Zondervan is announcing yet another new commentary series, The Story of God Bible Commentary. Their description of the series is as follows:
"Emphasizing the historical distance between the contexts of the biblical world and contemporary culture, Zondervan’s highly anticipated The Story of God Bible Commentary series provides pastors, students, Sunday school teachers, and small group leaders with a clear and compelling exposition of the biblical text in the context of the Bible’s overarching story. The Story of God Bible Commentary series moves away from “application” language, which has been criticized as being too simplistic; instead it encourages discussion of how the Bible’s story can be lived today.
Offering a new type of application commentary for today’s context, The Story of God Bible
Commentary series explains and illuminates Scripture as God’s Story, with each biblical text
examined as embedded in its canonical and historical setting, in order to foster discernment
in living the story faithfully and creatively with and for the church in the 21st century.
For the interests of this blog, the author for the volume on Hebrews is Radu Gheorghita, who is Associate Professor of Biblical Studies at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and is the author of The Role of the Septuagint in Hebrews.
