The Letters of 2 Peter and Jude
Davids, Peter

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2006 pp. 380. $34.00

Series Information
Pillar New Testament Commentary Series

Description: Filling a notable gap in scholarship on 2 Peter and Jude, Peter Davids artfully unpacks these two neglected but fascinating epistles that deal with the confrontation between the Greco-Roman world and the burgeoning first-century Jesus communities. Davids firmly grasps the overall structure of these oft-maligned epistles and presents a strong case for 2 Peter and Jude as coherent, consistent documents. Marked by exceptional exegesis and sharp, independent judgments, Davidsís work both connects with the latest scholarship and transforms scholarly insights into helpful conclusions benefiting Christian believers.
