Dr. Bill Creasy's "1 Peter" is a live lecture about the first epistle of Peter, not a performance of the actual text of the epistle. Biblical scholar Dr. Creasy analyzes this important book from the New Testament with insight and warmth. A natural storyteller, Dr. Creasy employs dramatic pacing to engage the listener. Meanwhile, his voice is certainly easy on the ears and the subtle incorporation of the audience's reactions makes one feel very present with this audiobook. With years of experience as a professor and a scholar, Dr. Creasy's lecture surely appeals to religious and academic listeners alike.
Peter and Paul were close associates, and Peter had read many of Paul's writings, some of which, he says “are hard to understand”. Peter was a commercial fisherman, not a scholar like Paul. Nonetheless, Peter has in mind in the early 60s to write an epistle addressing a number of important issues - but he doesn’t feel rhetorically equipped to do so. Enter Paul’s associate, Silas. Peter says, “With the help of Silas I have written this letter.” And what a letter it is! In it Peter addresses salvation, grace, faith, the Trinity, atonement, and a host of other topics, any one of which would fill a library with theological books. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he delves into this extraordinary epistle, written by Peter, with the help of Silas.

I teach an adult sunday school class. I use several different sources of information, however i really enjoy Bill's commentary. He has been to the places he is teaching about, and sometimes knowing the physical terrain can add one more layer of understanding. I would highly recommend this commentary to anyone wishing to learn more about the bible.
