Comment: I appreciate Barclay's unique insights on Greek words, but clearly his teaching about a "second chance" is NOT sound doctrine! Be an Acts 17:11 Berean with Barclay. See discussion of his orthodoxy especially the article "The Enigmatic William Barclay".
Here is an excerpt to give you a sense of what you can find in these devotionals from multiple sources -
HOW TO GROW IN GRACE (2 Peter 3:18) HABIT: FAITHFULNESS - It is a law of nature that where there is no growth, there is no life. That principle applies as much to our spiritual lives as it does to plants and children. The way we grow in our spiritual formation is to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). But what does that mean? If grace is entirely God’s gift to us, how can we take the initiative to “grow in grace”?
As the nineteenth-century theologian Archibald Alexander explains, “Just so far as any soul increases in spiritual knowledge, in the same degree it grows in grace.”* To grow in grace requires that we be diligent in the acquisition of spiritual knowledge, both experiential and intellectual, that allows us to grow in wisdom—knowledge of our spiritual state, knowledge of God’s Word and knowledge of Christ. (Read the full devotional) (See also Archibald Alexander's full essay entitled 2 Peter 3:18 - Growth in grace)
James Rosscup gives Bigg's commentary on 1 Peter high marks (and he also recommends 2Peter but no additional comments): "This is probably the second best older study on I Peter from the standpoint of the Greek text. Selwyn is the other. As other ICC works, it deals with details of philology, grammar and possible views on problems." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)
John Cereghin - A most thorough commentary on the Greek text. He defends Petrine authorship (242-247); urges the translation “our God and Savior” (250-252); teaches baptismal regeneration (260ff); holds it probable that Peter “received every one of St. Paul’s Epistles within a month or two of its publication (301); maintains that the “faith” was a “body of doctrine” (325).
Charles Spurgeon regarded Burkitt's commentary as a "goodly volume," and recommended "attentive perusal" of it.
JOHN CEREGHIN - from wayback site
Click critique of his theological persuasion.
James Rosscup - This old, conservative Wesleyan Methodist work is good devotionally and aggressive for righteous living. Laypeople can find it still valuable today. It is Arminian in viewpoint and thus helpful, for example, in showing the reader how this approach deals with texts involving the eternal security question. The work contains much background material from many sources on all books of the Bible.
Spurgeon - Adam Clarke is the great annotator of our Wesleyan friends; and they have no reason to be ashamed of him, for he takes rank among the chief of expositors. His mind was evidently fascinated by the singularities of learning, and hence his commentary is rather too much of an old curiosity shop, but it is filled with valuable rarities, such as none but a great man could have collected....If you have a copy of Adam Clarke, and exercise discretion in reading it, you will derive immense advantage from it, for frequently by a sort of side-light he brings out the meaning of the text in an astonishingly novel manner. I do not wonder that Adam Clarke still stands, notwithstanding his peculiarities, a prince among commentators. I do not find him so helpful as Gill, but still, from his side of the question, with which I have personally no sympathy, he is an important writer, and deserves to be studied by every reader of the Scriptures. He very judiciously says of Dr. Gill, “He was a very learned and good man, but has often lost sight of his better judgment in spiritualizing the text;” this is the very verdict which we pass upon himself, only altering the last sentence a word or two; “He has often lost sight of his better judgment in following learned singularities;” the monkey, instead of the serpent, tempting Eve, is a notable instance.

CHARLES R ERDMAN
John Cereghin - Brief conservative comments. He defends Petrine authorship (109); holds that “the divine choice and call do not make human effort unnecessary” (117); teaches the premillernnial coming of the Lord (127); thinks that the “elements melting” does not mean literal fire but judgment (132)
James Rosscup - Though this work is generally helpful on historical background, it is often not of great assistance on the original text or problem passages. It skips over these many times. It is generally conservative, but not always. The value is greater on some books because the authors have done an excellent work: Kellogg on Leviticus; Blaikie on Joshua and I, II Samuel; Plummer on the pastorals, James and Jude. Some sections are by radical liberals, for example George A. Smith on Isaiah and the Minor Prophets. By and large, the student will do better to use a detailed set like The Expositor’s Bible Commentary plus individual best works on the different Bible books or sections of Scripture.

EXPOSITOR'S GREEK TESTAMENT Commentary on 2 Peter - R H Strachan
Hiebert - Greek text. Important for linguistic study of the epistles. Defends Johannine authorship. The viewpoint is essentially conservative.
Rosscup - This is a thorough exegesis of the Greek text. It is considered to be one of the standard tools for exegetical study.
John Cereghin - Technical commentary on the Greek text. He denies the authenticity of II Peter (83-105); admits Christ is called God (123); gives background of the Greek words and phrases; holds that the Parousia is both a judgment on the wicked and a triumph for the kingdom (146); admits that Paul’s Epistles are classed with the Old Testament as Scripture (147), holds that II Peter borrowed from Jude (225); thinks that the reference to “angels” goes back to Genesis 6 through the Book of Enoch (239ff).

JOHN ANGELL JAMES
Published 1871 - Probably best older commentary on prophetic passages as it tends to interpret more literally.
James Rosscup - This is a helpful old set of 1863 for laypeople and pastors to have because it usually comments at least to some degree on problems. Though terse, it provides something good on almost any passage, phrase by phrase and is to some degree critical in nature. It is evangelical....Especially in its multi-volume form this is one of the old evangelical works that offers fairly solid though brief help on many verses. Spurgeon said, “It contains so great a variety of information that if a man had no other exposition he would find himself at no great loss if he possessed this and used it diligently” (Commenting and Commentaries, p. 3). Things have changed greatly since this assessment! It is primarily of help to pastors and lay people looking for quick, though usually somewhat knowledgeable treatments on verses.
Spurgeon - A really standard work. We consult it continually, and with growing interest. Mr. Fausset’s portion strikes us as being of the highest order.

JOSEPH B MAYOR
Rosscup: Mayor, J. B. The Epistles of Jude and Second Peter: The Greek Text with Introduction, Notes and Comments. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1979. - This is quite a good older work on the Greek exegesis by the man who did an outstanding commentary on James. Mayor is more for serious students who know the Greek and are ready to read more technical detail on verses without being overcome.
D Edmond Hiebert - This massive volume contains an unsurpassed accumulation of details concerning these two epistles, setting forth parallels to the language from all Greek literature. The work of a painstaking liberal scholar, the volume is a mine of information for the diligent, discerning student.
J R MILLER
- 2 Peter 3:1 Devotional - I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance. - It is well that our minds shall be often stirred up and kept in remembrance of things we ought not to forget. Jesus recognized this when He gave the Lord’s Supper. We cannot conceive how much the Communion has done through the Christian centuries to keep the name of Christ precious in this world of care and sin. Some one visiting the studio of an artist observed some highly colored stones lying on his table. When asked why he had these stones always before him, the artist said it was to keep his eye up to tone. For the same reason we need to keep before us always high ideals of life. Otherwise our minds are apt to drift away from the things that are best. Some one says that the little sentence, "That will do," has done more harm than any other sentence in the English language. Being satisfied with the thing that merely "will do" is fatal to our doing the best. It is well, therefore, to have our pure minds continually stirred up by way of remembrance, "lest we forget."
John Cereghin - A liberal interpretation. He thinks that II Peter was a forgery written in the second century (173ff); admits the writer called Christ God (177); holds that cleansing comes through baptism (182). The upshot is BE A BEREAN with this commentary!

They defend Petrine authorship and authenticity (ixiii); favor the view that Christ is called God (2); stress universal redemption (43); argue that the phrase “other scriptures” shows Paul’s Epistles were ranked with the Old Testament (71).
James Rosscup - Many authors contributed to this work that had the aim of giving preachers material on introduction, verse by verse exposition, a section on homiletics, and a section of collected homilies (outlines, etc.) by various preachers, which can stimulate thought.

NATHANIEL M WILLIAMS
John Cereghin - Williams, Nathaniel Marshman, Commentary on the Epistles of Peter, An American Commentary, 1888. Quite full but concisely written; a rewarding exposition by a conservative Baptist scholar.
This commentary goes verse by verse, phrase by phrase. Very nice.
