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...more

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.

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.
