Unlike most of the letters of Paul, 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus are written not to church communities but to individuals caught up in the midst of challenging situations. Hebrews, on the other hand, is a quite distinctive letter, with its compelling presentation of how, in the coming of Jesus, God has given us something 'better' than all that had gone before in the Old Testament period. All four letters are written, however, to help churches to develop the distinctive lifestyle of Jesus' followers in an often hostile world. Theological questions are interwoven with pastoral concerns as the writers seek to guide the growing congregations towards maturity. Combining the latest scholarship with straightforward language and a reverent attitude to Scripture, it aims to instruct the head and warm the heart. The authors come from around the world and across the Christian traditions, and offer serious yet accessible commentary. The People's Bible Commentary is an invaluable resource for first-time students of the Bible, for all who read the bible regularly, for study group leaders, and anyone involved in preaching and teaching Scripture.
