Reviews - What do customers think about The Epistles of Peter and of Jude?
Good semi-technical work Feb 27, 2005
This commentary is not as deep going as Bauckhams, but that is not the aim of the series either. This is a good commentary for the average reader who does not know greek. It is very readable and Kelly argues his case in a pleasant way. Another (and perhaps better)commentary in the same league would be Greens in the Tyndale series, who also assumes Petrine authorship, which Kelly does not.
Disappointing Oct 31, 2002
The late Dr. Kelly is one of my all time favorite authors in the field of Church History (_Dictionary of Popes_, _Golden Mouth_, _Jerome_), but this foray into Biblical Studies, is quite disappointing. Dr. Kelly merely retreads tired interpretations of what are three of the most overlooked but most interesting of the New Testament epistles. The inclusion of 1 Peter with 2 Peter & Jude is highly dubious as well. For really interesting writing on Jude & 2 Peter, I would suggest E. Earle Ellis' or Richard Bauckham's work. There are many excellent commentaries on 1 Peter, too many to list. I guess even brilliant authors have their off days.
