Albert Vanhoye's Forthcoming Commentary on Hebrews

One of the most famous interpreters of Hebrews, Albert Vanhoye, S.J.,ironically, has yet to release a commentary on Hebrews until now.  is releasing another commentary on Hebrews. (Brian Small has informed me that this will mark VanHoye's second commentary on Hebrews. The first, A Different Priest: The Epistle to Hebrews, was published by Convivum Press in 2011. Brian has a review of it here).

Vanhoye, now also a Cardinal and 91 years of age, has dedicated most of his academic energies to the letter of Hebrews, highlighted by such works as La structure littéraire de l'Epître aux Hébreux, Desclée de Brouwer, Tournai, 1963; Situation du Christ. Epître aux hébreux 1 et 2, Paris, 1969; and La lettre aux Hébreux: Jésus-Christ, médiateur d'une nouvelle alliance, Paris, 2002.

There are not many details as of yet regarding the commentary to be published by Paulist Press. However, it will be released in July 2015, weigh in at a concise 256 pages, and retail at $34.95.
No doubt, both students and scholars of Hebrews will be eager to read Vanhoye's contribution, no doubt peppered with insight from someone who has spent a lifetime studying this letter.
