Based on the widely used New International Version translation, this commentary presents careful section-by-section exposition with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Greek transliterated. A separate section of notes at the close of each chapter provides additional textual and technical comments. Included is also a selected bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes.
"Hillyer's commentary on the Petrine epistles and Jude is both concise and incisive even in its exegesis of difficult verses. His volume, written from an evangelical perspective and based on the NIV, is most appropriate as a text for undergraduate biblical students and as a supplement to personal Scripture reading for educated laity. . . . Another value of this commentary is the wealth of background that the author brings to the letters from the Old Testament, Jewish intertestamental works, and other literary sources."
