Winner of a Chicago Book Clinic 2004 Design Award!A Fragile Stone explores the dynamic life of the apostle Peter, revisiting well-known 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 know Peter," Card explains, "is so together we might better know 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.^TABLE OF CONTENTSForeword by Brennan ManningIntroduction: The Search for SimonPart One: The Stone1.

While the traditional adjectives applied to Peter--impetuous, headstrong, reckless and stubborn--find firm foundation in the Gospels, they threaten to reduce him to a caricature."The reader feels that Michael Card has stepped into the trembling Peter's sandals when the terrifying splendor of Christ's divinity shines through the rags of his humanity on Mount Tabor, when the stricken apostle implores Jesus, 'Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, ' when the unambiguous Peter confesses Jesus as the Christ, when the crushed Peter meets the eyes of his Master as the cock crows, when the spiritually intoxicated Peter is embraced by Jesus in the upper room, when the deliriously happy fisherman swims at breakneck speed to his Lord on the Tiberian seashore, when the fierce, primal energy of Peter propels him from h
