About this title

Synopsis:

Turning water into wine took Jesus a few minutes. Changing a reed (which ‘Simon’ means) into a rock (‘Peter’) took quite a few years. Which is the greater miracle, transmuting nature or transforming human nature? Many identify with Simon Peter’s weaknesses, not least his knack of opening his mouth and putting his foot in it! On one occasion he even swore that he didn’t know his best friend, just to save his own skin. Jesus taught this fisherman how to catch more fish, then how to catch people. He used that unruly tongue to preach the good news of his death and resurrection for the very first time, netting thousands for the kingdom of God. In this book David Pawson draws some unexpected lessons from Peter’s failures and successes for both our individual and corporate lives as part of the Church of which Peter was the original pastor.

About the Author:

David Pawson: born in 1930, was the son of a Methodist minister, his grandfather, a Professor of Agriculture. He began his career with a degree in Agriculture at Durham University. After completing an MA in Theology at Cambridge University, David became a chaplain in the Royal Air Force, before pastoring a number of churches in England including the Millmead Centre in Guildford which became a model for many UK church pastors. In 1979 David left Millmead to develop a wider international Bible teaching ministry. Millions of copies of his ‘Unlocking the Bible’ teachings have been distributed to over 120 countries. He is a writer who speaks with clarity and uncompromising faithfulness to the Scriptures. He is widely considered to be one of the world’s finest biblical expositors alive today.
