Reading First Peter with New Eyes is the second of four volumes that incorporate essays examining the impact of recent methodological advances in New Testament studies of the letters of James, 1 and 2 Peter and Jude. It includes rhetorical, social-scientific, socio-rhetorical, ideological and hermeneutical methods, as they contribute to understanding First Peter and its social context. Each essay has a similar three-fold structure, ideal for use by students: a description of the methodological approach; the application of the methodological approach to First Peter; and a conclusion identifying how the methodological approach contributes to a fresh understanding of the letter.

Reading First Peter with New Eyes follows on from the first volume in the series, Reading James With New Eyes, edited by Robert, L. Webb and John S. Kloppenborg.
