“Here, as elsewhere. Elliott expertly joins the findings of social-scientific research with the insights of literary and theological analysis to clarify the `good news' that is proclaimed in this often-overlooked New Testament writing.”---Victor Paul Furnish. University Distinguished Professor of New Testament Emeritus, Southern Methodist University.”Affirming that 1 Peter represents from beginning to end a coherent and integrated line of thought, Prof. Elliott seeks to show in these two essays how this pastoral letter, forged to respond to the alienated situation of its readers, employs the conceptuality of the moral discourse and pivotal values of honor and shame that reigned in its contemporary world. The book is an excellent introduction to Prof. Elliott's seminal work in applying social-scientific analysis of this New Testament writing, and will richly reward its careful reader.”---Paul J. Achtemeier, Jackson Professor of Biblical Interpretation Emeritus, Union Theological Seminary, Richmond, VA”[This volume] reveals the letter in its own context, in such a way that we can appropriate its message and values into our own.”---Carolyn Osiek, Professor of New Testament, Brite Divinity School
