Item description for Commentary-Hebrews (NIV Application Commentary) by George H. Guthrie...

Overview
Hebrews, which is part of the NIV Application Commentary Series, helps readers learn how the message of Hebrews can have the same powerful impact today that it did when the author first wrote it.

Publishers Description
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today. The NIV Application Commentary series helps with both halves of Bible study. It builds a bridge from the past to the world we live in -- explaining not only what the Bible meant, but also how it can speak powerfully today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Hebrews (NIV Application Commentary)?

Outstanding support  Nov 9, 2006
I used this volume for a 13 week Sunday School study of Hebrews, along with multiple other references. This is the one from which I learned the most, and I used it extensively to guide my approach in challenging the class to make life changes with regards to living a life of faith. Easy to read, thorough, and highly practical.
 
Very useful commentary  Aug 14, 2006
I just finished helping to lead my small group through Hebrews during the past year. When preparing lessons, I consistently found this to be the most useful of the commentaries I owned. The author consistently does an excellent job of helping to show the overall structure of the book, and how individual sections support his main goal of encouraging his audience to persevere in their faith. He offered several applications and examples that I found particularly profound and insightful.

This is not a typical commentary in format, and I wouldn't recommend this as a sole text for a study in Hebrews. The format for the series is not well-suited fo the book of Hebrews overall. Guthrie, however, produced an outstanding commentary in spite of this. I would highly recommend using this work alongside a more traditional commentary. It will enrich your study and deepen your appreciation for this magnificant part of the New Testament.
 
WOW!  Dec 16, 2005
I usually don't think of commentaries as an easy read. My understanding and appreciation for the book of Hebrews has definatly changed after reading this commentary. I especially enjoyed the bridging contexts and contemporary significance sections that go along with each chapter. I have a much better appreciation on why it is important to understand the background behind the text before we apply it to our everyday lives. Guthrie does a great job of unpacking this book and explaining it in a way in which you can understand it's significance and apply it to our lives in a way that does not distort the original meaning.

 
Solid Commentary  Nov 28, 2000
I took Dr. Guthrie's Hebrews class at Union. Of course, we used this book. I found it to be quite good. Guthrie is a good scholar, but his passion is not simply the academics of Christianity. He is deeply concerned with the spiritual elements as well. His commentary, as well as his classroom lectures, while including the technical stuff, aims for application. Guthrie is not a dusty theologian; he seeks to engage the reader in the text so that God might speak to them through it.
 
great commentary  Sep 19, 2000
This is a wonderful commentary that contains a great deal of biblical application. I have used it for sermon illustrations, and Guthrie does an excellent job in explaining the text and applying it to today's contemporary world. I have a richer appreciation of Jesus Christ's eternal Melchizedekan priesthood, and I have fallen in love with the rich rhetorical masterpiece that is the epistle to the Hebrews. Guthrie knows what he is talking about grammatically, and he is obviously well read in such Christian heavyweights as C.S. Lewis, Yancey, ten Boom, and Lucado. A sheer delight!!
