Item description for Faithful to the End: An Introduction to Hebrews Through Revelation by Terry L. Wilder, J. Daryl Charles & Kendell H. Easley...
Overview Faithful to the End provides fresh, classroom-ready introduction to Hebrews through Revelation, emphasizing each of these New Testament book's theme of perseverance in the faith.
In classroom and scholarly study, the Gospels, Acts, and the Pauline letters receive far more attention than does the so-called "end" of the New Testament: Hebrews; James; 1 and 2 Peter; 1, 2, and 3 John; Jude; and Revelation.
Faithful to the End: An Introduction to Hebrews Through Revelation offers a careful study of these latter biblical letters, closely examining each one's authorship and origin, destination and audience, purpose, and major themes. Appropriate as a reference work or textbook in college and seminary classrooms, this volume uniquely combines head knowledge with a challenge to the heart, for it is purposefully titled after each book's recurring theme of persevering in the faith.
Coauthor Terry L. Wilder writes, "Our hope is that God might use this text to help readers not only learn about these New Testament books, but also to appropriate the message contained in each. May we be faithful to the end "

Reviews - What do customers think about Faithful to the End: An Introduction to Hebrews Through Revelation?
Surprisingly persuasive Jul 1, 2009
Over the last few years I have reworked an old theological subject for advanced-level undergraduates, examining the New Testament epistles Hebrews, James, 1-2 Peter and Jude. While there's a vast literature on the "back end of the New Testament", there are not many books suitable for use as a textbook for this sort of course. This book came into the library for review, and a cursory look had me thinking, here's yet another too-conservative defence of the apostolic authorship of James and the Petrines. For decades I had been persuaded that the strong scholarly consensus was correct: the Petrine letters were not written by their stated authors.
However, as I read the book for review I found myself - despite myself! - increasingly convinced that the claim of pseudonymity just doesn't stand up. I am compelled to accept that the early church (I mean in the second and third centuries) believed they were authentically by Peter and Jude respectively, for very good and powerful reasons. Thus, if these epistles are pseudonymous, a large bulk of the early church were very badly mistaken. I won't rehearse here the reasons given by the contributors to the essays in the book. Those essays are of uneven quality as well as disproportionate length, but I do recommend that jaded NT scholars who still unthinkingly follow the Tübingen School's "early catholicism" rubric, read this book and think again. It won't take long.
