The book of 1 Peter could have been written for our times—a time of antagonism toward biblical ethics, and the marginalization of biblical Christians. Into that culture—our culture—Peter speaks of hope and offers joy as he points believers home to heaven.

Juan Sanchez brings his experience of ministry in the US and Latin America, and his pastoral wisdom and insight, to this wonderful epistle—an epistle that every Christian needs to treasure today.

This commentary in the Good Book Companies 'For You' series is a good evangelical preaching/lay reader commentary. It comes unashamedly from an 'evangelical' perspective and shows evidence of being familiar with recent scholarship. I found lots of helpful points for explaining and applying the text, and would recommend if you didn't have another good preaching commentary. The only complaint about this commentary is the way it's structured. Each chapter of the book is split into two halves, each dealing with successive pericopes. I'm not sure why they were considered 'half chapters' rather than chapters, as there was rarely significant interaction between the pericopes.
