The DLT Books of the Bible are designed to reignite a passion for reading the Bible. A selection of Christian writers and leaders have each been invited to choose a book (or selection of books), and introduce it anew for a modern audience. What most excites them about this book of the Bible? What should we look for as we read it today, two thousand years (or more) since it was written? In this volume, theologian Gerald O'Collins introduces the Book of Hebrews, and shows how it expresses both Jesus' divine identity and full human existence. As bonus material, it also includes the epistles of James, 1 and 2 Peter, 1, 2 and 3 John, and Jude. Each volume in this essential series contains the text of the selected book, from the New Jerusalem Bible, one of the most respected and readable modern English translations.
