Editorial Reviews

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.

From the Author

George H. Guthrie is associate professor and chair of the Department of Christian Studies at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee

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.

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.

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.

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.

I especially like this commentary on Hebrews because it blends both technical exposition of the text and good ideas on teaching it and helping others with application. I am working through the book as I lead a discussion Bible study on Hebrews. Since the material is Hebrews is weighty Christology, I am grateful for help with discussion questions and application.

Hebrews can be hard to grok; there are so many references and allusions to culture and theology that modern educated people don't recognize, but Guthrie does a good job of bringing them into a spotlight. The book is fairly easy to read, but not quick to read. Each section is divided into different ways of looking at the text: word studies, historical implications, cultural references, modern interpretations, and real-life applications. It has been a real help in my teaching Hebrews in my Bible class this year. It is neither fanciful liberal theology nor blinders-restricted fundamentalist in its approach (although it is likely to give a heads-up about them). This appears to be a well-rounded and scholarly help, yet accessible to an educated Bible student.

I don't write many reviews, but I had to at least comment on this Hebrews commentary. Mr. Guthrie is a fantastic writer. His insights on the text are not overly technical but will serve the needs of the average biblical student. Where this text really shines is in his application. Guthrie is obviously a voracious reader and his application sections quote a wide range of resources. I have been moved time and time again by his arguments and application of the text. Teaching through the book of Hebrews has been both personally enriching and incredibly challenging, and I am weekly fed by this resource. If you are a student of the great book of Hebrews, please do yourself a favor and get this book. You may not always agree with his exegesis, but you will be touched by his application and challenged to live out your faith in the king-priest Jesus.

Hebrews is a tricky text for those of us new to studying scriptures. This commentary is easy to read, has great insights into the text, and does a great job of showing "why it matters". Amazing resource for newbies.
