ABOUT THE BOOK: Most know the disciple Peter-bold, inconsistent, prone to rash remarks. Many know the transformed Peter-empowered witness, miracle-worker, missionary. Few, though, know the pastor Peter-faithful servant, patient teacher, protective shepherd. A Pillar's Legacy seeks to communicate the message of the often neglected epistles of First & Second Peter in a down-to-earth style suitable for all believers. It desires to present the principles of the epistles in an encouraging and thought-provoking manner. A Pillar's Legacy aims to maintain a balance in combining the context and background details of the text with a devotional perspective that offers thoughtful believers the opportunity to grow in their knowledge of the epistles. It covers many subjects including salvation, witness, suffering, false teaching, politics, economics, submission, Christian focus, and separation while at the same time seeking to uncover more of the contribution Peter made to early Christianity.
