This Is True Grace
Sun investigates the coherence between the social behavioral instructions and the theological teachings found in 1 Peter. Engaging with the Balch-Elliott debate, she argues that the core question should not be whether Christians should separate from, or accommodate to, wider society, but whether their behavior is consistent with their ultimate allegiance to God. Sun convincingly demonstrates that the social distinctiveness of Christian communities was encouraged as a form of cultural and spiritual opposition to wider societal norms.
