Item description for First and Second Peter, James, and Jude (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching) by Pheme Perkins...
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.
First and Second Peter, James, and Jude have existed on the edges of the canon throughout the centuries. In this much-anticipated volume in the Interpretation series, Pheme Perkins casts light on these often neglected writings. She ably demonstrates that these "catholic epistles" have, in fact, much to offer to today's readers.
Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.
