Following on from his book – Becoming Fully Human – Patrick Whitworth introduces us to the Apostle Peter and the difficult path he had to follow as the church’s first leader – thrust into leadership by the mission of Christ to ‘feed my lambs’.
As a leader and minister it is unlikely that Peter would have got through a selection conference for any of the established churches – yet he led that church to what it could be today. Peter was called – was chosen – was selected to grow in the faith into which he was commissioned with the other disciples. This book takes us through that long and sometimes painful affirmation, the difficulties and disasters, the challenges and the penance – the end result being an example of how we should all as ministers, whether ordained or baptised, live our Christian lives. Scripturally based and a very interesting read!
