O'Brien has given a useful and helpful commentary. I found the first half to be excellent and theologically potent. When he began to deal with the New Covenant, I thought the commentary began to lose its potent edge. I appreciate O'Brien and his work. This commentary is a useful addition to the relationship between BT and exegesis. This will certainly become a standard commentary to consult on Hebrews.

O'Brien is a superb commentator, as evidenced by his earlier treatments of Philippians, Colossians-Philemon, and Ephesians. This commentary, which is rigorously exegetical, theologically balanced, and eminently readable, joins Lane's one of the go-to works on Hebrews. I agree with Bateman's conclusion in his recent review: "Of all the critical commentaries I have read on the Book of Hebrews, O’Brien’s is well thought out, well written, and without question preeminent" (JETS 54.2 (2011): p. 406).

O'Brien's commentary is truly just as good as Lane's, and more readable at that! I could not more highly recommend this commentary on Hebrews.
