Attridge’s commentary on Hebrews provides an excellent treatment of a notably difficult Greek text. Students looking for rigorous interaction with the text as well as parallels to the Greco-Roman context will not be disappointed by this commentary. [Full Review]

I didn't find this commentary very helpful. Attridge seems to be overly concerned with constructing a history of ideas behind the text, which while can be informative, in this case got in the way of actual interpretation of the text. Per the series, Attridge often had an excursus on relevant topics, which tended to be of more use than the surrounding exposition.

I begin with Harold Attridge, in part because I worked through it carefully with a class years back when it first appeared [Full Review]
