How God changes people - shaping us bit by bit into persons He can use - is the theme of this lively and inspirational study. To explore this theme, Jill Briscoe focuses on the shaping of one man - the apostle Peter. For no one better illustrates how God transforms lives than this man called Simon whom the Lord changed "by hook or by crook" into the man called Peter.
But this book is also about the unexpected tools Jesus used to shape this rough-hewn fisherman into a shepherd of souls - the same kind of tools He uses to shape us! His instruments in Peter's life were ordinary objects that became extraordinary teachers:
A BOAT on the Sea of Galilee
A net full of FISH
A RING that represented his marriage and family
A TOWEL used to wash his feet
A ROOSTER that reminded him of his failure
A FIRE that represented the Holy Spirit
CRUTCHES that reminded him of his own crippling weaknesses
A sheet full of PIGS that taught him the pitfalls of prejudice
Jill Briscoe's insights and outspoken insistence that there should be a visible difference between a Christian and the world make Peter's transforming experience akin to our own challenge to be God's called-out people today. Her down-to-earth narrative both challenges us and encourages us to be all we were meant to be. And each chapter comes complete with a study guide/worksheet to aid both individual and group study.
