Letters to the Church: Audio Lectures introduces the cultural and theological background of Hebrews and the general epistles (James through Jude). These lectures, by respected New Testament scholar Karen H. Jobes, cover the historical background for each book focusing on authorship, genre, date, and content, as well as an exploration of the major themes in each book. The lectures address issues of historical relevance as well as unlocking these ancient Scriptural books for Christian faith and practice today.

Useful for formal students and laypeople alike, Letters to the Church: Audio Lectures provides an accessible study tool for anyone wanting to better understand Hebrews and the general epistles.
