 Book of the Month, January 2017

Andrew M. Mbuvi.  Jude & 2 Peter: A New Covenant Commentary  The Lutterworth Press.  340 Pages.  ISBN: 9780718894450

A thorough and extensive textual and contextual analysis, Jude & 2 Peter presents the epistles within the setting of first-century Greco-Roman associations, highlighting both similarities and differences between these fledgling religious groups and the more established guilds. Mbuvi interprets the Epistles from his own translations and thus provides a fresh and unique take on the well documented themes raised. Addressing concerns relevant to the Global Church, especially issues outside the Western world, Jude & 2 Peter provides a distinctive analysis of these two books, perhaps the least-read in the New Testament.  $30.00 from
