Overview

Theologian and church historian Catherine Gunsalus González studies three often-overlooked books in the New Testament, 1 and 2 Peter and the Letter of Jude. These writings from the late first century or early second century helped guide the young church as it faced a variety of issues, both internal to the church’s life and external in the social and political culture in which it was growing. The letters help us focus on the character of the church and the importance of congregations in the church’s ongoing life. They raise basic issues of authority for how the church knows the directions to follow, how Christians should live, and how diverse views should be considered. González uses a variety of resources to illuminate these letters. She very helpfully centers on their theological importance for contemporary churches and for Christian living.

Top Highlights

“After the wide conversion of the empire, Christians may have felt they lived only in one world; but in that case it was the world of the empire that had invaded the church itself.” (Page 76)

“transform their minds, their actions, their attitudes, their whole lives, so that they are holy.” (Page 33)

“Clearly, in this letter as in so many other places in the New Testament, the distinction between slave and free, male and female, Jew and Gentile, was not supposed to continue in the church. But when the church became the dominant religion, there were still two worlds.” (Page 76)

“We may be tempted to discount all of this as strange ideas from the first century that have no relevance to today’s church.” (Page 220)

“the Bible is written to congregations, to gatherings of God’s people, and not to individuals” (Page 6)
