Description

"Dr. Mary Healy has a way in her books of skillfully presenting Scripture and the Church's teaching in a clear, accessible, and engaging manner. In her commentary on the Letter to the Hebrews, she brings rich insight, depth, and understanding to this ancient teaching on how the perfect sacrifice of Jesus--the divine high priest who is also one of us, sharing in our human frailty--has definitively achieved our redemption and eternal salvation. Dr. Healy's commentary is a masterful treatise that offers significant assistance to those of us who seek to better know our faith as we make the journey toward the heavenly kingdom amidst all the struggles of the human condition."
--Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington

"In the New Testament the Letter to the Hebrews is a work of singular theological richness. Dr. Mary Healy has provided an accessible and insightful commentary, beneficial to seminarians, priests, and laypeople alike. The truths of the Sacred Scripture touch the very core of our lives, and this work, like the others from the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture, makes it possible for more of the faithful to experience the life-transforming power the Word offers them."
--Allen H. Vigneron, Archbishop of Detroit

"This superb commentary contains an ideal mix of academic and devotional content, admirably fulfilling the series' goal of presenting 'scholarship illumined by faith.' Mary Healy's solid exegesis wonderfully leads us into the exceptional theological richness of Hebrews. Especially noteworthy are the 'Reflection and Application' sections, the numerous sidebars, and the enrichment provided by quotations from the Church Fathers. This is a commentary not merely for the mind but for the nurture of one's spiritual life. I recommend it enthusiastically!"
--Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary
