Product Description

In this addition to the well-received Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament series, New Testament scholars Duane Watson and Terrance Callan examine cultural context and theological meaning in First and Second Peter.

This commentary, like each in the projected eighteen-volume series, proceeds by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Each contains informative outtakes, images and explanations of theological issues associated with the text. As the title of the series implies, these commentaries are oriented towards teaching the contents of the Bible. These are mid-level commentaries ideal for students whose aim is to achieve expertise or comprehensive knowledge of particular biblical book. Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight Watson and Callan offer in interpreting First and Second Peter.

Endorsements

"Duane Watson and Terrance Callan have written a solid, rhetorically informed commentary that fulfills the aspirations of the Paideia series--namely, a work that will be readable, informative, and serviceable for students of the New Testament. Their depth of scholarship on these works, gained from years of study and teaching, is now made accessible in one place. I look forward to recommending this work to my own students.
-Peter H. Davids,
visiting professor in Christianity, Houston Baptist University

Watson and Callan's commentary on 1 and 2 Peter provides a helpful combination of attention to the biblical text, ancient sources and context, and theological issues. This clearly written work will be appreciated by both pastors and students who want to learn more about these biblical texts, the contexts in which they arose, and their theological implications for the church today.
-Ruth Anne Reese,
professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary

Duane Watson and Terrance Callan, each of whom has written significantly on Second Peter, team up here to provide a fresh and coherent exposition of both letters--a most welcome contribution to Petrine studies and a valuable tool for reassessing the difficult question of the relationship between the two canonical letters bearing Peter's name.
-J. Ramsey Michaels,
professor of religious studies emeritus, Missouri State University

In an age of overly large volumes that easily swamp students with detail, Watson and Callan's tome on the Petrine Epistles offers the best of contemporary scholarship with concise precision. A masterful and complete commentary full of sound and sober interpretive judgment combined with blocks of contextual and theological insights, this accessible text will also aid the busy pastor concerned for faithful biblical exposition.
-Gene L. Green,
professor of New Testament, Wheaton College
