About-

Peter the Rock is a series of studies of basic Christianity based on the New Testament accounts of Peter in the Gospels, Acts, and Letters. Because his stories are in all four Gospels, Acts, in Paul’s Letters, and with First and Second Peter in the New Testament, Peter provides a fascinating avenue for lacing together the New Testament with all its variety. Conversion, discipleship, servanthood and leadership, failure and recovery . . . Simon Peter has lessons for us in each area. His story cuts across the New Testament more than any other figure except for Jesus Christ. He is far from perfect, an ordinary man in so many ways. We can relate. But God does extraordinary things through Peter.

Uses:

—great, widely-tested, proven material for adult education and small group study; good questions at end of each chapter

—study resource for preachers and teachers

—alternative perspectives for New Testament scholars to think about

Endorsements & Reviews-

“In a near conversational patter that does not jar in print . . . Peter the Rock will help many ordinary Christians aspire to extraordinary heights in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ.”

—Dale Sanders, Eternity Magazine

“Peter’s strengths and weaknesses are highlighted, both to good advantage . . . A welcome addition to the biographical material on Peter, this book is not just a re-run of the same old stuff.”

—John Kennington, Conviction Magazine

“Every Bible student must respect and share David Gill’s enthusiasm for Peter . . . Gill has a talent for drawing insightful applications from Peter’s history. Readers will particularly appreciate the treatment of Peter’s denials (’Autopsy of a Defeat’) and his restoration (’Peter’s Stunning Comeback’).”

Moody Monthly

“David Gill’s approach is unlike other authors who read discipleship from their own perceptions. . . . Peter the Rock offers valuable ground upon which to build a bridge between Protestantism and Catholicism . . . Laymen and clergy alike will definitely appreciate David Gill’s presentation.  This is a book that cannot only help us stand in the shadow of a mighty apostle, but also challenges us to cast the same shadow.

—Rev. Harald Haugan, Rector, All Souls Episcopal Church, Jacksonville, FL
