Respected Bible teacher Dr John MacArthur has produced a non-technical commentary series that is clearly expressed, logically arranged, and focused on personal application. Dr Macarthur identifies the major doctrines in each New Testament book, and explains them not only in their particular context, but also in relation to the whole of Scripture. From Moody Press.
The book of 1 Peter was written to believers scattered throughout Asia Minor. It addresses the sufferings that come to faithful Christians. As such, it speaks to believers today who are facing trials. For years now, John MacArthur has been helping Christians in their study of the New Testament, with verse by verse commentary on the theological ramifications of the passages.
Intellectually stimulating and personally relevant, this insightful series is ideal for pastors, teachers, and laypeople alike. With practical illustrations and clear verse-by verse exposition, MacArthur avoids becoming overly technical, even while tackling problematic topics such as the role of women, the ministry of spiritual gifts, and the rapture. Using a dispensationalist approach, his purpose is to provide life applications.
John MacArthur, the author of numerous best selling books that have touched millions of lives, is pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California and president of The Master's College and Seminary. He is also president of Grace to You, the ministry that produces the international radio program Grace to You and a host of print, audio, and Internet resources. He authored the notes in the Gold Medallion Award-winning The MacArthur Study Bible. John and his wife, Patricia, have four children who have given them thirteen grandchildren.- Publisher.

As Peter penned this epistle, the dark clouds of the first great outbreak of official persecution, investigated by the insane Emperor Nero, were already gathering on the horizon. Seeking scapegoats to divert the public's suspicion that he had started the great fire of July, A.D. 64 that devastated Rome, Nero pinned the blame on the Christians, whom he already perceived as enemies of Rome because they would worship none but Christ. As a result, they were encased in wax and burned at the stake to light his gardens, crucified and thrown to wild beasts. Though the official persecution apparently was confined to the vicinity of Rome, attacks on Christians undoubtedly spread unchecked by the authorities to other parts of the Empire. It was as a result of Nero's persecution that both Peter and Paul were martyred. But before he died, Peter wrote this magnificent epistle to believers whose suffering would soon intensify. Throughout the centuries, beleaguered Christians have benefited from the apostle's wise counsel and gentle, encouraging words of comfort.
