Publisher's Description

The New Testament book known as "The First Letter of Peter" describes how Christians should relate to the world. Specifically, it suggests how Christians should define themselves against a powerful and sometimes hostile culture. Written to first-century Christians in Asia Minor who were suffering from religious persecution, this letter brings Biblical and extra-Biblical traditions together to forge an original and unique pastoral strategy. At the same time, in its depiction of "practical piety," the letter is an impressive display of early Christian theology. Here, one of the world's authorities on Peter provides a verse by verse interpretation of First Peter that is both highly readable and deeply informed.

Editorial Reviews

The commentary is characterized throughout by a strong engagement with relevant primary sources.... offers a rich and informative exegesis of the letter which will certainly repay careful study.


In terms of commentaries that focus primarily on the Greek text, Feldmeier's contribution is significant for its readability, relatively condensed nature... and theological weightiness. I concur with the cover endorsements that praise F[eldmeier]'s marvelous handling of the literary and social-historical setting.
