Confidence in the world is grounded in the gospel and our identity in Christ.
In his letter to scattered groups of Christians in what is modern-day Turkey, the apostle Peter ignites imagination and inspires hope for the possibilities of everyday life in a complex world.
Joe Warton is a warm and gracious guide through this six-session study, helping you to discover Peter’s trove of wisdom for everyday living. This is a letter that is both exhilarating in its scope and intensely grounded in the grittiness of real life. Like those who first received Peter’s letter, you will be challenged to see your daily context afresh and deeply encouraged to live confidently – Monday to Sunday – wherever you are.
Share with the group, keep your own.
Perfect for on-your-own study or small groups, this beautiful, keep-able book is £4.99 for one or five for £18, so everyone in your small group can have their own copy to make notes in, reflect further, and go deeper in study. Why not use 1 Peter as your next small group study?
‘Full of illuminating insights into the letter’s original context, full of pertinent questions for a group to talk through, and full of ideas to live out the ways of Jesus with confidence.’
– Ness Wilson, Team Leader of Open Heaven Church, Chair of Loughborough Churches Partnership, and Pioneer UK Leader
