Endorsements: 

“Carol Ruvolo’s study of Peter’s letters is exceptional: any Christian, new or experienced—or even curious unbelievers—will find the reading clear and inviting; and all will find it nourishing. Peter’s robust faith in the face of persecution shines through Carol’s pages. And the extensive exercises will help to shape the conscientious student into the image of Christ.”  -— Kris Lundgaard

“Carol Ruvolo’s studies on 1–2 Peter may read easy, but they run deep. If you desire to raise your level of trust and commitment in Christ, you will find these studies to be theologically sound and provide powerful, practical guidelines.”   -— Joni Eareckson Tada

“If you’re tired of cotton-candy Bible studies, this book will nourish your soul. Who says women can’t do or don’t love theology?” —Elyse Fitzpatrick

About the Author

Carol J. Ruvolo (BS, MBA, University of New Mexico) has taken graduate-level courses at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and several courses from Ligonier Ministries of Canada’s School of Theology. She has been teaching the Bible since 1983 and writing books on biblical themes since 1998. A longtime resident of Albuquerque, she now speaks at women’s conferences and retreats around the country. Though a devoted churchgoer from childhood, she did not experience God’s saving grace until she was an adult. Soon after her conversion, she quit her job at a national defense laboratory and began devoting her time to raising her daughter and studying the Scriptures. During the two years, she taught for the first time and realized that teaching is her spiritual gift.
