Item Description...
Overview
Hebrews is usually considered an early Christian homily alternating between scriptural interpretation and exhortation. It is saturated with references to the Old Testament, using rather "Platonic" arguments for the superiority of Christ. DeSilva's multi-pronged methodology nicely unravels the dense text.

Publishers Description
This commentary is the first to fully apply the resources of socio-rhetorical analysis to Hebrews. Insights into the cultural and social world of the audience are combined with analysis of the author's rhetorical strategy and ideology to create a rich, three-dimensional reading that helps unravel key issues in the interpretation of the epistle. David deSilva's reflections on application concluding each section also make his commentary valuable to seminarians and pastors seeking to make Hebrews relevant to today's world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A well rounded look at the Epistle to the Hebrews  Dec 16, 2004
This book is in the tradition of the socio-retorical commentaries made popular by Ben Witherington III. This format has the advantage of taking keen account as to how the text would have been heard by the original recipients and thus makes this style of commentary particularly strong in exegesis. DeSilva is a solid writer and the book is very well organized. Each section consists of an overview, commentary and summary. In addition there are usually one or more "closer looks" on controversial topics in each chapter. For example DeSilva spends several pages discussing Hebrews 6:4 and whether that verse represents the "unpardonable sin" mentioned in several gospel accounts. Even more helpful are sections titled "bridging the horizons" which give practical everyday applications to the texts just studied.
Hebrews is one of my favorite books of the Bible and I highly recommned this commentary.
 
Department of Redundancy Department  Feb 9, 2004
As a Bible major in my final semester of college, I know that commentaries are not intended to be, shall we say, colorful. But this book takes things a bit too far to the opposite extreme. Though informative and likely accurate in many of his claims, DeSilva's commentary on Hebrews has one major flaw in it: it is about 400 pages too long. I could expound upon this further, but then I would be guilty of the same thing that DeSilva is: saying something simple with far too many words.
