The Doctrine of Salvation in the First Letter of Peter
Williams, Martin

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2011 pp. xviii + 322. £58.00

Series Information
Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series, 149


Description: The prevalence of salvation language in the first letter of Peter has often been acknowledged though rarely investigated in depth. In this 2011 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.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Hebrews and Catholic Epistles, 1 Peter, Literature
