Product Description

The Interpretation Commentary Series is a modern treatment of the scriptures designed to help preachers better communicate the Bible. In this volume, Perkins works through 1 and 2 Peter, James, and Jude, and effectively casts light on these often neglected writings, ably demonstrating that they have, in fact, much to offer to today's readers. The epistles are more than a compilation of traditional material. They are concerned with very specific and concrete issues facing the early Christian communities and offer a counterpoint as how to conduct oneself with others, how to live in a non-Christian world, and how to "shepherd the flock of God," as well as with theological issues such as the early Christian understanding of God, the relationship between faith and works, prayer, and suffering. 204 Pages. Hardcover from Westminster John Knox Press.

Pheme Perkins is Professor of New Testament at Boston College.
