Item description for Hebrews: Contemporary Methods, New Insights (Biblical Interpretation Series) by Gabriella Gelardini...
The present volume contains a collection of fourteen essays applying the latest and neglected methods and offering new and innovative insights into the interpretation of the New Testament book "To the Hebrews," The excitingly diverse contributions, which stem from an intriguing international group of senior and younger Hebrews, New Testament, and Old Testament scholars, are presented in three parts: "Part One" focuses on cultic language, concepts, and practice in Hebrews; "Part Two" on sociology, ethics, and rhetoric in Hebrews; and "Part Three" on textual-historical, comparative, and intertextual approaches to Hebrews. As the first ever compilation of essays on Hebrews by a range of authors, this volume presents an important contribution to the field of New Testament studies. It will particularly appeal to students, teachers, and scholars interested in a variety of critical perspectives on Hebrews and on the New Testament's third great theologian next to Paul and John. Moreover, the treatment of hermeneutical, cultic, sociological, and comparative matters in the context of biblical, Greco-Roman, and rabbinic literature will make this collection valuable to an even broader readership.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hebrews: Contemporary Methods, New Insights (Biblical Interpretation Series)?
Probably great for scholars. Nov 11, 2006
I was studying Hebrews a while back, and I was interested in reading other books on it. This was the first book I grabbed on the subject from the school library. While in parts it was fascinating, it was really over my head most of the time.
If you're already familiar with some of the issues surrounding Hebrews, this would be a great book for you. I was not, and I found myself pretty confused. The parts I did understand were enlightening and interesting.
