The three apostles Peter, Paul and John are the most important starting point for understanding the beginnings of Christianity.
Each brings a different background and language: Peter's Old Testament imagery, Paul's connection with Greek culture, and John's independent lyricism. This fascinating book paints a vivid picture of the three, exploring what they had in common as well as their significant differences, and demonstrating their continuing relevance today.
The authors start by discussing the pre-Christian context, and finish by tracing the esoteric streams of Petrine, Pauline and Johannine Christianity in the first few centuries after Christ.
They show above all that all three are needed to truly approach the reality of Jesus Christ.
