Another excellent commentary to add to the The New American Commentary series by B&H. Scholarly, pastoral and thoroughly evangelical.

Thomas Schreiner is definitely one of my favorite commentators. And in his commentary on 1st, and 2nd Peter and Jude, he does not disappoint! He is scholarly, yet easy to read, in depth, yet not tedious, and, in my opinion, most importantly of all, he seems to be a genuine believer who writes with a desire to not only edify his readers but exhort and convict th

I read Schreiner's comments on 1 Peter, and they were superb. He does a great job at observing the text and explaining the flow of thought. He is easy to read, while still scholarly. Also, and I rarely find this done well in biblical commentaries, he handles Old Testament quotes and allusions very well. Sometimes in brief and sometimes at length, he goes back to the OT context to show what the passage meant then and how Peter is using it now.

This was very helpful to me as I prepared for a Bible
Schreiner delivers a scholarly work that helped me gain a more complete understanding of 1 Peter, Jude, and 2 Peter.

1 Peter - We are pilgrims journeying towards our eternal home. We endure adversity, represent Christ with our lives, and, above all, we love each other. We do these things by the grace God has supplied unto the glory He is due.

2 Peter/Jude - Jude, I am convinced, precedes 2 Peter. Peter would expand upon Jude in his letter while Jude helps us with interpretive difficulties in 2 P

Outstanding commentary! I've yet to come across a commentator that lays out the issues as clearly as Schreiner. His handling of the intertextual, non-canonical books (e.g. Jude's use of the Assumption of Moses)leads a reader to appreciate why Jude chose to include these Jewish texts. If I was only allowed a single work on Jude, I'd choose this one.

I read the 2 Peter portion of this commentary. Schreiner does a good job and confronts theological issues most commentators avoid.
