1 Peter: Discipleship Lessons from the FishermanAn 144-page book by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson
The brash fisherman named "Rock," now matured, will help you grow in Christ
1 Peter is a brief letter -- only 105 verses -- but power-packed. The apostle, once a commercial fisherman in Galilee, is now in Rome and soon to be executed. He's less a braggart now, less impulsive. Time and discipleship have forged humility within him without destroying his boldness.
And in this maturity, Peter helps us to see Jesus more clearly -- as Lamb, Overseer, Sacrifice, and Chief Shepherd. As you study, you'll be refreshed with hope and joy. Struggling with temptation? Peter encourages you to holy living. Suffering for something you didn't do -- or perhaps did do? You'll find perspective and assurance. Peter gives us a clear vision of the Church, wisdom for marriage, instruction on spiritual gifts, encouragement to witness -- with gentleness -- and guidelines for church leaders.
1 Peter is explored in 11 lessons, each with probing discussion questions. The book can be used for personal enrichment, by small groups and classes, and for preparation by teachers and preachers.
