"Second Peter and Jude have been called the 'dark corner' of the New Testament," writes D. Edmond Hiebert in the preface to this volume, his latest work. He suggests that the label "dark" results from the mistaken notion that these epistles deal with obsolete issues, or that they contain so many "things hard to be understood." He insists, however, that Second Peter and Jude "are of abiding spiritual importance for our own troubled and turbulent days." In a clear, concise style, Dr. Hiebert attempts to cast light into this "dark corner." With balanced, scholarly research, Dr. Hiebert not only interprets particular phrases and verses in 2 Peter and Jude, but he also strives to relate these smaller components to the overall mesage of each epistle. The author also explores the relationship of 2 Peter and Jude to each other. Always there is the practical emphasis on how these epistles relate to modern believers. - Back cover.
