Item description for Hebrews (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching) by Thomas G. Long...
Overview Saturated with references to the Old Testament and Christian reinterpretations of important symbols and imagery, the Book of Hebrews can be read as an early church sermon against discouragement and lack of faith. So what better commentator than the celebrated professor of homiletics at Princeton Seminary?
Hebrews is a sermon from the early Christian church that addresses a real, urgent, and still relevant pastoral problem: a struggling congregation that may not keep the faith. Thomas Long shows how Hebrews exhorts the church to face its challenges and hold true, even into the twenty-first century.
Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hebrews (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching)?
A Pastors review May 9, 2006
Thomas Long, whom I believe is a professor of preaching, did a wonderful job of clearly communicating the message of a difficult and complex book of the Bible. I found his book on Hebrews helpful in teaching Hebrews to lay persons. I only wish his approach and methods were used in all the other books of this interpretation series.
A Commentary for Preaching and Teaching! Feb 12, 2003
Start with the text, then move to a standard, scholarly commentary like that of Koester (Anchor) or Lane (Word) but DO NOT start to write your sermon or Bible Class lesson until you have read Long's treatment of the text! He takes the heart of the message and puts it into words that will preach! His structural outline of 7:1 - 10:39 (page 82) ALONE is worth the price of the commentary. I can't imagine how many hours of preparation time Dr. Long saved me by helping me see this structural framework for the Preacher's Christology.
What a commentary should be Mar 9, 2000
Dr. Long's commentary is what has been missing on this marvelous book of the New Testament. It is the most helpful tool for the preacher and teacher on this difficult book of the Bible.
