Abstract:

"This book is not a commentary. Instead, we want to offer some missional reflections on 1 Peter, to explore what the Holy Spirit would say to the Western church today through this portion of God's Word. Above all, we have tried to write a practical book that shows what everyday church and everyday mission might look like on the ground. In calling the church to everyday mission, we recognize that this is what many, many Chrstians are already doing: being good neighbours, colleagues, family members, doing good in the face of hostility, bearing witness to Christ in the context of ordinary life. Our aim is not to dismiss this. Quite the opposite. We want to celebrate it and put it back at the centre of the church's mission. And perhaps also give it more direction and show how it can be more intentional."--Introduction, page 11.
