Jude

By Thomas Manton, Series edited by Alister McGrath, J. I. Packer, Introduction by J. I. Packer

Original works by godly writers, tailored for the understanding of today's readers

For hundreds of years Christendom has been blessed with Bible commentaries written by great men of God who were highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. The Crossway Classic Commentaries series, carefully adapted for maximum understanding and usefulness, presents the very best work on individual Bible books for today's believers.

Jude devoted his epistle exclusively to confronting those who had defected from the true biblical faith and the false teachers who had led them astray. Revealing the character of these godless men who changed the grace of God into a license for immorality, Jude calls the church to discernment. He also encourages the believers to persevere in the faith with prayer and the knowledge that the wicked will be punished.

Jude's urgent call to persevere in the truths of our faith amid false teachings proves relevant for every believer today. Thomas Manton's faithful insights will give pastors and students of the Bible a thorough handle on the key passages of this short epistle.

THOMAS MANTON (1620–1677) played a prominent role in the Savoy Conference and the drafting of the Westminster Confession. He was pastor of a noted Puritan congregation in London but was later ejected from the official church for nonconformity, though he continued to preach wherever and whenever he had opportunity. Archbishop Ussher called him "one of the great preachers in England." His sermons formed the basis of his published commentaries.
