Two New RBL Book Reviews

Scott Mackie, who has authored his own monograph on Hebrews, offers a review of A Cloud of Witnesses: The Theology of Hebrews in Its Ancient Contexts, edited by Richard Bauckham, Daniel Driver, Trevor Hart, and Nathan MacDonald. The volume is a collection of sixteen essays originally delivered at the Hebrews and Theology Conference at St. Andrews in July of 2006.

David M. Allen, who has also authored a monograph on Hebrews, gives a review of Barry C. Joslin's, Hebrews, Christ, and the Law: The Theology of the Mosaic Law in Hebrews 7:1-10:18. The law has continuing validity for Hebrews; it is fulfilled in Christ, but it is also transformed by Christ through the internalization of the law in the believer in the New Covenant.

A third book, Deliver Us from Evil: Interpreting the Redemption from the Power of Satan in New Testament Theology, by Richard H. Bell, although not a book on Hebrews per se, does contain a chapter on Hebrews entitled, "Redemption from the Devil in Hebrews."
