Perkins describes the search for the historical Peter and the influence his image has had in Roman Catholic and Protestant ecumenical discussions. Perkins argues that Peter should be viewed as a harmonizing figure who captures the Christian imagination not only because he is the most prominent of Jesus' disciples but also because his weaknesses and strengths present a character accessible to the average Christian.
-Publisher
