The Epistle to the Hebrews provides a window into how the larger society applied pressure to early Christians to shame them back into conformity with their neighbours. It becomes an illuminating text for considering how to sustain Christian commitment in a non-supportive environment.

DON'T BUY THIS BOOK!!! This book has been superseded by a new publication of mine with Cascade Books (an imprint of Wipf & Stock) called The Epistle to the Hebrews in Social-Scientific Perspective. I've tried to cover essentially the same topics as I did in Bearing Christ's Reproach back in 1998 -- A social profile of the author, a social profile of the audience, and three chapters devoted to the socio-rhetorical strategy of Hebrews -- but the new book reflects my ongoing engagement with Hebrews in the fourteen years since I wrote Bearing. In particular, chapters 1, 4, and 5 have extensive new material (2 and 3, admittedly, not so much -- though still all also revised). This new book has been available on Amazon since July 2012.About the Author:
