1 & 2 Peter and Jude: Sharing Christ's Sufferings

By David R. Helm, Series edited by R. Kent Hughes

Neither Peter nor Jude minced words about the realities that would confront every Christian and that were confronting the church at large-suffering and persecution, contradictory views of the gospel, constant challenges to the faith at the hands of false teachers. Yet even in the face of these harsh realities, both biblical writers unswervingly declared that there is no cause for despair as long as one's foundation and identity are in Christ.

With the truths of 1-2 Peter and Jude echoing across the ages, commentator David Helm beckons us to listen in his stirring exposition. Yet it is not enough to listen, he says. Peter's and Jude's words must compel us to do just what the early Christians did: hold fast to their identity in Christ, ground themselves in the truth, live lives worthy of their calling, and vigorously contend for the faith. 

Part of the Preaching the Word series.

Endorsements:

"This commentary/collection of sermons has my warm endorsement. I read them, in my daily devotions, over the period of a month and profited greatly. The message of these books is often neglected, and I pray that this volume will go a long way to redress this deficiency."
John C. Chapman, Former Director, Department of Evangelism, Diocese of Sydney

"David Helm has an engaging style, all his own. Best of all, he engages with the text of Scripture, with life as it really is, and with the hearts and minds of the lively congregations who first heard and benefited from much of this material."
Dick Lucas, Rector Emeritus, St. Helen's Church, Bishopsgate, United Kingdom; Founder of Proclamation Trust

"David Helm exercises a vibrant preaching ministry in the city of Chicago. This book of Bible expositions displays his strengths as a preacher and serves as a model for other Bible teachers. It is vigorous in its defense of spiritual truth, clear in its explanation of biblical words and their contextual meaning, vivid in its use of language and illustrations, well-structured in its exposition of particular Bible passages, and fresh in its practical application of biblical truth to daily Christian life. It is the kind of commentary, in other words, on which preachers quickly learn to rely."
Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College
