The First Epistle of Peter (NICNT)
Peter's first letter to the early churches is a significant expression of New Testament theology and pastoral care. This volume explicates the letter to show how the early church applied Jesus'sayings and the Old Testament writings to contemporary concerns. Peter Davids'sown translation is the starting point for his clearly written, well-balanced discussions on each verse. He draws frequent parallels to ancient literature, interacts with other works on 1 Peter, and presents one of the most up-to-date bibliographies on the book.
