About-

A collection of twelve previously published academic essays on the Second Letter of Peter. The essays illuminate selected features of this somewhat mysterious and rather neglected part of the New Testament. They invite further exploration of these features and of others not yet illuminated.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“It would be difficult to find a more accomplished guide than Terrance Callan for a voyage to discover this often-unexplored New Testament letter. Thoughtfully stitched together in this volume, his collection of essays provides an in-depth study of 2 Peter: its literary style, its rich Christology and soteriology, its view of discipleship, and its relationship to other early Christian and Jewish texts.”

—Donald Senior, CP, Professor of New Testament and President Emeritus, Catholic Theological Union



“Callan’s voyage about 2 Peter is most notable for the freshness of his questions about the document, his impressive knowledge of the literary world to which it belongs, and his imaginative approach to old and new issues. While not a commentary, it eventually comments on the whole of 2 Peter. Callan has written a literate book, employing a new literary imagination and method.”

—Jerome Neyrey, SJ, Professor of New Testament Studies, University of Notre Dame



“While Callan’s essays range from the redaction critical to the socio-rhetorical to the text critical, they all have a basically theological interest: what is the theological purpose behind this editing, manuscript, or theological argument? . . . I recommend this work for those who wish to engage with and reflect upon the thought of 2 Peter.”

—Peter Davids, Chaplain, Our Lady of Guadalupe Priory, Georgetown, TX



“The essays range widely and comprehensively over classic hermeneutical questions, and engage 2 Peter with new perspectives and methodologies. The contents are also refreshing, for Callan often forges his own path through the dense woods of scholarship. A very useful volume for the classroom and more advanced study of a letter that intersects many facets of New Testament study.”

—Duane F. Watson, Professor of New Testament Studies, Malone University
