Not as helpful as Moo or as other commentaries in the series. He focuses more on minor issues rather than painting with a broad brush to show the overall argument. ( )

Davids's commentary is certainly accessible to the non-specialist but still consistently engages issues of concern for scholars (such as text-critical questions, e.g. pp. 98-99) and therefore would serve both undergraduate and graduate courses rather well.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802837263, Hardcover)

Filling a notable gap in scholarship on 2 Peter and Jude, Peter Davids artfully unpacks these two neglected but fascinating epistles that deal with the confrontation between the Greco-Roman world and the burgeoning first-century Jesus communities. Davids firmly grasps the overall structure of these oft-maligned epistles and presents a strong case for 2 Peter and Jude as coherent, consistent documents. Marked by exceptional exegesis and sharp, independent judgments, Davids's work both connects with the latest scholarship and transforms scholarly insights into helpful conclusions benefiting Christian believers.
