Product Description

THE THEOLOGY OF THE LETTERS OF JAMES, PETER, AND JUDE by Andrew Chester and Ralph P. Martin. The authors of this study argue that the letters in question are more theologically significant than is often considered the case, and have a distinctive role to play in contemporary discussion of Christian faith. Andrew Chester sets James in context and discusses its mains themes. He addresses the problems that James has been seen to pose, in relation to Paul, for the canon and coherence of the New Testament, and points to the significance of James for the present day. Ralph Martin shows how Jude and 1 & 2 Peter give insight into Jewish Christianity in its earliest development; how the Christian movement was understood in an outlying region of the empire; and how the post-apocalyptic chuech utilized the memory of Peter for its practical needs. PS NOTES THEOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE: Evangelical GREEK/HEBREW: No BIBLIOGRAPHY: Yes OTHER: Footnotes, Indexes AUTHORS: Ralph P. Martin is Professor of New Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA.
