Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Missions of James, Peter, and Paul contains the table of contents, preface, a list of abbreviations and the list of contributors. Any evaluation of James is fraught with the basic difficulty that his perspective and personality are not represented directly within the New Testament. A case can be made for the argument that the Epistle of James represents something of both, but if so, it does so indirectly. In that source, as in the book of Acts and Hegesippus and Eusebius, James is taken up within the theological perspective of the works as a whole, so that it is difficult to sort him out from his hagiography.

Keywords: James; New Testament; Paul; Peter
