As with every book in the Everyman's Bible Commentary series, Dr. Barbieri has prepared an easy-to-understand and practical study. This new edition is packed with wise insights about our great salvation and our conduct as Christians before God, the world, and fellow believers. It also includes strong reminders from 1& 2 Peter to oppose false teachers and false doctrines that creep in and seek to destroy the church.
Designed for lay people, the Everyman's Bible Commentary Series deals seriously with biblical texts without being overly technical. In First & Second Peter, Louis Barbieri takes these books passage by passage, providing background and scholarly interpretation. First Peter is a practical book about the Christian's behavior before God, the world, and fellow believers. Second Peter discusses the characteristics of the believer and warns against false teachers and doctrines that creep into the church.
