MARK ADAMS

THOMAS ADAMS (1652)

Spurgeon - “Full of quaintnesses, holy wit, bright thought, and deep instruction.  We like Adams better in commenting than in preaching.  His great work is quite by itself, and in its own way remains unrivalled.  We know no richer and racier reading.”

WILLIAM BARCLAY

Comment: I appreciate Barclay's unique insights on Greek words, but clearly his teaching about a "second chance" is NOT sound doctrine! Be an Acts 17:11 Berean with Barclay. See discussion of his orthodoxy especially the article "The Enigmatic William Barclay".

John Cereghin - Brief conservative comments. He defends Petrine authorship (109); holds that “the divine choice and call do not make human effort unnecessary” (117); teaches the premillernnial coming of the Lord (127); thinks that the “elements melting” does not mean literal fire but judgment (132).

Spurgeon - “Dr. Schaff says: ‘Though very different from the immortal work of Archbishop Leighton on the First Epistle of Peter, these lectures breathe the same reverential spirit and devotional fervor, while they are much more full and thorough as an exposition.”

Commentary on 2Peter "Heavy" on the Greek - need to be able to read it.

Rosscup: Mayor, J. B. The Epistles of Jude and Second Peter: The Greek Text with Introduction, Notes and Comments. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1979. - This is quite a good older work on the Greek exegesis by the man who did an outstanding commentary on James. Mayor is more for serious students who know the Greek and are ready to read more technical detail on verses without being overcome.

JAMES MOFFATT - see caveat

John Cereghin - A liberal interpretation. He thinks that II Peter was a forgery written in the second century (173ff); admits the writer called Christ God (177); holds that cleansing comes through baptism (182). (Source) The upshot is BE A BEREAN with this commentary!
