About the Authors
  • The prevalence of salvation language in the first letter of Peter has often been acknowledged though rarely investigated in depth. In this book Martin Williams presents an account exploring the concept of salvation in this theologically rich letter. He brings together the disciplines of hermeneutics, New Testament studies, and systematic and historical theology in order to explore the language of salvation which resonates within the text. The book also elaborates on a methodological level the segregation which has arisen between biblical studies and theological studies. In doing this, Williams identifies a basis for how there can be interaction between these two different viewpoints. This book will be a valuable resource for students and scholars interested in the exegesis and theology of 1 Peter, the doctrine of salvation and biblical interpretation.

    • Proposes a method of the theological interpretation of scripture, extending ideas of what it is and how it can be done
    • Bridges the gap between biblical studies and systematic theology, proposing models to enable this
    • Provides a comprehensive study of the concept of salvation in 1 Peter

    'I would recommend this monograph to graduate students interested in a methodology for relating biblical and systematic theology and/or those looking for technical exegetical discussions of text related to salvation in 1 Peter.' Biblical Theology Bulletin

    'In this self-described theologically oriented study, Williams provides a detailed exegesis of select passages in the First Letter of Peter that concern the nature of salvation articulated in the epistle.' Kevin B. McCruden, Religious Studies Review
