Matthew Martin is a local church pastor and has provided a study book that was not necessarily intended for the big market shelves. In fact, Martin hoped it would be of help anyone who would like to read his thoughts on the book of Hebrews.
Therefore, this commentary does not set itself apart from major commentaries. However, it does help the layman who wants to dig deeper in personal study and apply the scriptures to his/her daily life. Scripture was not intended to be read and left alone, but to be applied and lived out through the grace & strength of the Holy Spirit’s leadership & guidance.
Mr. Martin’s text is easy to read and helpful. Readers won’t find themselves bogged down in terminology they have never heard, but will find that understanding the scriptures to be a worthwhile treasure.
I would recommend this book to someone who has never held a commentary before. It is a great starting point for the person who wants to study well for the first time.
