1 Peter

Full Product Description

This book offers a concise and accessible introduction to "1 Peter" aimed at undergraduate students.Like other volumes in the "New Testament Guides" series, "1 Peter" offers a concise and accessible introduction to a New Testament text, in this case aimed specifically at undergraduate-level students. It provides information on the likely historical and social setting of this letter, on its literary form and theological content, and on issues involved in its interpretation. It gives a balanced presentation and assessment of the range of scholarly views on such topics, with guidance for further reading and research.In particular, this volume suggests that "1 Peter" is an important text not least for the ways in which it both reflects and constructs early Christian identity, in its relationships with Judaism and the Roman Empire. Although "1 Peter" remains neglected compared with the canonical gospels and the major Pauline letters, Horrell argues that the letter deserves much more attention for the pivotal contribution it makes to the development of early Christianity and for the ways in which it reveals this development in progress.

1 Peter by David G. Horrell was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in March 2008. The ISBN for 1 Peter is 9780567031686.
