In this volume, Puritan preacher and clergyman Thomas Manton offers insights on Jude's epistle, which was devoted to revealing the character of godless men who turned God's grace into a license for immorality.
Jude devoted his epistle exclusively to confronting those who had defected from the true biblical faith and the false teachers who had led them astray. Revealing the character of these godless men who changed the grace of God into a license for immorality, Jude calls the church to discernment. He also encourages the believers to persevere in the faith with prayer and the knowledge that the wicked will be punished.
Jude's urgent call to persevere in the truths of our faith amid false teachings proves relevant for every believer today. Thomas Manton's faithful insights will give pastors and students of the Bible a thorough handle on the key passages of this short epistle.
Throughout the history of Christianity, many great minds have devoted themselves to the study and exploration of the Bible in pursuit of spiritual insight. Believers today are fortunate to benefit from this impressive history of inquiry and inspiration.
