“Few studies can be more profitable to Christians today than that of the Epistle to the Hebrews,” says Richard Phillips. “Written . . . to a group of Jewish Christians facing persecution in the mid-first century A.D., the words of this book speak to Christians everywhere about standing firm in Jesus Christ.”
Hebrews captures the challenges and pitfalls of people throughout the ages and shows both why and how to press on in the faith. Its message of warning and hope centers on the surpassing supremacy of Jesus, seen often from the vantage point of the Old Testament.
In keeping with the Reformed Expository Commentary series, this treatment of Hebrews is accessible to both pastors and lay teachers. Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to the biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.

This book is very clear and informative. The format is similar to the commentaries of James Boyce and I recommend it as a great walk through Hebrews. I am not the brightest guy in the world and there are passages in Hebrews where after reading I ask myself, "What did I just read mean?" This book takes care of that.
