After playing second fiddle to the apostle Paul for a long, long time, Peter has received increased scholarly attention of late. This book builds on the recent resurgence of interest in the apostle Peter. Nineteen internationally prominent scholars of early Christian history here examine and reassess the historical Peter and his significance in Christian texts from the first three centuries. Giving due attention to archaeological data and recent scholarship, the contributors offer a comprehensive view of Peter through analysis of both New Testament texts and later, noncanonical literature. Markus Bockmuehl concludes the volume by considering present-day questions about the role of Peter, popes, and church leadership.

Reviews

Journal for the Study of The New Testament Booklist "Applicable across the canonical post-canonical divide, this fascinating proposal relates to calls for the recognition of other forms of trans-textual 'discourse marker' in early Christian studies."Review of Biblical Literature "This remarkable collection of essays is enthusiastically recommended for its far-reaching scope and its foundational nature. . . . A springboard for anyone looking to research Peter so as to understand better the 'underestimated' and often-overlooked first apostle."Judith Lieu -- University of Cambridge "This rich collection of essays makes a significant contribution to the growing interest in the 'after-life' as well as the 'real life' of the founding figures of the Jesus movement and of early Christianity. The breadth of topics and the variety of scholarly perspectives hint at the lively conversations that lie behind the essays. Readers will find here much stimulation to probe further into the figure of Peter."
