Peter is writing to believers that are trying to live for Christ in a culture that is becoming increasingly unfriendly to Christians.

Peter sees first-century society becoming hostile and knows that more is coming, so he writes this great letter of encouragement equipping the believers to stand in tough times and look to the greater glory that will be revealed. This series is for the faithful follower of Christ who hears the roar of Rome in the air but is determined to remain steadfast in Christ.
