The Letter to the Hebrews is a key text in the New Testament canon. It has recently received a great deal of attention, prompting a resurgence of scholarly works, and a need to re-engage with some of the foundational works of scholarship on the text. The history of research on Hebrews is presented in this volume of critical readings, edited by Scott D. Mackie. The volume is organized thematically, addressing the following sub-areas: theology, Christology and pneumatology; eschatology; authorship and audience; structure and Greco-Roman influences; the relationship with contemporaneous Judaism, and soteriology. Each section is prefaced by an introduction and summary of the particular theme in Hebrews. At the end of each section is an annotated bibliography to point researchers towards further readings in and engagements with these key themes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Scott Mackie has assembled a significant collection of diverse articles dealing with important issues in the interpretation of Hebrews. This collection includes classic as well as more recent studies and its contributors represent a variety of viewpoints. Students of Hebrews are indebted to Dr. Mackie for assembling this material in one handy volume. * GARETH LEE COCKERILL, ST. GEORGE CENTER FOR BIBLICAL AND PUBLIC THEOLOGY, CANADA *
The past three decades have witnessed an explosion of outstanding research on the once, relatively-neglected book of Hebrews, but that explosion has scattered those unearthed riches far and wide, hidden in a collection of essays here, tucked in a journal article there. Now, Scott Mackie has done the laudable, bringing some of the best work together in one admirably presented volume. * GEORGE H. GUTHRIE, UNION UNIVERSITY, USA *
Scott Mackie has edited a collection of essays old and new on some of the most important, and most hotly debated, subjects in Hebrews-exegesis. He brings together classic pieces by well-known scholars as well as more recent contributions by younger authors; essays that are time-tested points of reference as well as examinations that have helped to open up new avenues and to spark more recent debates. * GEORG GAEBEL, UNIVERSITY OF MUENSTER, GERMANY *
Important scholarship is often tucked away in Festschrifts and other collections, unbeknownst to the burgeoning scholar. Scott Mackie has done students of Hebrews a great service by bringing this collection of individual articles and chapters together into one place. * KEN SCHENCK, INDIANA WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY, USA *
Scott D. Mackie, already recognized as a learned and creative interpreter of Hebrews, demonstrates here his masterful command of the secondary literature in both his concise introductions to six major topics of scholarly debate and his judicious selection of exemplary articles. Contemporary students of Hebrews will treasure this book, and future generations will find it a worthy tribute and guide to the golden era of Hebrews scholarship that it documents. * ERIC F. MASON, JUDSON UNIVERSITY, USA *
