Many Christians around the world today face severe persecution, while others daily feel the weight of cultural pressure against them. The apostle Peter speaks to this as he reminds us that Christians are aliens and exiles in an often-hostile empire. Yet we 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; godly behavior as a wife, husband, or elder; and, by God's grace, good deeds, courage, and a firm stand in the face of trials.
As are all the books in the Reformed Expository Commentary series, this exposition of 1 Peter is accessible to both pastors and lay readers. Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to the biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.
Dan Doriani explores how Peter presents both the effective work of Jesus for us and his personal work in usand how this enables us to live faithfully amidst trials.
