Explains context of Peter's first letter to Gentile audience scattered around Asia Minor
Enables Bible teacher to explain relevance to today
There are commentaries, and there are books on preaching - but very few books that combine elements of both to enable the preacher or Bible teacher to prepare and present a series on specific sections of Scripture.
This series gives the Bible teacher suitable tools to understand the context of Biblical books; doctrinal themes; the methods of interpretation; the key teaching points and how to deliver that message to the audience.
Whilst very useful for preachers, this book is also aimed at enabling youth workers and small group study leaders have the confidence they need to teach Biblical principles and doctrine.
Teaching 1 Peter looks at the first letter from the Apostle Peter to a primarily Gentile audience scattered around Asia Minor. Angus enables the leader to explain the context of this letter and its relevance to a contemporary setting where Gentile Christians were surrounded by a pagan culture.
He also enables the leader to apply practical theology to specific situations that still affect the church today. This is the latest addition to the Teaching the Bible series.
Angus MacLeay is the Rector of St. Nicholas, a large Anglican Church in Sevenoaks, and is also a member of the Church of England General Synod. One of St. Nicholas' previous ministers was the poet, John Donne. The recent story of the church is told by the book The Church that went under.

The task of moving from the text of Scripture to clear and faithful exposition is challenging. This series of excellent guides aims to help the Bible teacher to observe what is there in the text, and prepare to convey its significance to contemporary hearers. In this way these volumes often do more than the weightier technical commentaries. It is like having the guidance of an experienced coach in the wonderful work of rightly handling the word of truth.

North India desperately needs men and women who will preach and teach the Bible faithfully and PT's Teaching series is of great value in encouraging them to do just that.
Isaac Shaw, Executive Director, Delhi Bible Institute, New Delhi, India
The need of the hour is Bible knowledge. When knowledge fails, faith fails, and we are shaped instead by cultural forces alien to God. This teaching series, written by skilled and trustworthy students of God's word, helps us to understand the Bible, believe it and obey it. I commend it to all Bible readers, but especially those whose task it is to teach the inspired word of God.
Peter Jensen, Retired Archbishop of Sydney, Sydney, Australia
The Teaching series is a great resource for Bible study leaders and pastors, indeed for any Christian who wants to understand their Bible better.
Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President, 9Marks.org, Washington, DC
