Douglas J. Moo is the author of the 2 Peter and Jude volume in the NIV Application Commentary series.
This commentary is highly praised for helping the reader interpret the meaning of the text and for applying it to daily life.
The apostles Peter and Jude wouldn’t have made good postmodernists.
They insist that there is such a thing as absolute, non-negotiable truth, as well as error and deception.
They speak of false doctrines and those who teach them as if they actually believe that eternity hangs in the balance and that God, far from shrugging his shoulders like a good relativist, takes the matters of truth and spiritual authority very seriously.
Today the fiery, unapologetic language of 2 Peter and Jude can open our eyes to stark spiritual realities.
Like few other apostolic writings, these two letters shake us awake to the vital necessity of embracing the true gospel and transmitting it undistorted.
The message is as counter-cultural as possible, and profoundly timely.

“The NIV Application Commentary series doesn’t fool around. It gets right down to business, bringing this ancient and powerful Word of God into the present so that it can be heard and delivered with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend’s embrace.”
— Eugene H. Peterson
“The NIV Application Commentary series promises to be of very great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God.”
— J. I. Packer, Regent College
The NIVAC Series
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible.
But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own.
They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application.
The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done!
The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together.
This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context.
It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.
