"Richard Phillips's Hebrews is faithful to the text, cordially committed to confessional Reformed orthodoxy, and alert to practical implications for the life of the church. Phillips keeps the focus where it is for the writer of Hebrews: on God's 'last days' speaking 'in his Son.' This volume, which can be read with profit by a wide audience, should serve to remedy the relative neglect of this important New Testament book in the proclamation and life of the churches of the Reformation. Along with the other volumes in this series, this commentary should contribute to preaching and teaching that more fully echo the whole counsel of God." --Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
"The first liturgical reform of the Protestant Reformation was the implementation of lectio continua expository preaching in Zurich in 1519. Sequential Bible exposition has been a hallmark of Reformed Protestantism ever since. It is heartening to see the Reformed Expository Commentary series emerging to encourage the continuation of this great heritage of preaching. Richard D. Phillips is among the most gifted young preachers of our day. In his hands, Hebrews receives the kind of careful, scholarly, contemporary, and practical exposition that is so desperately needed today." --Terry Johnson, Pastor, Independent Presbyterian Church, Savannah, Georgia
"Hebrews emphasizes that God still speaks about Christ and his people through his written Word. Phillips's expository addresses ring with that authenticity, whether by way of admonition or assurance." --Hywel Jones, Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California

This was not my go-to commentary as I preached through Hebrews, Phillip Edgcumbe Hughes' work holds that place still. At the same time, this was a very helpful volume to read as the sermon was jelling in my mind. It was good to hear the thoughts of another preacher and how someone else handled the text before me.
Theologically, I'm a Reformed Baptist. Covenant theology all the way down the line except the inference that leads to infant baptism. I am covenantal in my thinking. Having said that, it was some of the Reformed part of this commentary that, for me, got in the way. Within Reformed circles, we kind of expect certain topics to be covered when certain texts are touched. I'm not sure those topics are really relevant today as they were in the 1980s and 90s and yet we still seem to have to cover them as a shibboleth to prove our Reformed creds and Phillips does that. It isn't wrong or but, but for me it just isn't very helpful.
A recommended help in sermon preparation nonetheless!
Dr. Phillips organizes his thoughts under clear headings. Often stating the phrase, "the point is," he gives clarity of thought to each segment. This helped me emphasize the point and avoid theological rabbit trails. Also, Phillips' use of Greek was helpful and accessible. It always improved my understanding rather than muddy the waters. Some have hastened to mention that this volume is not a critical commentary - this is true. But much of what I read by John Owen, F.F. Bruce, and Phillip Hughes had to be significantly broken down for my audience. I heartily recommend this volume for anyone who is ploughing through the majestic book of Hebrews and expositing it for God's people. You won't be disappointed.
