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.

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.
