Most of us know what it’s like to struggle. And most of us would appreciate some help—especially from someone who can sympathize, someone who knows what it’s like. Peter is just the man for the job. He wants us to have the strength to go on, coupled with peace within. To that end he prescribes a healthy dose of hope. But his aim isn’t just to make us feel good; he wants us to think straight and to live right. One day the struggles will be over. By God’s grace we can and will outlast them. We just need to keep going ‘a little while’ longer, and, as Andrew Thomson demonstrates in this easy-to-read and practically applied commentary, Peter shows us how.
Although the Bible can seem incomprehensible, the Opening Up the Bible series is designed to provide a basic grounding and introduction to the individual books within it. These simple (but not simplistic) tools will help individuals and small groups understand God’s Word, no matter what background or knowledge they already have.
Each volume takes you section-by-section through the covered book, opening up God's word with wisdom, insight, and practical application. Additionally, the "For Further Study" points at the end of a section provide guidance to other areas of scripture that further illuminate the lesson, and the "To Think About and Discuss" section provides thought-provoking questions that can be used by both individuals and groups to gain understanding and apply the subject matter to life today.
Andrew Thomson has been pastor of Kesgrave Baptist Church, Suffolk, since 2010. He became a Christian through a university mission while studying at Oxford and ran a Christian bookshop for some years before being called to the ministry. He is the author of the commentaries on 1 and 2 Chronicles and Isaiah in the Opening Up series. He and his wife, Helen, are blessed with three children.
