Item description for Are You the One Who Was To Come? by Arthur C. Woods...
Overview With scores of commentaries available from every possible theological perspective, is it possible that a pastor from a small town in Pennsylvania, authoring his first book, can have a new and insightful approach to the book of Hebrews? Dr. Woods' commentary supports his conviction that the letter to the Hebrews was written to Jews saved under the old covenant by faith in a coming Messiah. He skillfully demonstrates that the book was written to convince these Old Testament saints to put their faith in Jesus, the Messiah who had come. Using this approach, Dr. Woods clarifies the difficult passages of Hebrews without corrupting the text or manipulating it to conform to one's theological bent. In particular, the passages that are sometimes used to support the possibility of losing one's salvation are carefully examined and their meanings precisely clarified. This book presents new and biblically accurate insights into the overall argument of the letter to the Hebrews that need to be understood by the evangelical community. It is a must read for any student of Hebrews.

Great new contribution to the expositional world May 29, 2003
I've been very happy to see this new view on the book of Hebrews by Dr. Woods. He shows through this book a great deal of thought and clarity. This is not a comprehensive commentary, in the sense that he doesn't interact much with the other commentaries on Hebrews. However, he does a great job of presenting his argument, and showing how it affects the interpretation of Hebrews (especially those infamous "warning passages"). I would recommend this book to anyone willing to meditate on a new view on Hebrews. If you want a more interactive commentary, you might want to look elsewhere. But this commentary must not be overlooked. Happy reading!
