No commentary is as complete as JH Elliott on 1 Peter, and it is the result of a career of studies on the letter. [Full Review]
Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts By taking on the Anchor Bible commentaries and related volumes, Yale University Press has assured the survival of this hallmark series of scholarly volumes. The sturdily bound paperbacks stand up to backpack transit and ink pen notations. Students should be less reluctant to acquire (and read) the new format. Professor Elliott has devoted much of his scholarly career to analyzing the social and theological context of 1 Peter. This commentary represents over a decade of work. It provides a detailed account of previous interpretations of the epistle from the third century through the late 1990s. Maps illustrate Asia Minor in the Flavian period (69–96 C.E.), Mediterranean trade routes, and the hypothetical route that Silvanus, the letter’s courier (1 Pet 5:12), took from Rome through the cities in Asia Minor. Elliott sticks to the format established by the long commentaries in the series. After an introduction treating genre, sources, language, composition, authorship and date, addressees, context, theological motifs, and canonicity, each section follows the same pattern. The author’s translation of the passage is followed by an introduction to its literary structure, detailed exegetical notes to each verse, phrase by phrase, and general and detailed comment sections. Detailed comments permit the author to defend his solution to complex problems and later theological teaching attached to 1 Peter. [Full Review]
