Book Review: Hebrews

Lectio Continua on Hebrews commentary on Hebrews by David McWilliams has just been released and following in the line of great commentaries by Lectio Continua it proves to be an essential contribution to this very important book of the Bible.

Here are what the endorsements had to say:

This promises to be a great resource for churches seeking to know the Word of God more fully. –Carl R. Trueman, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, PA

Dr. McWilliams addresses the Epistle of Hebrews with theological precision and homiletical incisiveness. We learn how Hebrews draws from all of Scripture to unfold the covenant of grace culminating in the majesty of Christ, the God-Man, who fulfills the calling of Prophet, Priest, and King as the Mediator of a New Covenant. McWilliams grasp of the profound theology of Hebrews is marvelously displayed in the simplicity of expositional preaching. The result is a superb asset for any Christian, but especially for preachers and teachers of God s Word in general and the book of Hebrews in particular. –Harry L. Reeder, III Senior Pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, AL

David McWilliams exposition of the book of Hebrews admirably fulfills the aims of the Lectio Continua Expository Commentary series. Combining exegetical rigor with pastoral sensitivity, McWilliams opens up the riches of the book of Hebrews as a sermon-epistle that emphasizes the superiority of Christ, the Mediator of the new covenant, and warns its recipients of the real danger of falling away through unbelief and neglect. Though the book of Hebrews is densely argued, and therefore presents daunting challenges to its readers, McWilliams manages to open up its treasures in a clear and compelling manner. Pastors and church members alike will greatly benefit from his exposition, which is saturated with homiletical and pastoral insights. –Cornelis P. Venema, President and Professor of Doctrinal Studies, Mid-America Reformed Seminary, Dyer, IN

Some of the other volumes in this series are J.V. Fesko’s Lectio Continua on Galatians, and Kim Riddlebarger’s, Lectio Continua on First Corinthians
