Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today.

The NIV Application Commentary has been my default commentary over the past four years because the series takes the narrative of scripture seriously. Once I am acquainted with orthodox interpretation, I can judge a book from other dimensions. I have taught from the series the Books of Romans, Luke, and Genesis; I read Revelations, John, Esther, James, Hebrews,Thessalonians, 1 & 2 Timothy, and Titus. This background in the series led me to consider Scott McKnight's commentary on 1 Peter.

McKnight sets out the goal of "to study 1 Peter in such a way as to highlight Peter's proposals for Christian life in a modern society" (22). In his overview, he breaks Peter's message into three points: salvation, the church, and Christian life. Peter describes salvation through Christ's suffering (1 Peter 2:24). The church is pictured as the family of God. In the Christian life, Peter exhorts his readers to practice hope, holiness, fear before God, love, and growth (32). What caught my eye was McKnight's observation that 1 Peter is the most popular NT book among Christians living with social marginalization and suffering outside the Western context (35).

Suffering. It is my own observation that the suffering in my own life--a wife with cancer, a child on dialysis, and a younger sister who died suddenly--has enabled me to witness more effectively to those around me. In like manner, we are drawn to the cross of Christ. "He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed" (1 Peter 2:24). McKnight's rendering of 1 Peter and his focus on the role of suffering convinced me that I need to spend more time with this book.
