The letters of Peter and Jude are among the most pastorally sensitive in the entire New Testament, because they contain messages of encouragement and warning. In his commentary on the epistles of Peter and Jude, Kelly offers an introduction and overview of the important literary, textual, and theological themes. With only nine chapters on which to comment, Kelly has ample room for adequate discussion of problem passage and challenging interpretations.
Praise for the Print Edition
Great erudition lightly carried, precise attention to detail which always illuminates and never obscures the argument, clarity of treatment even when the subject is itself confused, and an infectious enthusiasm for the task of decoding an ancient and well-loved text.
