Item description for The Message of Hebrews: Christ Above All (Bible Speaks Today) by Raymond Brown...

Overview
Times were hard for the first readers of the letter to the Hebrews. Many had been exposed to fierce persecution. They had been assaulted, their homes plundered, and some had been cast into prison. To such people this letter came as an encouragement. The writer of the letter turns their eyes to Christ, shows how he fulfills the hope expressed in the Old Testament sacrifices, and calls his readers to a steadfast faith that will take them through the hard times they now face.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of Hebrews: Christ Above All (Bible Speaks Today)?

Solid Non-technical commentary   Mar 14, 2007
As has been noted in other reviews. This commentary is written from a conservative evangelical position. It was also written for those who have not mastered the Greek language, and who are not familiar with technical hermeneutics and exegetical methods. So, if you need that, go to Wm. Lane's Word Biblical Commentary. But, if you just simply want to know, "What does the text teach me about God, and how I should respond?" then Brown is very helpful. Good for Bible study leaders and basic sermon prep. Others authors to look at on Hebrews would be, F.F. Bruce and particularly Philip E. Hughes.
 
Content, not author, is the point  Feb 4, 2002
Other reviewers of this book have restricted their comments to the fact that the author is not Fr. Raymond Brown, SS, of blessed memory, one of the premier biblical scholars of the 20th century. These reviewers dismiss this book out-of-hand simply and simplistically on the ground of "misleading" authorship. This is not helpful. This "other" Raymond Brown has important things to say, too, in a way very different from Fr. Brown. I urge that folks carefully examine the pages available and make their own decision based on what this book wants to say, not who wrote it. In that regard, it should be noted that this is a theological and practical exposition of the themes of the Letter to the Hebrews, written from of conservative-evangelical, Baptist confessional perspective. It is written for the non-academic, non-specialist, Christian reader. It is a combination of anecdotal reflection and scholarly insight. It is concerned with the canonical text of Hebrews, and places it in a late first-century, Jewish-Christian church setting in a time of persecution and consequent temptation to apostasy. These are the sort of observations and questions by which this book should be judged, not the pedigree of its author.
 
excellent commentary  Aug 11, 2001
This commentary series is geared toward a theological perspective and not a technical one. It is very much like the interpretation series but written from a much more conservative point of view. The other reviewers are correct; this book is not written by the liberal false teacher Raymond Brown who hated Christ and his Gospel. Unlike the other Raymond Brown, this writer was not a papist who attacks the accuracy of the bible. The other brown was a false teacher and is now dead. No loss to the Christian Church. Good riddence you false teacher.
 
Re 'Mislead' review  May 13, 2001
I am most grateful to your reviewer from Plano, TX, USA for pointing out that the book is not by THE Raymond E. Brown. As a great fan of the Scholar I would have been tempted to buy the book, but not now. Thanks 'Plano TX'. Bill Fawkes, North Yorkshire England.
 
Mislead  Apr 28, 2001
This book is not written by THE Raymond Edward Brown, the same Scripture scholar who wrote the Death of the Messiah, the Birth of the Messiah, co-edited the New Jerome Biblical Commentary, and many other classics.

This book is a very different level of scholarship and written from a very different viewpoint than that held by the late Raymond E. Brown, S.S., a giant among Scripture scholars of the late 20th century.

It is unfortunate that you have these two authors grouped together. I was quite disappointed to discover your error when I acquired the book.
