About the Author

Larry R. Helyer is emeritus professor of biblical studies at Taylor University. He is the author of Exploring Jewish Literature of the Second Temple Period and The Witness of Jesus, Paul and John, both from IVP Academic.


"Larry Helyer's book on the life and theology of Peter fills a recognized gap in scholarship. Under one cover we are treated to the story of Peter in the New Testament and accounts about Peter in postcanonical documents. In addition, Helyer's study of the theology of Peter is both scholarly and accessible to readers, showing that he is concerned about the message of Peter for today's reader. Helyer's scholarship, fairness and devotion to the message of Peter all shine through in this volume."--Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Larry Helyer's thorough survey of Peter as disciple, church leader and pastoral theologian offers fresh perspective on many familiar New Testament passages. It also serves as a reliable guide into some of the less known territory found in the Petrine epistles. Helyer's faithful Bible exposition is enhanced by his knowledge of ancient Jewish, Greco-Roman and early Christian literature. He has produced a study that is both informative and rich in practical application."--Timothy Wiarda, professor of New Testament studies, Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary
"Seasoned biblical scholar Larry Helyer has produced a wide-ranging, synthetic and theologically rich exploration of Petrine themes in the New Testament and the early church. Written from a standpoint of faith and commitment, and with a clear desire to hear the texts, this book is at once informative and edifying."--Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Perhaps the primary significance of Helyer's work is the role it plays in the contemporary renewal of interest in the person and theology of Peter, the Rock."--Gene L. Green, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, December 2013
"Written out of the IVP Academic stable, you expect this to be a scholarly work and it does not disappoint. . . . Like a famous painting which you think you know well, this is a book which forces you to go back to the original picture and see for yourself. It's not easy to make an overly academic treatment flow well on the page. Our author pulls it off in a masterly way. But you must be the judge of that."--Peter Baker, Evangelicals Now, June 2013
