Editorial Reviews

Review

'This series places the accent on 'theological' and reflects current interpretive ferment marked by growing resistance to the historical-critical project. It may be that scripture interpretation is too important to be left to the exegetes, and so a return to the theologians.' Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

From the Inside Flap

"Doug Harink's commentary on the Petrine epistles aptly demonstrates the guiding principle of the series to which this volume belongs: 'dogma clarifies rather than obscures.' While paying close attention to the biblical text, Harink also opens up for the reader interconnected vistas in patristics, speculative theology, ethics, politics, philosophy, and aesthetics, as well as 'some of the treasures of Orthodoxy.' The book is especially helpful in that it speaks to the generalist while also refusing to back off from some of the more controversial passages in these biblical books. Even where the reader does not agree, he or she will not be bored!"--Edith M. Humphrey, William F. Orr Professor of New Testament, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

"No theologian over the past decade has been more concerned to articulate the apocalyptic heart of the gospel faithfully than Doug Harink. In this commentary, Harink brings that concern to bear on the message of 1 & 2 Peter. The result is a passionate book that allows Peter to take his place alongside Paul as an apostle of God's world-transforming apocalypse in Jesus Christ. By way of insightful and provocative engagement with Petrine scholarship, contemporary theology, and critical theory, Harink brings the message of Peter into challenging conversation with the Constantinianism of contemporary North American culture. To those who feel acutely the weight of living as 'exiles of the Diaspora' in our culture today, the words of Harink's book will break forth as an indispensable, powerful witness to the decisive and liberating grace alone by which we live into the 'holiness and godliness' that Peter names as a sign of the coming new creation in Christ."--Nathan R. Kerr, author of Christ, History and Apocalyptic: The Politics of Christian Mission; assistant professor of theology and philosophy, Trevecca Nazarene University

A beautifully written and powerful commentary that shows that Christ's power is made perfect through the weakness of his exiled, alien people.

Hadn't heard of Douglas Harink before buying this commentary, but he does an incredible job of wading through 1 Peter as a 21st century Christian looking at it might mean for us to hear these words today. Can't recommend it more highly.

This was one of our textbooks in a recent seminary class ... Living Theology. The book is an interesting but not an easy read ... very scholarly. It provides a lot of thoughtful details which guide a person into an in-depth study of I and II Peter. It needs to be used, of course, alongside I and II Peter themselves, not instead of them. A good study book!
