Customer Reviews for Westminster John Knox Press The Letters of John and Jude

Westminster John Knox Press The Letters of John and Jude

The letters of John and Jude deal with heretical teachings within the early Church. In 1 John the problem was Gnosticism-a view that the material world is evil-and according to Barclay, a view that still infects the thinking of some of today's Christians. Second and 3 John contain warnings against visiting preachers who taught false doctrines and against other individuals who attacked the writer's authority. Jude indicts those individuals of loose morals, or antinomians, who had assimilated themselves into the Christian community.

Barclay was an incredibly gifted writer. His work on the the letters of John and Jude is no exception. The work is built upon solid scholarship, but is written in a popular style. The series is designed to provide easily accessible daily devotions. The aim was "to make the results of modern scholarship available to the non-technical reader..." Because of the vision of the series, Barclay's work should not used as a stand alone resource. But it definitely accomplishes what it sets out to do.
