These daily online studies are adapted from our Quiet Time Bible Guide. The studies go through the Old and New Testaments in just over two years. The approach taken by our quiet time Bible studies does not include answers. The goal of the study is to help you dig into Scripture for yourself. You can go deeper using a commentary, Bible background guide or Bible handbook.
For more context before you begin studying, read this introduction to the book of 1 Peter.

"Peter," said Wendy the comforter, "I should love you in a beard." Mrs. Darling stretched out her arms to him.
"Keep back, lady, no one is going to catch me and make me a man." (James M. Barrie, Peter Pan [New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1911], p. 228.)
