Today we continue the Great Baylor Giveaway with installment number three. Baylor has been re-publishing some classics of New Testament studies with new forewords. Today we get to give away two works that are giants in the field. The first casts an especially large shadow: Rudolf Bultmann’s Theology of the New Testament. I continue to hear consistently that, to this day, no one has written a better theology of the New Testament than Bultmann. Here you get both volumes in a single book with a new foreword by Robert Morgan.
The second classic is Oscar Cullmann’s Peter: Disciple, Apostle, Martyr. With the work of Markus Bockmuehl and the late Martin Hengel, recent years have seen a renewed interest in the preeminent disciple. This stream of research goes back to Cullmann, however, and this re-publication includes a new foreword from my Doktormutter, Helen K. Bond. Helen is also currently co-editing a new collection of essays on Peter from the 2013 conference on Peter at the University of Edinburgh. I was there, and the conference was replete with references to Cullmann’s classic.
