“Second Peter and Jude have been called the ‘dark corner’ of the New Testament,” writes D. Edmond Hiebert in the preface to this volume, his latest work. He suggests that the label “dark” results from the mistaken notion that these epistles deal with obsolete issues, or that they contain so many “things hard to be understood.” He insists, however, that Second Peter and Jude “are of abiding spiritual importance for our own troubled and turbulent days.” In a clear, concise style, Dr. Hiebert attempts to cast light into this “dark corner.” With balanced, scholarly research, Dr. Hiebert not only interprets particular phrases and verses in 2 Peter and Jude, but he also strives to relate these smaller components to the overall message of each epistle. The author also explores the relationship of 2 Peter and Jude to each other. Always there is the practical emphasis on how these epistles relate to modern believers. The result is an exposition that is warm, scholarly, and thoroughly orthodox in the finest sense of the word. D. Edmond Hiebert is a noted author, teacher, and Bible commentator. He received his A.B. in history from John Fletcher College and his Th.M. and Th.D. from Southern Baptist Seminary. Before and during his seminary training he served as a pastor; following his graduation from seminary he served as professor of New Testament at Tabor College, Hillsboro, Kansas. In 1955 he became professor of Greek and New Testament at the the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary in Fresno, California. Dr. Hiebert has written several commentaries, including The Thessalonian Epistles, A Call to Readiness; The Epistle of James, Tests of a Living Faith; Mark, A Portrait of a Servant; First Peter, An Expositional Commentary; and the volumes on 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus and Philemon in the Everyman Bible Commentary Series. He has also written a three-volume Introduction to the New Testament.”
