Harassment and heresy, while familiar themes in Scripture, are also ever-present realities in the Church. Apart from Paul, no one knew this better than the apostle Peter. A victim of persecution himself (having written 1 & 2 PETER from a Roman jail cell), Peter urged his beleaguered readers to stand firm in joy and to persevere.
How is a believer to live the Christian life in a hostile world? Who is the true enemy of the faith? And what can Christians look forward to despite their momentary suffering? To these questions Peter gives compassionate yet candid answers.
In this sermon series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann looks at Peter's advice, affirmation, and admonition to his scattered readers abroad.
In addition to serving as the Senior Pastor at BridgeWay Christian Church in Derry, New Hampshire, Ronald H. Gann is the featured speaker on "Bridging The Divide" radio and author of various books on ministry and theology.
