Hebrews: A Call to Commitment

By surpassing most traditional commentaries, Lane's work unveils Hebrews as a sermon rendered by a concerned "preacher" to his Roman church, which is under persecution and dangerously close to rejecting the faith. As an exposition of encouragement and exhortation, Hebrews addresses the central concerns of our contemporary church as well: the felt absence of God, a climate ...more

This is a solid study through the book of Hebrews. It does an impressive job of explaining the setting and timeline of the book.

I used this as a guide through our small group's study of Hebrews, however thought it was a bit too heavy to pass out to the class to read along. It is published by Regent College, so it is extremely academic but worth the effort. I mix of this book and some other online resources that I found, in combination, lead to a solid 12-13 week discussion.

Great summary of the book of Hebrews. Doesn’t miss the forest for the trees and vice versa. Interprets Hebrews 6 and 10 from an Arminian perspective, but it doesn’t play an important or extended part in his overall argument. Overall, highly recommended for someone in the pew needing an overview of Hebrews.

A good exposition of a biblical book often neglected by the church today. I believe the Book of Hebrews will become more and more relevant the closer we come to Christ's return. May we stand firm in the faith, despite the coming trials.

This is a good introductory commentary on Hebrews. Nothing flashy but everything you need if you are a lay person.

A solid book on Hebrews. It is very theological and pretty tough to read.

Clear, but excessively repetitive since the text was originally delivered as lectures.

Written in a readable style, with some memorable lines, and a pretty solid commentary. I don't agree with his thoughts on apostasy in the book of Hebrews. But overall, pretty helpful.
