In Pursuit of Peter
In Pursuit of Peter is a first-rate introduction to the life of the preeminent apostle of Jesus. Filmed on location and based on competent scholarship, it is both informative and entertaining. Highly recommended!

I was happy to endorse the newly released documentary series In Pursuit of Peter, hosted by my friend Dr. Con Campbell, which explores the life of the Apostle Peter. You can watch the trailer and read a description of the series below. You can purchase the DVD here. Individual episodes are also available to stream on Amazon Video.
“How did Peter transform from an uneducated fisherman into one of the most celebrated and beloved Jesus-followers in history? New Testament scholar Con Campbell wanted to find out. It’s one thing to read about people in Scripture. It’s another thing to trace their life histories to more fully understand their backgrounds and the profound effect Jesus had on them. Con invites you to join him in his pursuit of Peter. Explore the places where Peter lived and traveled, starting by the Sea of Galilee where he labored as a fisherman–an unlikely disciple, but purposely called by Christ. Continue the journey to Jerusalem, Turkey, Rome, and other locations where Con meets people who provide insights into Peter’s passionate personality. You’ll see the life of Peter unfold through Scripture, interviews, and stunning on-location footage.”
