The Book of 1 Peter, nestled between James and (you guessed it) 2 Peter toward the back of the New Testament, is perhaps not as widely read as some of the Pauline epistles, like Romans. But this five-chapter book is packed full of applicable and practical advice for Christians today, whether church members, pastors, husbands, or wives.
Peter wrote this, his first letter, to the pastors of congregations in the Roman province of Asia Minor. These congregations were new, made up largely of Gentiles, and were suffering significant persecution because their new lives in Christ were starkly different from the lives they used to live — the lives their neighbors, family, and friends still lived in the corrupt culture around them. Paul encourages these people to hold fast to their faith and continue to do good works despite the hate around them.
