way. This is a must-have book for Bible students. It was well-written and flows very well. I perceived no bias in the presentation of the theology of Hebrews.
The WATSA series editors have done a great job of finding excellent scholars engaged in the NT areas in which they assign them. Professor Daniel Harrington's summary of current scholarship in Hebrews proves to be as helpful as his volume summarizing current scholarship in Mark.
