Trust and Obey

From the website:

This is a truly remarkable little gem adopting a brisk, word-by-word style of comment, and sparkling with fresh and challenging information. Some commentaries make the inspired writer say the same thing over and over again. They do not spot the distinctive pieces of counsel in each verse, or the deeper points.

YesYesYes

Why not get the The Christian Counselor's Commentary by Jay Adams, which includes the Trust and obey volume https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=Christian+Counselor%27s+Commentary&i=stripbooks&ref=nb_sb_noss

I have both copies and can confirm that the Trust and obey volume is the same as the entry in the The Christian Counselor's Commentary.

Um, respectfully, I am editing Dr. Adams' books and working to bring many back into print. Trust and Obey is a homiletic commentary geared toward helping the preacher. The ten-volume commentary series is pointed toward the counselor. They are NOT the same and Jay points that out in the intro to 1 Peter in his commentary:

For some time I had said in pastors’ conferences, “I suspect that there are many of you here who know more about what psychologists say concerning suffering than you know about what Peter says in his first epistle.” Then I began to reflect: “How much do you know about I Peter, Adams?” And apart from the normal elements every biblical scholar knows, I concluded, “You really don’t know very much, do you?” So I sat down and began an in-depth study of this magnificent treatise on how to handle unjust suffering.

That study led me to write a simple book on I Peter for preachers entitled Trust and Obey. Those two words summed up, I thought, the thrust of the Book: in suffering you entrust yourself to a faithful Creator and you go on obeying, doing good, regardless of what others do or say (see I Peter 4:19). This helpful letter, I concluded at length, is packed full of essential information not only for preaching but also for counseling. But what I said in Trust and Obey was geared mostly to preaching (not that the two are far removed from each other; they are two aspects of the same ministry of the Word—one public, the other private). Here I approach the book afresh from the perspective of Christian counseling. And as I have once more delved into the depths of Peter’s work, I am all the more impressed with its practical usefulness. If I Peter could be helpful in preaching, it can be doubly so in counseling.

You do have a point, they are not the same. I am not sure how i could have got this wrong, perhaps reading the foreward on the Trust and Obey commentary. I have read sections from both commentaries again and can see they are different. 

So thanks for pointing this out.
