Explanation - The following list includes not only commentaries but other Christian works by well known evangelical writers. Most of the resources below are newer works (written after 1970) which previously were available only for purchase in book form or in a Bible computer program. The resources are made freely available by archive.org but have several caveats - (1) they do not allow copy and paste, (2) they can only be checked out for one hour (but can be checked out immediately when your hour expires giving you time to read or take notes on a lengthy section) and (3) they require creating an account which allows you to check out the books free of charge. To set up an account click archive.org and then click the picture of the person in right upper corner and enter email and a password. That's all you have to do. Then you can read these more modern resources free of charge! I have read or used many of these resources but not all of them so ultimately you will need to be a Berean (Acts 17:11+) as you use them. I have also selected works that are conservative and Biblically sound. If you find one that you think does not meet those criteria please send an email at https://www.preceptaustin.org/

Be hopeful (1 Peter) by Wiersbe, Warren Or here - Be hopeful
Bible Exposition Commentary - New Testament - Wiersbe
With the Word by Wiersbe, Warren 430 ratings Old and New Testament.
Wiersbe's Expository Outlines on the New Testament by Wiersbe, Warren W
Cyril Barber - This is a book of exceptional merit. Pastors, missionaries, and Christian workers will profit from its use. Wiersbe introduces each book of the NT, provides an outline, and then furnishes his readers with a chapter-by-chapter discussion of the contents. The homiletic style is a “plus.” Recommended.
First Peter by McGee, J. Vernon'
First Peter in the Greek New Testament for the English reader by Wuest, Kenneth
See another online site that allows copy and paste
James Rosscup - Later available in paperback, this is one of Wuest’s better works on a New Testament book. It is based on the Greek text though presented so that the English reader can have a lucid exposition. The word studies are sometimes good even if brief and aimed for simple use.
First & Second Peter by Barbieri, Louis
Cyril Barber - An excellent volume to place in the hands of laypeople. Barbieri makes available a clear, thematic, biblically sound exposition of the text.
James Rosscup - A 126-pp., brief exposition by a former professor of Bible at Dallas Seminary. Barbieri surveys with some reference to historical setting and awareness of Greek, dealing concisely with certain of the problem passages. The work is geared for devotional reading or a quick summation for lay Bible studies.
The First Epistle of Peter : an introduction and commentary by Grudem, Wayne (from Tyndale NT Commentary series)
Cyril Barber - Replaces the handy, readable and reliable work by A. M. Stibbs and A. F. Walls (See this work below). Grudem discusses the text and provides numerous valuable insights into the writer's theme and theology. A most important asset is the author's use of extra-biblical literature
James Rosscup - An evangelical work which is at many points a good one, informative about views and helpful in the Greek. He holds to double predestination in 2:8, and says that God destined the stumbling and disobedience of the unsaved (p. 106). At 3:19–20, he believes the spirits in prison are unsaved humans of Noah’s day, who are now in prison. He has a special appendix going into the “spirits” passage at some length. His work replaces the former contribution by A. M. Stibbs and Andrew Walls. He favors traditional conservative views or, in the “spirits” case, his 36-page discussion takes one of the conservative options.
The First epistle general of Peter; by Stibbs, Alan M.
James Rosscup - Stibbs has done a fairly thorough and discerning work. This is a very good commentary on the English but based on a careful study of the Greek.
Hope in hurtful times : a study of 1 Peter : Bible study guide by Swindoll, Charles
New hope for life's challenges : reflections on 1 Peter by Swindoll, Charles
The message of 1 Peter : the way of the cross by Clowney, Edmund P
Cyril Barber - Clowney is a master in the art of homiletics and expository preaching. In this work he places before his readers a devoutand reliable commentary on Peter's first letter.
The communicator's commentary. James, 1, 2 Peter, Jude by Cedar, Paul A., (Now published as The Preacher's Commentary)
The Expositor's Bible Commentary - 1994 edition - Abridged - New Testament - Blum, Edwin. “I and II Peter,” in Expositor’s Bible Commentary,
James Rosscup - A perceptive evangelical work by a good scholar who offers help on problem verses and explains much of the material in a worthy way.
1 Peter; by Best, Ernest
Cyril Barber - 'First published in England in 1971, this competent study has only one major drawback: it is based on the text of the RSV Users, however, can still keep the Greek text before them as they gain insights from Best's exposition
James Rosscup - Best taught at the universities of St. Andrews and Glasgow, retiring in 1982. He concludes that Peter did not write the letter but that it came from pseudonymous authorship in the Petrine school (p. 63) between A. D. 80–100 (64) from Rome (65). Best has stimulating remarks on many verses, e. g. 1:5; 2:2, 3. His systematic and somewhat detailed comments on 3:19 conclude that Christ went prior to His resurrection to preach to angelic spirits in their prison a message of salvation which they possibly rejected (or else the passage is not clear as to the result), linking the text with bound angels in II Peter 2:4; Jude 6 and I Enoch. 10ff. This is at many points a good commentary even though rather brief in many instances. Many will not be able to follow his preferred view and defense of it on 4:6: Christ offered the Gospel to those after their deaths who had physically died prior to His death, who never had the opportunity to hear it when they were alive. For that adds up to a “second chance,” and Best’s answers to objections appear to be rather lame.
Trust and obey : a practical commentary on First Peter by Adams, Jay Edward (Well known nouthetic counselor)
The first epistle of Peter by Cranfield, C. E. B
James Rosscup - Cranfield is an outstanding exegete and offers comments of a critical, exegetical nature that are concise but helpful. One could wish so great a master had said more detail, as he does on Romans.
I & II Peter and Jude : introduction and commentary by Cranfield, C. E. B
The first epistle of Peter by Davids, Peter H New International Commentary on the New Testament. or here The first epistle of Peter
Cyril Barber - "This commentary . . . is comprehensive, up-to-date, and well-balanced. It adopts a moderate but enlightened approach to the interpretation if 1 Peter and will be a boon to all students of the NT, to teachers, and to pastors." --Joseph A. Fitzmyer.
James Rosscup - Davids is known for his fine commentary on James. Here he has a 42-page introduction that reviews issues in an evangelical manner and discusses scholarly literature. A 266-page commentary follows, in which he capably handles the Greek and deals with the different views on problem passages.

1 and 2 Peter, Jude by Hillyer, N (New International Bible Commentary)
Commentary on First Peter by Leighton, Robert, (See note below on this work in other formats)
A commentary on the Epistles of Peter and of Jude by Kelly, J. N. D. (John Norman Davidson)
Cyril Barber - First published in 1969. This commentary treats the text in a detailed and concise fashion. The thematic unfolding of each writer's material is highly commendable, and the word studies drawn from early Christian and pagan literature enhance the overall value of this commentary.
James Rosscup - This is one of the better commentaries for the serious student. Kelly shows good scholarship and insight, and usually is helpful on problems. He has taught at Oxford University. He posits a date of A. D. 64 for I Peter but is not firm on authorship by Peter. He feels that Peter did not author II Peter, but that it was written later (ca. 100–110). But he is excellent in exegesis of the text and grappling with issues and views. On many verses he has a lot to contribute.
The First epistle of Peter : revised text, with introduction and commentary by Johnstone, Robert
Cyril Barber - These concise studies faithfully expound the Greek text and provide a solid foundation for a series of relevant messages. Works of this nature are rare and should be obtained and used by every Bible-teaching preacher

Halley's Bible Handbook Henry H. Halley - (2000) 2720 pages (much larger than original edition in 1965 and no time limit on use). (Halley's Bible handbook : an abbreviated Bible commentary - one hour limit 1965 872 pages)
Rosscup - A much-used older evangelical handbook bringing together a brief commentary on Bible books, some key archaeological findings, historical background, maps, quotes, etc. It is helpful to a lay Bible teacher, Sunday School leader, or pastor looking for quick, pertinent information on a Bible book. This is the 72nd printing somewhat revised. Halley packed in much information. Unger’s is better overall, but that is not to say that Halley’s will not provide much help on basic information.
The Shaw Pocket Bible Handbook - Editor - Walter Elwell (1984) 408 pages.
"This hardback is small in size but packed full of content: Brief summaries of every book of the bible, cultural, archaeological and historical info, word definitions, pictures, maps and charts." Worth checking!
