2 Peter was widely circulated throughout the early church to warn people to watch out for the false teachers that were appearing in the church, Leading to immorality and the loss of its witness.

Paul Gardner is also the author of Ephesians: Encouragement and Joy in Christ (9781845502645) and Revelation: Compassion and Protection of Christ (9781857923292) in the Focus on the Bible commentary series.
