The Ministry of Peter the Chief Apostle

Post by Minyan Man » 11 Aug 2018, 10:30

(I looked to see if anyone has posted a review for this book & couldn't find one.)
This book is the product of a Sidney B Sperry Symposium at BYU.
It deals with the life, ministry & times of the Apostle Peter.
Each chapter has a different author & topic. You can jump around depending on the topic or subject you're interested.
The first chapter hooked me. The title is: Fallible but Faithful. By: Brent L Top.

In his introduction, he said:
My heroes are not perfect, Jesus Christ excepted. They have faults and foibles, frailty and fallibility--like me. That endears them to me. They have faith and faithfulness. That inspires me. Their faithfulness with fallibility, devotion despite deficiencies, gives me hope. Unfortunately, Latter-day Saints are not immune to unhealthy hero worship. Some expect perfection from their heros, whether they are prophets, apostles, bishops or even college professors.
Has anyone else read it?
What do you think?

I know this post is about a month old, but that book sounds interesting.
