If someone were to be banished to a desert island and could take only one of the epistles in the New Testament as a companion, 1 Peter is perhaps a natural choice to make. Comprehensive in its theological understanding of Jesus and his work, practical in its application of Christian principles for a positive way of life in a hostile world, and full of warmth and encouragement for strangers and pilgrims who live by faith and hope, it contains a remarkable amount of basic Christian teaching in a highly compact form. This course takes listeners through the text of the letter, discussing the problems of interpretation and paying particular attention to the question of the relevance of its teaching for Christians today.
