This is a great book, taking you step by step through the letters, but also referring to other Biblical books, and other sources. John Stott explains clearly the relevant cultural issues of the time, but also mentions current cultural isuues, and explaining how the Bible can be understood in the light of both of those.
One thing I really enjoy about the book is that it doesn't shirk the difficult questions, but attempts to answer them honestly, giving different viewpoints, and then giving John Stott's own understanding of the issue.
I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to gain a deeper understanding of God's Word to us today.
