Neither Peter nor Jude minced words about the realities that would confront every Christian and that were confronting the church at largesuffering and persecution, contradictory views of the gospel, constant challenges to the faith at the hands of false teachers. Yet even in the face of these harsh realities, both biblical writers unswervingly declared that there is no cause for despair as long as one's foundation and identity are in Christ.

With the truths of 1-2 Peter and Jude echoing across the ages, commentator David Helm beckons us to listen in his stirring exposition. Yet it is not enough to listen, he says. Peter's and Jude's words must compel us to do just what the early Christians did: hold fast to their identity in Christ, ground themselves in the truth, live lives worthy of their calling, and vigorously contend for the faith.

As Helm explores these three epistles in depth, he delivers clarifying messages for all God's people:

  • ^^Messages that will assist you in understanding, applying, and dynamically communicating the biblical text.
  • ^Messages that can quicken every believer's mind for action.
  • ^Messages that should strengthen us all as we contend for the faith in these challenging times.
^^About the Series
^1 & 2 Peter and Jude is part of a Bible commentary series entitled Preaching the Word. The series is noted for its unqualified commitment to biblical authority, clear exposition of Scripture, readability, and practical application. R. Kent Hughes is the general editor for the series, which will eventually encompass every book of the Bible. It is an ideal resource for pastors and teachers, as well as for personal Bible study.

Messages that should strengthen us all as we contend for the faith in these challenging times."This commentary/collection of sermons has my warm endorsement. I read them, in my daily devotions, over the period of a month and profited greatly. The message of these books is often neglected, and I pray that this volume will go a long way to redress this deficiency." Canon John C. Chapman, former director, Department of Evangelism, Diocese of Sydney"David Helm has an engaging style, all his own. Best of all, he engages with the text of Scripture, with life as it really is, and with the hearts and minds of the lively congregations who first heard and benefited from much of this material." Dick Lucas, Trustee, The Proclamation Trust"David Helm exercises a vibrant preaching ministry in the city of Chicago. This book of Bible expositions displays his strengths as a preacher and serves as a model for other Bible teachers. It is vigorous in its defense of spiritual truth, clear in its explanation of biblical words and their contextual meaning, vivid in its use of language and illustrations, well-structured in its exposition of particular Bible passages, and fresh in its practical application of biblical truth to daily Christian life. It is the kind of commentary, in other words, on which preachers quickly learn to rely." Philip Graham Ryken, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia Recommendations for the Series"The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition available today. A great boon for genuine reformation!" Timothy George Dean, Samford University, Beeson Divinity School"For this outstanding series of expository commentaries, Kent Hughes has assembled a team of unusually gifted scholar-preachers. The series will be widely used and much sought after." Eric J. Alexander Retired Senior Minister, St. George's-Tron Parish Church, Glasgow, Scotland"The Preaching the Word commentary series is one of my favorites. The focus upon explaining a text with preaching it as the goal makes the series resonate with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher-to-preacher meat for God's people." Bryan Chapell President, Covenant Theological Seminary"I'm delighted to endorse the philosophy behind the series edited by my friend Kent Hughes. Here sounds out the voice not of the scholar in the study but of the scholar in the pulpit. The authors are all able teachers who regularly expound God's living Word to his people. May this rich material give us 'patterns of preaching&rsq
