Item description for 1 Peter (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by John H. Elliott...

The significance of the First Letter of Peter for the formation of Christianity stands in sharp contrast to its brevity. John H. Elliott, a leading authority on this letter, brings its significance to life in this magnificent addition to the renowned Anchor Bible Commentaries. Elliott sets the letter into context, covering its literary, historical, theological, and linguistic elements. In detailed, accessible discussions, he draws on the latest research to illuminate the social and cultural influences on the Church in its initial years. Treating such important Petrine concerns as living honorably in a hostile society, finding meaning in suffering, and resisting social assimilation as the elect and holy family of God, the translation, notes, and commentary in this volume will help readers appreciate the powerful and enduring message of this fascinating letter.

John H. Elliott is Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of San Francisco, a Lutheran clergyman, and a cofounder of the Context Group. In addition to numerous publications on various New Testament writings, especially from a social-scientific perspective, his books on 1 Peter include The Elect and the Holy, A Home for the Homeless, and the commentary on I-II Peter/Jude in the Augsburg Commentary on the New Testament.

Publishers Description

Reviews - What do customers think about 1 Peter (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries)?

The Creme of the Crop by the Dean of Specialists on 1 Peter  Apr 2, 2007
While the comments of the other reviewers are well taken, and probably right, we are in Elliott's debt for placing his massive learning in the social sciences at our disposal in this brilliant commentary. Elliott has long been known as one of the premier interpreters of 1 Peter and his erudition shows here. This is a massive commentary and well worth the time and effort spent reflecting on, working through, and thinking about what Elliott has written.
1000 pages for 5 chapters  May 21, 2006
I don't know any more overdone commentary than this 1000 page book for only 5 chapters, do you?
Elliott has a hugely detailed knowledge of social and cultural customs and Greco Roman civil issues underlying 1 Peter's ideas and expressions. Yet he is not too complicated to read, although you will not like to use Elliott if you have two hours to study one chapter. Elliott conceives of 1 Peter as pseudepigraphic. I would recommend therefore Jobes 2005, who takes over the good things of Elliott but thinks 350 pages for 5 chapters will do.
Comprehensive  Jan 17, 2006
The new edition of the Anchor Bible Commentary on 1 Peter IS NOT the same as the previous edition. This is far more comprehensive, far more in depth. It is over 3 times the size of the last edition, but that does not necesarily make it an improvement. However the quality of the content is extraordinary. Elliot provides the best looks at 1 Peter that you will find anywhere. None of the other modern commentaries approaches its breadth of view. Nevertheless, depth of insight has not been sacrificed. Elliot provides fresh, new outlooks into this books of the New Testament. The only downside of the present edition is its daunting size, which may turn off some lesser-educated laity; but the content is no less accessible than any of the other books in the Anchor Bible series. This will be useful for pastors and laymen alike.
