Series The Wisdom of Peter

This series of 10 conversations focuses on the story and reflections of one of Jesus’ most committed, emotional, and impulsive disciples. The intent is to find personal insight in what the Apostle Peter learned after experiencing the worst personal failure of his life. When Peter denied ever knowing Jesus— just a few hours after boasting that he was ready to die for his Teacher, he must have thought his life as a disciple was done. Yet in some of his last written words, Peter showed that he had found a way forward in the Spirit and ways of Christ. With a timeless voice of maturity, Peter urges his readers to express their faith through seven essential virtues— each of which becomes a critical link to a life of Christ-like love.
