Item description for Hebrews: A Call to Commitment by William L. Lane...
By surpassing most traditional commentaries, Lane's work unveils Hebrews as a sermon rendered by a concerned "preacher" to his Roman church, which is under persecution and dangerously close to rejecting the faith. As an exposition of encouragement and exhortation, Hebrews addresses the central concerns of our contemporary church as well: the felt absence of God, a climate of uncertainty and insecurity, the tension between secular conformity and spiritual maturity and the treat of societal perversion and materialism to a Christian commitment. Christians are called upon to express a faith that is rooted in the future and to continue this life of pilgrimage with a radical new view of reality, which is based on sure confidence in the intervention of God in daily life. Tracing the writer's development thought by thought, rather than verse by verse, careful attention is paid to the cultural and historical background. This work is useful as a study guide for groups and individuals, or for any reader who wishes a mature understanding of the book of Hebrews.

Accessible and Reliable Jan 10, 2007
This is a shorter version of the author's exhaustive and widely-praised commentary on Hebrews. It is more readable and omits some of the technical exegesis. It is orthodox, careful and insightful. If you only buy one commentary on Hebrews this should be it (unless you buy Lane's longer commentary!) I have studied Hebrews several times over the years and hold a Masters of Divinity, but this commentary taught me some things I didn't know.
