In today’s world, where Christian believers are facing increased levels of persecution, we need to understand why Peter calls the Gospel the “living hope” that overcomes. In a world where false teaching is often accepted and encouraged, we need to understand why Jude “felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.” In today’s world, where the commentators seem to agree that the Church will soon succumb to its enemies, we need to understand what made John so sure that the Church would “overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
These letters could not be more relevant to our generation. Their message could not be more urgent. Allow them to show us how the Church can survive and thrive in our day. The Gospel always triumphs…Straight to the Heart of Peter, John and Jude is one of a series of devotional commentaries which allows people to get to grips with each book of the Bible one bite at a time. Each book contains 60 punchy and relevant chapters, crammed with fascinating and accessible scholarship.
