Item description for First and Second Peter and Jude (Westminster Bible Companion) by Fred Craddock, Patrick D. Miller & David L. Bartlett...
Overview Fred Craddock examines the letters of 1 and 2 Peter and Jude. Of each epistle he asks, What kind of literature is it? Who wrote the letter? To whom was the letter written? And for what purpose was the letter written? Craddock's answers let us draw from these often undervalued epistles on awareness of what is involved in living a Christian life in this world. We also see the similarities and differences in how Christ is portrayed in these epistles as opposed to the depiction found in other New Testament writings.
