Even when one disagrees with some of the interpretations and conclusions reached by Elliott, you never get the impression he is pushing his own agenda but that he is trying hard to see the text as it really is. I highly recommend The Anchor Bible as a whole and especially the volume on I Peter.
Most commentaries seem to take this approach on any book of the Bible now. Elliot doesn't press the issue too hard, but it is annoying. I wish the commentators (many of whom are professing Christians) would realize that they are destroying the foundations of Christianity by having so little faith in the inspired authorship of the Bible.
That said, Elliot's book is otherwise excellent. I really enjoyed the introduction, particularly the sections on the language and style of the book. Elliot has compiled a lot of great information about the Greek text that I found useful.
