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 had been plundered, and some had even 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. Such encouragement and challenge are never without relevence to Christians. Raymond Brown demonstrates this clearly in his passage-by-passage exposition.

"David M. Allen discusses Hebrews' use of the narrative and text of Deueteronomy to shape its exhortations. By engaging with the various references that Hebrews make to the Deuteronomic text, he argues tht Hebrews becomes a "new" Deuteronomy and challenges its predecessor's contemporary hegemony."--BOOK JACKET.

This book is the companion piece to our economic times, simply the best gathering of the Scriptures as an antidote to our mindless and self-driven affluence I have seen. . . . We all need this book in our daily lives; it will live with me. -- Arthur Jones National Catholic Reporter Father Haughey challenges Christians, on and off Wall St., to see money not as a reward, or protection, or even necessity, but as something quite simple and utilitarian -- a means of expressing their love for God. -- Wall Street Journal Scholarly, provocative, and challenging, this book will help its readers quit trying to serve God and Mammon. -- Bishop William E.

A Spatial Analysis of the Epistle to the Hebrews Annang Asumang ... The Message of Hebrews: Christ Above All. In The Bible Speaks Today, edited by John W. Stott. Leicester, Downers Grove, IL: IVP, 1982. Bruce, Frederick Fyvie.

While the intensely captivating language of the Epistle to the Hebrews may stir and invigorate modern New Testament readers to renewed spiritual energy, readers often remain clueless as to the book's overall theme and message. Despite the tendency for preachers to use various verses of the book of Hebrews as proof texts, few preachers today systematically expound the passages of Hebrews so that its general thesis is more clearly understood, so that it is practically applied for daily Christian living and witness. The different proposals about the epistle's uniting argument have not resulted in scholarly consensus; neither have they diminished the common impression about the epistle's difficulty. For such an important book of the Bible, given that the book of Hebrews skillfully bridges our understanding of the two testaments into one whole, such a situation is, to say the least, unsatisfactory. The Epistle to the Hebrews utilizes the language of spaces in its expositions and the language of movement in its exhortations, with powerful rhetorical effects; yet few studies have attempted to analyze the book from this perspective. In this study, Asumang employs models from the interdisciplinary social-science investigative methodology of spatiality to analyze Hebrews. He demonstrates that the author of Hebrews interpreted the migrating camp of the Israelites in the wilderness, depicted in the book of Numbers, through a Christ-tinted lens and that the Hebrews writer applied these lessons to the grave pastoral condition of his congregation. When examined from this perspective, the Epistle to the Hebrews proves to be a most potent recipe for spiritual formation and Christian discipleship today.

Joshua is the Old Testament book that troubles the contemporary readers, whether Christians or critics. Isn't there too much violence? Isn't this inconsistent with the rest of the Scripture and the message of the gospel? David Firth begins his excellent exposition with a careful and helpful response to this issue. This book challenges those who have read Joshua down through the ages to recognize that God doesn't just include those who join him in his mission; he also excludes those who set themselves against it.

The destruction of Jerusalem is the likely setting for the book of Lamentations, delivered from a place of unspeakable pain in poetry of astonishing beauty and intricacy. In this Bible Speaks Today volume, Christopher Wright shows that we must not, and cannot, isolate Lamentations from the rest of the Bible.
