Catechesis for a Secular Age: The Wisdom of 1 Peter
Assuming we live in a secular age, could it be that 1 Peter is a New Testament Epistle with a timely message “for such a time as this”? We will consider how the wisdom of this book can give direction to the content and contours of disciple-making for Christian communities that foster spiritual maturity for the church that is thoroughly present in and to its social context.
