Jared Calaway has a proposal about The Social Network of the Epistle to the Hebrews.  He also contemplates the application of the Social Sciences to Hebrews.

Cliff Kvidahl provides a brief review of David M. Allen's Deuteronomy and Exhortation in Hebrews.  He also has a blurb and table of contents of the forthcoming book, Christology, Hermeneutics, and Hebrews.

Kevin Brown has a series on The Christology of Hebrews: Part 1. Part 2. Part 3.

Eerdmans interviews Gary Cockerill, author of the forthcoming NICNT commentary on Hebrews: Part 1. Part 2.

Jim West promises a review of Cockerill's book when he is finished reading it.


  1. Gary Cockerill's interview is really good!

    + this is the best thing I've read in awhile:

    "Thus, we can say that the person who penned Hebrews was concerned pastor, accomplished orator, profound theologian, and insightful Biblical scholar. Throughout this commentary, however, I have persistently called him “the Pastor,” because his oratorical skill, theology, and biblical interpretation are all in service to his deep pastoral concern for the eternal well being of his hearers. I have come to feel his pastoral heart and admire his rhetorical skill. I have been enriched by his theological understanding and informed by his biblical interpretation. Sometimes I almost feel that I know him as a friend — and yet he is also my master who has taught me much."

  2. Scott, I look forward to reading his commentary.
