Do we maintain our faith in the face of persecution and adversity? 1 and 2 Peter is a letter written by Apostle Peter to believers who are facing extreme persecution and hardship as a result of their faith. It is a letter to encourage them to keep the faith and to remember their hope in the Lord Jesus Christ. And this book, 1-2 Peter And Jude: A 12-Week Study (Knowing The Bible), is an excellent resource for learning the truth from 1 and 2 Peter. This book's 12-week study guide is appropriate for small group discussion and can also be used as a devotional book.
