1 Peter by Wayne A. Grudem
This is something slightly different for my book list, though I have read several similar books over the past 6 months, this is the first time that I have mentioned one like this here. I just had not thought about doing it until challenged by a friend as to why I had not done so. No specific reason just did not think about it.
Anyway this is a commentary on 1 Peter that I used to help with the Studies we have done on 1 Peter over the past few weeks.
Wayne evidently has a great depth of knowledge on the book, and provides an insight to the text on how readers are encouraged to grow in their trust in God and their obedience to him throughout their lives, but especially when they suffer.
Archbishop Robert Leighton says in the introduction "Here is a brief and very clear summary both of the consolations and instructions needful for the encouragement and direction of a Christian in his journey to Heaven, elevating his thoughts and desires to that happiness, and strengthening him against all opposition in the way, both that of corruption within, and temptations and afflictions from without,"
As a non biblical scholar it was a tad heavy going in places but very useful in helping prepare the studies. So this is book 32 week 27 – novel 22, poetry 1, study 1 audio 8
