Peter

Peter

$35.99

Paperback
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 This volume, easily adoptable as a textbook, reviews the sharp dichotomy between Petrine & Pauline Christianity that was a staple of Protestant history throughout the nineteenth century, the contributions of Roman Catholic scholars to twentieth-century exegesis, & the new understanding of Peter produced by ecumenical dialog.
