The Letter to the Hebrews by Peter T. O'Brien

In this carefully crafted commentary Peter O'Brien distinctively harvests the results of recent scholarship on the letter to the Hebrews, especially in relation to the genre of the document and the flow of its discourse. O'Brien views this letter as a "word of exhortation" — a homily or sermon that skillfully interweaves exposition and exhortation, encouraging faithful perseverance in the light of the superlative final word that God has spoken in Christ.

Reflecting the PNTC series as a whole, O'Brien's volume on Hebrews is neither unduly technical nor unhelpfully brief — purposely a middle-range commentary. Its careful exegesis and exposition and its theological richness and warm devotion will fruitfully serve pastors, teachers, and students everywhere.
