Expository Bible-study guide to Hebrews that will excite Christians in their faith and equip teachers and preachers in their work.
Part of the God's Word For You series.
We are all tempted to drift away from Jesus, but in the book of Hebrews God gives us an anchor: a detailed understanding of how and why Jesus is better than anything else.
Seminary professor Michael J. Kruger unpacks this rich book verse by verse. He explains the Old Testament background, gives plenty of application for our lives today, and shows us how Jesus is the fulfilment of all God's work on earth. He encourages us to live by faith in Jesus—the only anchor for our souls.
This accessible, absorbing expository guide opens up this book for new and mature Christians alike. It is less academic than a commentary, making it a great resource for personal devotion, as well as useful for leading small group studies or sermon preparation.

“Hebrews for You” is an excellent resource. It reminds us that the Bible is one whole book, inspired by God, and if we apply ourselves to learn and understand the context, we are better equipped in our understanding: Because as Hebrews unfolds, drawing in these Old Testament truths, we see with fresh eyes the unity of scripture and the beauty of God’s story.... continue reading

Leant a lot as we unpack and 'delve' and read.
Highly recommended 👌
Bought this for a friend who does 121s- said it has been such a help in some of the more tricky passages of Hebrews. Love the questions at the end of each chapter. I recommend this series as a whole to anyone and everyone I can!
The book dealt with the complexities of Hebrews in sufficient depth, yet with a light touch and with warmth, pointing always for us to see Jesus in his unsurpassable greatness and sufficiency for our need
I’m so very glad I found this book, or rather that it found me. I’ve been trying to get properly to grips with the book of Hebrews and have found myself asking many questions I couldn’t answer. This is such a helpful guide which makes me feel in safe hands. The chapters are a manageable length and I appreciate the outline in the Introduction. I also feel that the tone of the commentary matches the tone of the book of Hebrews, so Kruger is helping me to pay close attention to the message of Scripture. What a blessing!
