About the Book    About the Author

This being the second letter written by Peter, we see even clearer the heart of the writer (I would recommend reading I Peter before reading II Peter). In this short letter, Peter simply is extending both his helpful hands and his sincere heart. In this second letter written to the scattered aliens of present-day Turkey, we can clearly read that Peter is attempting to both calm his readers’ hearts by pointing them to Christ and prepare them for the trials that lay ahead.

As I relayed to you some important historical information from Wiersbe's New Testament Commentary as to the purpose of Peter's book described in the conclusion of my devotional on I Peter, Peter's reasons become all the more real. He simply desires his readers to be ready. Knowing that his own life was soon coming to an end he wanted to be all the more clear as to what the LORD has called us all to be (see 1:13-15) How? By focusing their attention on Christ.

Again, Peter shoots straight in this second letter, but with the arrows of a saint. He clearly cares for these people and desires them to know Jesus' desire for them. In this heart-felt extend of preparation we can glean much for our lives today. As we read through these words of the Apostle Peter, may we, too, be ready so that we are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
