Item description for Commentary-2 Peter Jude (NIV Application Commentary) by Douglas J. Moo...
Overview This volume of the NIV Application Commentary helps readers learn how the message of 2 Peter and Jude can have the same powerful impact today that they did when they there were first written.
Publishers Description The apostles Peter and Jude wouldn t have made good postmodernists. They insist that there is such a thing as absolute, non-negotiable truth, as well as error and deception. They speak of false doctrines and those who teach them as if they actually believe that eternity hangs in the balance and that God, far from shrugging his shoulders like a good relativist, takes the matters of truth and spiritual authority very seriously. Today the fiery, unapologetic language of 2 Peter and Jude can open our eyes to stark spiritual realities. Like few other apostolic writings, these two letters shake us awake to the vital necessity of embracing the true gospel and transmitting it undistorted. The message is as countercultural as possible, and profoundly timely."

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-2 Peter Jude (NIV Application Commentary)?
A Great Contribution to Romans Dec 8, 2006
I did not give this volume a five star rating because of his monumental work in NICNT series. This, however, is one the best work in the NIVAC series.
His movement from the text to the contemporary significance, is a staunch reminder of how the Scriptures should be handled. I say get book works if you can afford them.
I loved the product!!! Mar 1, 2006
I loved the product!!! The only thing was that it took longer than most to get shipped, but other than that small detail it was great!
Great read Nov 5, 2002
As usual, Douglas Moo has a very readable style. The series is one of the best, but can be a bit tedious at times in its predetermined structure of Original Text, Bridging Text, and Contemporary Significance. I feel that the author is sometimes frustrated squeezing into this structure. But generally, the concept works and I'm very happy with the entire series--especially Moo in his Romans and now 2 Peter
Brings an often forgotten part of the NT to the fore. Oct 5, 1999
Moo's commentary certainly does a lot of good for the standing of these often forgotten books. His application to today is particularly good, with the attention to detail that you would expect from a scholar of his standing. It can be used as a great and accessible resource for anyone in ministry. Well worth the read - a highlight in an already promising series.
