From the Inside Flap
"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
