Dr. Thomas Schreiner, an articulate and highly respected biblical scholar and theologian, guides the reader carefully through these practical, yet profound epistles. The two letters of Peter and the epistle of Jude remind us that God's grace in Christ makes a difference in the way believers live. We were chosen not only for salvation but also for obedience. Too often our churches suffer from moral breakdown and a false view of tolerance. Christians often avoid any word of criticism or judgment because they fear that strong words compromise love. We learn from these epistles that love manifests itself in godly living and that right doctrine must be matched by Christlike lives. The Holy One calls us to be holy as well.
