Dickens famously characterized the era about which he wrote as the “best of times” and the “worst of times.” The same could be said about the era in which the apostle Peter wrote his letters. And it could also be said about our world today. So how do we as Christians survive and thrive in such a world? Peter raised, and responded to this question in his two epistles. We will study those two epistles in depth, line by line, and use what the Apostle says as we strive to experience God’s best in a world which is all too often at its worst.
