Insights on 1 Peter: Hope Again: When Life Hurts and Dreams Fade


From: £15.00


Suffering . . . temptation . . . injustice . . . despair. Life often feels like a series of slaps in the face, and the last thing we want to do is keep going. Even “baby steps” look like giant leaps and “one day at a time” seems to drag on and on. How can we experience the abundant life and the fruit of the Spirit when we’re pummelled by the pain and suffering of the fallen world?

Insights on 1 Peter unites the timeless words of the apostle Peter and the timely wisdom of Charles Swindoll to bring you hope:

  • When the worries of life and uncertainties of the future quash your joy
  • When you’re reeling under Satan’s attacks and temptations
  • When life just isn’t fair and you suffer injustice at the hands of the godless
  • When your marriage or family life appears to be fading

True hope can illuminate even the deepest crevices of despair. This classic series on 1 Peter will turn your whole mind-set away from pop psychology and “me-centred” theology and toward the true hope that comes through trusting Jesus Christ—who alone can give us reason to hope again.
