Scot McKnight has emerged as one of the most popular and influential NT scholars of the last decade. His popular blog (Jesus Creed) attracts thousands of daily readers, and his books are perennial bestsellers that prove to be informative, edifying, and challenging.
1 Peter [NIVAC] is no exception to this rule. McKnight does an excellent job of illuminating the rich and troubled circumstances of the original reader's while also skillfully Peter's extensive moral exhortations in light of the original recipients' context. McKnight, who also accepts the so-called "new perspective" on Paul, no doubt reads 1 Peter through similar lenses and equally draws the implications for this non-pauline book. A Master of Application, readers are in store for a rich reward of wisdom and practical extrapolations from the text.
About the Series
This unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today. Therefore, the NIV Application Commentary Series helps with both halves of the interpretative task: exegesis and theological application.
Additionally, the unique reader friendly format and the direct pinning of the entire series to the NIV, make it exceptionally easy for non-specialist readers to follow and learn from.
Commentary authors will, at times, work with the original languages but complete explanations are always given in non-specialist language; and they serve the exclusive function of further explicating the text at hand. The same approach is taken with all complex issues and interpretive matters. The focus is on learning and applying and every tool used by the commentators serves this end.
