Review 1 for Hebrews: New Testament Library [NTL]
Date:July 5, 2006
In the latest title from the New Testament Library series (Westminster John Knox), Luke Timothy Johnson, probably the leading Catholic exegete next to Joseph Fitzmyer, largely fills in the gap between his acclaimed 1-2 Timothy and James commentaries in the Anchor Bible series (Doubleday) with an excellent exposition of Hebrews. Johnson is a conservative exegete who premises his argument on the assumption that Hebrews is a letter calling on believers to grow in maturity through perseverance in the midst of suffering after the example of Jesus (http://mysite.verizon.net/vzeojt6o/2006biblesandbiblereference/).
