This commentary was thrilling to read: Thoughtful, beautifully written, and challenging. Buy a copy, get your Bible, and pray for the Holy Spirit's help. You will not be disappointed. HEBREWS is now one of my favorite books in the Bible. Highly recommended.

This commentary which is not part of a set, has long been considered one of the best available. The commentators on the commentaries commend it for its wide historical sweep and for the way Hughes wrestles with the difficult theological questions. Derek Thomas gives it a one-word review: “Outstanding!” while Jim Rosscup says “The commentary is quite full and able to discuss ramifications where many even of the good commentaries are too general for some eager readers.” [Full Review]
If there is a second "must-read" commentary on Hebrews, it is the contemporary classic by Philip Hughes. He is particularly helpful in drawing out theological implications of the text. If you can only afford one commentary, buy the set by Lane and ask someone to purchase Hughes for you as a gift. [Full Review]
