In the book of 1 Peter, the apostle Peter addresses Christians as pilgrims, strangers who travel in this world toward another country. Immigrants know what its like to eat unfamiliar food, learn a new language, and be reminded that they came from somewhere else. Being away from home produces a variety of feelings, depending in part on the reason for our absence. The impulses of Christians as pilgrims in this world are familiar: run, retaliate, or relax. Dr. Kloosterman shows from I Peter how none of those responses provides an answer for our existence. We must learn the central lesson of all covenant history, and of all church history, which is to live as divinely different people. This book is an excellent resource for group Bible studies. Sixteen lessons, with study questions at the end of each lesson.
