"Here is a theologically rich and literarily sensitive exposition of the plain meaning of 1 Peter. Joel Green has proven himself to be one of this generation's top expositors of Scripture because he lucidly explains a text, keeps his finger on the pulse of the latest scholarship, but does so in a way that keeps Scripture at the forefront." William J. Abraham
-- Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
"Joel Green has delivered a splendid commentary on 1 Peter. All who care about a rich theological reading of scripture will benefit from working through this lucid and multifaceted volume." Peter H. Davids
-- St. Stephen's University, New Brunswick
"Thoroughly conversant with the exegetical discussion of 1 Peter and the sociocultural world of the first century, Joel Green manages to keep from getting bogged down in the details -- although he does not ignore them -- in order to draw out the theological implications of the text of 1 Peter in a way that is a wonder to behold. . . This work is surely a significant contribution not just to the study of 1 Peter but also to Christian theological reflection. It will be difficult after this to write a commentary on 1 Peter in the traditional manner. I warmly commend this commentary."
