Winner of a Chicago Book Clinic 2004 Design Award! A Fragile Stone explores the dynamic life of the apostle Peter, revisiting well-kwn passages and revealing unexpected insights. Author Michael Card sketches out Peter's life, showing how the impetuous fisherman of the Gospels was transformed into the pivotal leader of the early church. The ultimate reason for getting to kw Peter, Card explains, is so together we might better kw Jesus. For the story of Peter is the story of Jesus. Perhaps, if you and I do our best, the same will be said of us someday. Peter's life serves as a model for Christian discipleship, offering hope that we likewise can be changed as Jesus calls us to follow him.
