B&H Books 1 & 2 Peter & Jude: New American Commentary [NAC]

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.

Thomas R. Schreiner (Ph.D., Fuller Theological Seminary) is professor of New Testament at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and the Associate Dean for Scripture and Interpretation. He is also preaching pastor of Clifton Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky. Besides many articles, Dr. Schreiner has written a commentary on Romans and several books on New Testament theology.

Even though I am not a fan of the NIV, I bought this commentary simply because Thomas R. Schriener wrote it. He is a meticulous New Testament scholar, and this commentary is superb. It is a step up from Edmond Clowney's "The Message Of 1 Peter," and is a very good resource for seminary students, lay people, and ministers. The introductions preceding each book covered is a must read and should not be skipped over. If you are doing an exegetical study of 1 & 2 Peter and/or Jude, then get these two resources for your personal library. You won't regret that you did.

An excellent commentary on 1,2 Peter and Jude. I had used this commentary for my preparation for our cell group for 1 Peter for several months last year. His writings on 2 Peter and Jude are superb (5 stars) are as good as or even better than that of Gene L Green (Jude and 2 Peter, Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament) in theological and interpretation aspects, but are inferior to the detailed exegeses of Green"s. My rating for his writing on 1 Peter is of course 4.5 stars (when compared with that of 1 Peter by Edmond Hiebert). But overall, if you want only one moderately detailed bible commentary on 1,2 Peter and Jude, you should consider buying this very book.

Thomas Schreiner is a solid scholar. His reading of Scripture is sound and his commentary is clear and accessible. He doesn't overburden the reader with grand theories but goes to the heart of the matter with every verse. He thoughtfully interacts with other scholars as well as other traditions (Schreiner is reformed in his theology) thus bringing a balanced approach to the task of interpretation. He ably refutes the incorrect interpretations of others, but in a gracious, non-combative way. Nonetheless, you get the sense the issue has been laid to rest. Even if you disagree with Schreiner, the clearness and thoughtfulness of his commentary, I think, be worth reading.
