    Trials are coming but Be Hopeful, where there is Christ, there is hope. 1 Peter is a tough book since many Christians are going through trials. Peter wrote to them because he knew "fiery trials" we're about to begin regarding the Christian faith that Paul defended (which he was arrested and released.) But he was arrested again by deranged Emperor Nero who accused Paul and the Christians for the fire in Rome. Both Peter and Paul were slained by Nero. Peters letters were tremendously helpful for C Trials are coming but Be Hopeful, where there is Christ, there is hope. 1 Peter is a tough book since many Christians are going through trials.

But he was arrested again by deranged Emperor Nero who accused Paul and the Christians for the fire in Rome. Both Peter and Paul were slained by Nero. Peters letters were tremendously helpful for Christians who suffered during the reigns of Trajan (98--117), Hadrian (117--138), and Diocletian (284--305). Christians today can learn the value of Peter's letters when they encounter their own "fiery trials." Be encouraged --we have God's grace and salvation. More to come . . .

    Peter wrote this book to Christians who were being persecuted. As such, it give us today hope in the face of any persecutions we may be facing now or in the future. Mr. Wiersbe did a great job of explaining how everything that Peter said applied to Christians today. He explained, from the Greek words used, exactly what the meaning of the more difficult words meant. I recommend this book of 1 Peter as an excellent study for today in the face of possible persecution to come. I also recommend Mr. W Peter wrote this book to Christians who were being persecuted.

    Another great bible study in the "Be" series. Mr. Wiersbe is a great commentarian and has written some excellent devotionals. This one on First Peter is welcome. That book of the bible is so full of rules and references about submission and suffering that it can be quite daunting to find the hope. This bible study definitely helps to clarify many points in the book. I liked how it went verse by verse and then had the overview of the chapter at the end of each study section rather than taking one Another great bible study in the "Be" series.

I liked how it went verse by verse and then had the overview of the chapter at the end of each study section rather than taking one theme and picking and choosing the verse. This is definitely a study/commentary about 1 Peter alone. It is a good study for individual or small groups. I have the 2009 edition

    Be Hopeful by Warren W. Wiersbe is part of his renowned and wonderful Be series digging deeply into each book of the Bible. Be Hopeful focuses on the book of 1 Peter. The book offers historical and spiritual insight while going through the book verse by verse and really breaking it down for readers. Each chapter ends with study questions for further reflection. Peter's message in this book was one of hope, despite the coming persecution he foresaw for followers of Christ, and every word of it is Be Hopeful by Warren W.

It's an excellent study, and I hope to read more of the series.

    Wiersbe reminds us that fiery trials will come to all believers. The question is not if but when. This letter is meant to encourage the reader. This epistle of Peters tells the reader that attitude is important. We are to have a patient attitude toward the lost and an expectant attitude toward Christ and a fervent attitude toward the saints. Suffering is mentioned often by Peter. "...suffering does not automatically bring glory to God and blessing to God' people." Christians are kept for Glory a Wiersbe reminds us that fiery trials will come to all believers. The question is not if but when. This letter is meant to encourage the reader.

Suffering is mentioned often by Peter. "...suffering does not automatically bring glory to God and blessing to God' people." Christians are kept for Glory and are being prepared for Glory. In the fiery trials believers are to examine their lives.

    Weirsbe is such an application friendly guy, which makes him my best friend. Not only does he present the text as understandable, but he also never waters the Scripture down - unadulterated, pure and alive!

    The boys and I used this as our devotional this summer. It took us a while, but Weirsbe guided us through I Peter and helped us to understand this letter in the context of the rest of the Bible. This commentary helped generate some great discussion, and helped us to pray in some specific ways.

    A good devotional commentary on the New Testament book of First Peter. Practical for the layman but with insight and outlines for the Sunday School teacher or pastor.

    We all face troubles and difficult times. Peter gives us hope and advice as we move through these troughs. As usual Warren Wiersbe brings out the subtle and historically appropriate wisdom in Peter’s words. A challenging read well worth the effort.

    Just like all of Warren's books it was inspirational and in depth for living a Christian life.
