1 Peter, 2 Peter


Geneva Series of Commentaries


‘A judicious and gracious Scotch commentary, after the style of Dickson and Hutcheson.’ — C.H. SPURGEON

Book Description

Alexander Nisbet’s commentary on 1 & 2 Peter provides an outstanding practical treatment of Peter’s epistles. Like the other volumes in this series, Nisbet’s commentary on 1 & 2 Peter is an ideal aid for preachers, teachers, group leaders and all students or readers of the Bible.

Perhaps of all the apostles, most Christians find themselves most readily drawn to Simon Peter. His failure, restoration and subsequent usefulness provide hope for those who face testing and temptation. Despite that, Peter’s twin epistles are seemingly given less attention than many other sections of the New Testament. However, they continue to speak with power and relevance, providing encouragement and assurance from one who himself needed both. These epistles give basic instruction in Christian living and provide clear teaching on false doctrine, and are therefore essential letters for Christians today.

    The few contributors to this series of Commentaries (being Hutcheson, Dickson, Fergusson and Nisbet) are each and every one of them exceptional. The verses are written with the commentary immediately following. Each of the points, which obviously results from his balance between “knowledge of the entire Bible with its doctrines, and affection,” from prayer, meditation on the Scriptures, and close relationship with his Lord, making this book a treasure. There is a level of teaching that is truly teaching and not puppeting from others from a lack of internalisation of Biblical truth. Basics and advanced doctrines are routinely explained rather than presumptuously passed over. These and have furthered my knowledge in the way his deeper understandings of the Bible bring out points I’ve never considered nor heard in sermons or other commentaries. The book is such that I wanted a few of them to give away for this Christmas 2023 to my friends who aren’t afraid of the older but more expressive language, and intelligent but more spiritual commentary.
