Overview

Many Christians around the world today face severe persecution. Others continually feel the weight of cultural pressure against them. The apostle Peter speaks to this circumstance as he reminds us that Christians are aliens and exiles in an often-hostile empire. At the same time, believers are simultaneously the chosen of God, equipped by Jesus’ work for us and in us to live faithfully in our dual identity. In this exposition of 1 Peter, Daniel Doriani explains how the work of Christ enables Christians to live with hope, joy, and faithfulness in a pagan world. He also explores Peter’s emphasis on the kind of life that pleases God—a life that includes respect for authorities, just or unjust. Doriani also richly describes Peter’s teaching on godly behavior as a wife, husband, or elder. By God’s grace, Christians can perform good deeds, have courage, and take a firm stand in the face of trials.
