Peter's perspective on grace helped first-century Christians live out their high calling, even amid satanic attack. This perspective can do the same for twenty-firstcentury believers. 'Carol Ruvolo's study of Peter's letters is exceptional: any Christian, new or experiencedor even curious unbelieverswill find the reading clear and inviting; and all will find it nourishing. Peter's robust faith in the face of persecution shines through Carol's pages. And the extensive exercises will help to shape the conscientious student into the image of Christ.'
