9781629950518: The Message of the General Epistles in the History of Redemption: Wisdom from James, Peter, John, and Jude

This volume considers the theological richness (indicative) and practical relevance (imperative) of the New Testament General Epistles—James, 1-2 Peter, 1-3 John, and Jude—within a redemptive-historical framework. Although not the most familiar portion of the New Testament, these letters have much to say about the call to discipleship in the twenty-first century. Part One (“Scallywags”) focuses on 1 Peter. Here we see that Christ has accomplished salvation and that his life provides the pattern for faithful living in the face of worldly opposition. In Part Two (“Scoffers”) the truth of 2 Peter and Jude is set in contrast to the destructive doctrines of scoffing false teachers. Part Three (“Schisms”) reflects on the challenges of the Johannine letters that address who belongs to God’s family. Finally, Part Four (“Wisdom”) looks at the practical teaching of James in light of the teaching of Jesus.

About the Author:

Brandon D. Crowe (MDiv, Reformed Theological Seminary; PhD, University of Edinburgh) is associate professor of New Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary and Book Review Editor for the Westminster Theological Journal.

Review:

"The General Epistles continue to be relatively ignored, to the church’s detriment. This book seeks to remedy that neglect and does so in a winsome and very helpful fashion. Written for a broader audience, it evidences the sound and careful scholarship from which any interested reader will benefit. This volume will make an excellent resource for personal and group Bible study. I commend it most highly." --Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary

"Too often the letters at the end of the canon, which are often called the Catholic Epistles, are neglected. We ignore these letters to our peril, for they have an urgent message for the church today. Crowe faithfully expounds these letters in a brief and accessible manner. In unpacking the message of the Catholic Epistles, he demonstrates how they are an essential part of the gospel message. Pastors, students, and all others interested in the message of the Scriptures will benefit from this theologically faithful and pastorally applicable work." --Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation & Associate Dean, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

"Peter, John, James, Jude—important early-church leaders who knew Jesus and wrote letters to churches. Why do we neglect them? This book uncovers the treasure hidden in these passed-over writings. In a survey that is terse and gripping, Brandon Crowe shows how, in turbulent times not unlike ours, God furnished direction for his people and light for the world. The book’s stress on God and Jesus reinforces the truth that the General Epistles, like all the rest of Scripture, point beyond humans and their situations to the divine wisdom that is transforming the world—and that can change our lives." --Robert W. Yarbrough, Professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri, USA
