Christians in a Hostile World

A Study of 1 Peter

How is today’s American church to live out faith in Christ in an increasingly hostile environment? In his first letter, Peter speaks to an audience that was experiencing persecution. His message to those dealing with far worse situations than ours helps guide us how to live well among those who don’t believe.

This study involves seven weekly three-part lessons with open-ended questions that challenge the student to think deeply about the Scriptures and her own life.

Do the study alone, with a partner or small group, or use it in your church-wide women’s Bible study.
