"F.B. Meyer's devotional studies on biblical characters reflect a rare depth of spiritual experience. These great figures were not so different from ourselves--sometimes weak, indifferent, willful. Yet they had their moments of faith, humility, and courage, and God was able to use these for His greater purposes. God's faithfulness, which not only accepts but transforms such inconsistency, calls us to more effective Christian living.
The life of Peter comes closer to us than any of his fellow apostles. Drawn from the ranks of very ordinary fishermen in an obscure village on the Lake of Gaililee, Peter is so human, so much like one of us in his weaknesses.

Meyer was a popular convention speaker at Northfield in the United States, Keswick, England and Portstewart, Northern Ireland. Meyer was a man with a compassionate heart, prolific pen and graceful style.
