9781857923377: 1 Peter (Focus on the Bible)

1st Peter was written by the Apostle Peter to encourage believers for whom the storm clouds of persecution were gathering, just because they were Christians.

To encourage them he first reminds them that suffering is temporary, and that faithful living in times of suffering will produce eternal benefits. He develops this theme to show that such a lifestyle, lived out in difficult and dangerous circumstances, is an effective witness to unbelievers, and will result in church growth - the very opposite effect intended by those who persecuted them.

Book Description:

Written by the Apostle Peter

Review:

"Commentary series fulfils the aim to be readable, reliable and relevant. 1 Peter, written by the apostle Peter to encourage believers during times of suffering and persecution, is systematically discussed in such a way as to meet the need for serious engagement with the text and issues. It contains modern quotations and illustrations which bring the teaching to life, and combines substance with simplicity. A very helpful tool for personal Bible study." (WS, CLC Book Reviews)

"Combining substance with simplicity, the Focus on the Bible series is rich in stimulation" (Charles Price ~ Senior Pastor, The Peoples Church, Toronto, Canada)

'....an indispensable research source for pastors, teachers, and bible students." (Richard Mayhue ~ Research Professor of Theology Emeritus, The Master's Seminary, Sun Valley, California)

'....ambitious, competent and well presented series....' (Derek Prime ~ Author and former pastor of Charlotte Chapel, Edinburgh)
