Friends, get thee to your local Christian book store, or CBD, or Amazon, and buy Jen Wilkin’s 1 Peter study!
I just finished going through it with the ladies’ group at my church and it was one of the most fortifying/refreshing Bible “walk-throughs” I have ever experienced!
And while it would be accurate to say that 1 Peter is just incredibly meaty and satisfying, the truth is the entire Bible is that way if you know how to study it. What I loved about Jen’s study is that she shows you how to dig into this particular book in such a way that by the end, you feel better equipped to plumb the depths of the entirety of scripture. The book also has a dvd of her leading the study, and I am 99% sure you’ll enjoy her teaching. She’s so sincere and down-to-earth, you’ll feel like she’s talking to you in person.
None of this is a paid endorsement, by the way (funny that it’s necessary to say that nowadays), just my own personal feeling!
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. – 1 Peter 1:3-5
If you get it, make sure you let me know what you thought of it!
