Publisher's Summary

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.

Great lecturer!

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.

Stand firm in faith in the face of suffering

The book is a great reminder to stay strong in faith even if our faith leads to suffering. A memorable point in the book is: "be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. Do no repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit blessing." That to me sums up Christians' behavior in the world. Another thing to think about is, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give a reason for the hope you have." As always Creasy does a great job expounding on the text to help us understand what the author is telling us.

One of the best teachings of Peter

I have read or heard teaching of Peter1 before and cant believe how much I missed or
skipped over without realizing it. Always good idea to follow along in your Bible.
