Vox Petri: A Theology of Peter
Green, Gene L.

Eugene, OR: Cascade, 2019 pp. xxii + 485. $49.00

Description: Peter stands at the beginning of Christian theology. Christianity’s central confessions regarding the person of Jesus, the cross, salvation, the inclusive nature of the people of God, and the end of all things come to us through the apostle who was not only the church’s leader but also its first theologian. Peter is the apostle for the whole church and the whole church resonates with his theology. We sing his song, though we may not have glanced at the bottom of the page in the hymnbook to see who wrote the words and composed the tune. Peter is the “lost boy” of Christian theology, a person overlooked as a theological innovator and pillar, but his rightful place is at the head of the table. If we look closely, however, we may recognize that he has been seated there all along.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Mark, Acts, Hebrews and Catholic Epistles, 1 Peter, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Early Church Origins, Theological Approaches, Source Criticism, Theological Interpretation
