Any wise leader, then, can learn from Saint Peter-a man who knew his own incompetence, trusted in Christ, and met his deficiencies through the insights of God's Word. In this comprehensive handbook, Peter Lillback, president of Westminster Theological Seminary, uses the apostle Peter's life and writings to guide men and women through the details and daily challenges of leadership in any arena.

Practical spiritual exercises help to put the lessons of each short chapter into action.
