Jude writes to a first century Church in danger of being overcome by false doctrines and false teachers. Is the twenty-first century Church any different? Jude teaches Believers to recognize false teachers by their moral character, and false doctrine by its three characteristics of unbelief, defilement, and rebellion. Along the way he confirms the major doctrines of the historic Christian faith, and teachers Believers how to deal with apostates in the church. From a translation by the author.

About the Author
James D. Quiggle holds Master's degrees in religion and theology and has been teaching and writing about the Bible for over forty years. He became a Christian in 1974, Mr. Quiggle believes Biblical truth has the intrinsic power to produce positive change. The mature Believer uses the Bible to make informed decisions about his or her faith. “The intent of every book I write,” he said, “is to help the reader validate the truth by checking out the facts. It is also my hope that my books will be used by local church teachers as source material for their ministries.” Mr. Quiggle's goal is to teach the Bible so that others may decide for themselves what the Bible has to say about their faith and life.
