Theology of the Letters of James, Peter and Jude - 94 edition

Theology of the Letters of James, Peter and Jude (ISBN10: 0521356598; ISBN13: 9780521356596)
ISBN13: 978-0521356596
ISBN10: 0521356598

This edition has also been released as:
ISBN13: 978-0521356312
ISBN10: 0521356318

Summary: The letters of James, Peter, and Jude have been greatly neglected within the Christian tradition: James, because it seems both to attack Paul's gospel and also to lack any coherent, overall argument or theology of its own; Peter and Jude because they lack the specificity of the Pauline letters and because the personalities of the authors are hardly direct and immediate. Andrew Chester argues that James is more theologically significant than is usually considered the
case, and has a distinctive role to play in the contemporary discussion of the Christian faith. He sets James in context and discusses its main themes, exploring its significance especially for issues of power, justice and Christian living. Ralph P. Martin similarly stresses the importance of 1 and 2 Peter and Jude and demonstrates how they cast light on Jewish Christianity in its early development and show how the post-apostolic church used the memory of Peter.
  • Gives much-needed attention to letters which number among the most neglected parts of the New Testament
  • Both authors are well-known scholars of the New Testament
  • The latest addition to a rapidly expanding, well-reviewed, and increasingly high-profile series
