The next entry in Zondervan’s The Biblical Theology of the New Testament series will be A Theology of James, Peter, and Jude by Peter H. Davids.
The catalog description says:
“In this volume, Peter Davids offers a comprehensive study of the General or Catholic Epistles of James, 1-2 Peter, and Jude, which are often insufficiently covered in more general New Testament introductions, theologies, and surveys. Davids first deals with their common aspects, the, in the chapters that follow, embarks upon a theological reading of each letter informed by its social-rhetorical understanding–what they meant in the context of their original cultural settings–including: a survey of recent scholarship, a discussion of relevant introductory issues, a thematic commentary, a treatment of important theological themes, and a discussion of the place of the letter in the biblical canon and its contribution to New Testament theology.”
Watch for this in October. It will be a hardcover with 416 pages and sell for $39.99.
Peter H. Davids is Visiting Professor in Christianity at Houston Baptist University.
