Resurrection Life in a World of Suffering: 1 Peter

Edited by D. A. Carson, Kathleen Nielson, Contributions by Nancy Guthrie, John Piper, Juan Sanchez, Carrie Sandom, Jen Wilkin, Mary Willson, D. A. Carson, Kathleen Nielson

With contributions from popular Bible teachers such as John Piper, Jen Wilkin, D. A. Carson, and Kathleen Nielson, this collection of biblical expositions explores the book of 1 Peter and the gospel perspective it gives on our short lives. With discussion questions and sections on how to teach after each chapter, this powerful anthology of six talks not only points us to the suffering of Jesus and prepares us to live as sojourners in this world, but also equips us to dig into the texts that address these themes.
