Item description for Commentary-1 & 2 Peter And Jude (Preaching The Word) by David R. Helm & R. Kent Hughes...
Overview A stirring Preaching the Word commentary that explores 1 & 2 Peter and Jude and reminds believers that there is no cause for despair as long as your identity and foundation are in Christ. An ideal resource for pastors and teachers, as well as for personal study.
Neither Peter nor Jude minced words about the realities that would confront every Christian and that were confronting the church at large-suffering and persecution, contradictory views of the gospel, constant challenges to the faith at the hands of false teachers. Yet even in the face of these harsh realities, both biblical writers unswervingly declared that there is no cause for despair as long as one's foundation and identity are in Christ.
With the truths of 1-2 Peter and Jude echoing across the ages, commentator David Helm beckons us to listen in his stirring exposition. Yet it is not enough to listen, he says. Peter's and Jude's words must compel us to do just what the early Christians did: hold fast to their identity in Christ, ground themselves in the truth, live lives worthy of their calling, and vigorously contend for the faith. Part of the Preaching the Word series.
