                                         From the reviews:

"Skaggs' commentary [on 1 Peter, 2 Peter, and Jude] is a commendable achievement.... This book and commentary series provide a fine balance between two different needs: (1) to identify and discuss key and critical issues for anyone seriously grappling with NT texts; and (2) to offer readability, conciseness and application ... especially for an intended lay and pastoral audience. Skaggs' commentary will prove useful for sermon preparation and Bible study groups and as a supplementary text in undergraduate courses that study these epistles. Despite its distinctive label, this commentary should not preclude non-Pentecostals from also making valuable use of Skaggs' contribution to these oft overlooked NT books." - Chris M. Smith, in PNEUMA

"Readers aware of the Pentecostal provenance of this series, and its concern to nurture the spiritual lives of Christians, will find it an approachable and often perceptive commentary on these three often neglected letters." - Ian Boxall, in Journal for the Study of the New Testament

Rebecca Skaggs and Priscilla Benham
Revelation

Where do we go after death? What happens to us? What factors influence our destiny? What will happen to the world in years to come?  Is there a controlling divine force in human experience? Is there a plan, or is life a product of random occurrences, of chance? Why is it the righteous who are persecuted and suffer while the wicked seem to prosper? Is there justice in the universe?

The book of Revelation offers answers to many of these questions. Since, however, it is one of the more difficult of the New Testament books to read and interpret, it is often overlooked, neglected or even avoided by today’s Christians. Yet it addresses many prophetic issues of importance to those seeking to understand God’s plan for the future. Speaking through its heavy symbolism and sometimes strange visions of heaven, angels, beasts, earthly turmoil and destruction, the Apocalypse offers hope that God will overcome evil and that he does indeed control human destiny. 

Students and interested readers of the New Testament will find many of their questions answered as they work through this book, which is especially suitable for group use.

Rebecca Skaggs
1 Peter, 2 Peter, Jude

This commentary, written from a distinctively Pentecostal perspective is primarily for pastors, lay persons and Bible students. It is based upon the best scholarship, written in popular language, and communicates the meaning of the text with minimal technical distractions. The author offers a running exposition on the text and extended comments on matters of special significance for Pentecostals. She acknowledges and interacts with alternative interpretations of individual passages, and her commentary also provides periodic opportunities for reflection upon and personal response to the biblical text.

This title was first published by Sheffield Academic Press/Continuum, but is now available in the new Deo Publishing format together with all the other volumes in the Pentecostal Commentary series.
