About-

Drawing on relevant New Testament and extra-biblical texts, Peter arises as the preeminent guarantor of the early Christian witness, especially as he displays the striking confluence of Christology, identity, and character formation.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“The burgeoning field of Petrine studies has recently cast up several important monographs on the apostle Peter. Dr Bayer’s welcome addition appeals to the full range of New Testament materials, and carefully distinguishes between his ‘non-transferable’ functions as part of the historical "bedrock" that mediates Jesus to later generations, and his “transferable” functions which model the character and virtues of genuine disciples of Christ. Worked out across the field of New Testament sources, that simple distinction proves to be both evocative and seminal.”

—D. A. Carson, PhD, Research Professor, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS), Deerfield, Illinois, USA

“Usually when one hears the term apostolic, one thinks of the historical and doctrinal roots of the faith, especially when combined with the image of bedrock. Hans Bayer gives us a fresh look at doctrine and history by pointing to these elements in Scripture's presentation of Peter. He shows how the themes Peter raises contribute to and even aim at character, identity, and spiritual development. What a refreshing new take on these themes. When biblical teaching, identity, and ethics come together, it makes for powerful teaching.”

—Darrell Bock, PhD, Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies and Executive Director for Cultural Engagement, Howard G. Hendricks Center for Christian Leadership and Cultural Engagement at Dallas Theological Seminary, Dallas, Texas, USA
