for Christian Proclamation Commentary series explores the theology of the Bible in considerable depth, spanning both Testaments Authors come from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, though all affirm the inerrancy and inspiration of Scripture United in their high view of Scripture, and in their belief in the underlying unity of Scripture, which is ultimately grounded in the unity of God himself, each author explores the contribution of a given book or group of books to the theology of Scripture as a whole While conceived as stand alone volumes, each volume thus also makes a contribution to the larger whole All volumes provide a discussion of introductory matters, including the historical setting and the literary structure of a given book of Scripture Also included is an exegetical treatment of all the relevant passages in succinct commentary style format The biblical theology approach of the series will also inform and play a role in the commentary proper The commentator permits a discussion between the commentary proper and the biblical theology that it reflects by a series of cross references.The major contribution of each volume, however, is a thorough discussion of the most important themes of the biblical book in relation to the canon as a whole This format allows each contributor to ground Biblical Theology, as is proper, in an appropriate appraisal of the relevant historical and literary features of a particular book in Scripture while at the same time focusing on its major theological contribution to the entire Christian canon in the context of the larger salvation historical metanarrative of Scripture Within this overall format, there will be room for each individual contributor to explore the major themes of his or her particular corpus in the way he or she sees most appropriate for the material under consideration.This format, in itself, would already be a valuable contribution to Biblical Theology But there are other series that try to accomplish a survey of the Bible s theology as well What distinguishes the present series is its orientation toward Christian proclamation This is the Biblical Theologyfor Christian Proclamation commentary series As a result, the ultimate purpose of this set of volumes is not exclusively, or even primarily, academic Rather, we seek to relate Biblical Theology to our own lives and to the life of the church Our desire is to equip those in Christian ministry who are called by God to preach and teach the precious truths of Scripture to their congregations, both in North America and in a global context.It is our hope and our prayer that the 40 volumes of this series, once completed, will bear witness to the unity in diversity of the canon of Scripture as they probe the individual contributions of each of its 66 books The authors and editors are united in their desire that in so doing the series will magnify the name of Christ and bring glory to the triune God who revealed himself in Scripture so that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved to the glory of God the Father and his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, under the illumination of the Holy Spirit, and for the good of his church To God alone be the glory soli Deo gloria In his volume on Hebrews, Thomas R Schreiner says, The words of Jesus on the cross, it is finished John 19 30 capture the theology of Hebrews My aim in this commentary is to focus on the biblical theology of the letter The emphasis on biblical theology shows up especially in the introduction and conclusion where theological structures and themes are considered In the introduction I will examine four different structures that are woven into the entire letter 1 promise fulfillment 2 eschatology 3 typology and 4 spatial orientation which can also be described as the relationship between heaven and earth in the letter The commentary will conclude, after presenting an exegesis of each chapter, with a discussion of some major theological themes in Hebrews Most modern commentaries consist of significant introductions and then conduct an intensive exegesis of the text, chapter by chapter and verse by verse By way of contrast, the introduction and the commentary are relatively brief and non technical With the proliferation of commentaries today, a new commentary should have a distinctive approach We now have many excellent commentaries on Hebrews which examine the letter in some detail Many of these commentaries provide a useful function in that they draw on other parallels from both Jewish and Hellenistic literature to illuminate Hebrews The advantage of such an approach is that the reader is plunged into the cultural world of the author On the other hand, the careful sifting of various traditions may cause the reader to lose track of the argument of the letter At the same time, the theology of the author may be muted, not because it isn t recognized but because it may be difficult to follow in the welter of information given to readers I hope a commentary that probes the theology of Hebrews will prove to be helpful I have been helped by many scholars in preparing this commentary, especially those who have written in depth commentaries and those who have written monographs on the letter No one writes from an objective standpoint, and hence I should state up front that I write as an evangelical Christian who believes that the scriptures are the living and authoritative word of God.

    1. As I sit down to write this review, I can hear the words ringing in my head, “another commentary series?” Or maybe, “another review defending the existence of another commentary series?”. The answers to these questions are yes and yes. However, I admit I too have skepticism of my own when I hear of a new commentary series being launched, but in the case of the new Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation series, and Thomas Schreiner’s flagship Hebrews commentary in particular, I ca [...]


    2. Outstanding!!!!It doesn't get any better than this! This commentary is a must have resource for anyone studying Hebrew! Scholarly, pastoral, and practical.


    3. There are many phenomenal commentaries, yet they usually fall into a segmented categories, yet the new series Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation, breaks the mold. For it is not only scholarly, pastoral, and insightful, but also extremely practical. This series is a planned 40 volume series, produced by B&H Academic and is edited by T. Desmond Alexander, Andreas J. Köstenberger, and Thomas R. Schreiner, and has just added its second entry.This first entry is titled, Hebrews, and is [...]


    4. The Book of Hebrews is arguable to one of the most difficult, and yet theologically significant works ever penned. This reality is confirmed by the sheer number of commentaries written on Hebrews within the last century. In fact, Bestcommentaries has over 90 commentaries (published between 1889 and 2015) registered for Hebrews, with an additional 20 commentaries scheduled for publication in the near future. So, why do we need another commentary on the Book of Hebrews? More importantly, what does [...]


    5. My full review can be found here at: wp/p3JhRp-qcHebrews is among one of the harder books of the NT to understand. Easy to read, confounding to understand (esp. when it comes to OT quotations, warnings not to fall away, and that bizarre Melchizedek character). The BTCP series aims at showing how Hebrews fits into the biblical storyline. Biblical theology is the theology of the Bible, and it is the attempt to understand and embrace the interpretive perspective of the biblical authors. This series [...]


    6. Here is the first volume in a brand new commentary series, the Biblical Theology For Christian Proclamation by Holman Reference. Published by the same organization that produced the wonderful New American Commentary (NAC) series, we have high expectations(all contributors will hold to inspiration and innerrancy). One of the General Editors, Thomas Schreiner, contributes the inaugural volume. Admitting in the Introduction to the series that we have so many series today that a new series needs a u [...]


    7. While I used several resources in my study of the book of Hebrews this one became a center piece of the discussion because of its simplicity, candor, and excellence in interpretation. This is my first resource of Hebrews and the one I would gladly recommend to any teacher thinking on teaching this book. I am glad to have purchased it and glad to have benefited so much from the scholarship of Dr. Schreiner.
