Product Description

Because he plays such a prominent role in the New Testament and the tradition of the church, the apostle Peter has been the focus of much scholarship over the centuries. One wonders whether there can be anything more to say about Peter. Indeed, there is. In Four Times Peter Richard Cassidy takes a narrative critical look at Peter in the story of each gospel individually (rather than studying Peter via a side-by-side analysis of the gospels). Cassidy looks first to the character of Jesus in each of the gospels and then to the group of apostles as a whole before turning to Peter.In the end, Four Times Peter allows an intriguing portrait of this apostle to emerge. Readers discover a portrait of Peter that would have been familiar to the earliest Christian communities. And it is this ancient portrait that gives modern readers a refreshing new sense of Peter.

Editorial Reviews

A must read for beginners and an excellent refresher for all those who already know and possess a deep appreciation for the four canonical gospels.

Comptes Rendus

It shows a depth of research and has some fine exegetical insights.
The Furrow

[A] particularly valuable and thought-provoking contribution to the study of the Gospels because it raises crucial questions about the ways in which a person or event is perceived to create meanings.
Toronto Journal of Theology

. . . inspiring.
The Way

This book is to be recommended as a work that has its intended audience very clearly in mind. It is highly suitable for use with college students pursuing a course in the study of the New Testament, as well as by Bible study groups seeking a way into a study of the Gospels themselves. Through this study of the role of Peter in each of the Gospels, new questions will arise in the minds of the students both in class and in discussion groups. The final chapter of this book is without doubt the most stimulating. Without doubt, this chapter alone is worth the price of the book.
Review of Biblical Literature

This is a great scientific work of an expert Richard J. Cassidy, a priest and professor of Sacred Scripture at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Michigan. . . . this is an important simplified but rich book for all who want to know more.
LIVROS NOVOS

This small masterpiece is a valuable addition to studies of Peter and of the four Gospels. Worth rereading and keeping on hand as a resource, it would work very well in academic and pastoral situations.
