Abstract:

"Pastors and leaders of the ancient church interpreted the Bible theologically, believing Scripture as a whole witnessed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Modern interpreters of the Bible questioned this premise. But in recent decades, a critical mass of theologians and biblical scholars has begun to reassert the priority of a theological reading of Scripture. The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret Scripture for the twenty-first century. In this addition to the series, Douglas Harink offers an insightful theological exegesis of 1 & 2 Peter that will be of use to professors and students in New Testament, the Epistles of Peter, and theological interpretation courses, as well as pastors, church leaders, and libraries."--BOOK JACKET.
