In this addition to the well-received Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament series, New Testament scholars Duane Watson and Terrance Callan examine cultural context and theological meaning in First and Second Peter.
This commentary, like each in the projected eighteen-volume series, proceeds by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Each contains informative outtakes, images and explanations of theological issues associated with the text. As the title of the series implies, these commentaries are oriented towards teaching the contents of the Bible. These are mid-level commentaries ideal for students whose aim is to achieve expertise or comprehensive knowledge of particular biblical book. Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight Watson and Callan offer in interpreting First and Second Peter.
