From the Publisher
The NIV Application Commentary series is unique. Most commentaries focus on the original meaning of the Bible 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 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.

1. Original Meaning,
2. Bridging Contexts, and last but not least,
3. Contemporary Significance.
A teacher can teach theology but until he/she brings it to everyday application, it is just theory. I try to make this be the focal point of the class. I've had class members tell me that "bringing it home" with a practical application was the best part of the class.
I highly recommend this commentary series and this book on Hebrews.
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.
Highly recommend it!
This commentary uses a somewhat unique presentation as each block of passages are broken into three sections: the "Original Meaning," "Bridging Contexts," and "Contemporary Significance." Personally, and from a scholarly perspective, I found the sections to be most valuable in that order (Original, Bridging, Contemporary) with the contemporary section being geared more toward a general reader with an emphasis on applications.
I would recommend this book and is one I will keep on my reference shelf. The reason that I gave it only 4-stars is based solely on the fact that the author used the NIV translation, otherwise I would have probably given it 5-stars.
