Come and See

Learning from the life of Peter

Stephen Cottrell

Currently out of print £6.99


When we look at the life of Peter, fisherman, disciple, leader of the Church, we find somebody who responded wholeheartedly to the call to 'come and see'. Come and meet Jesus, come and follow him, come and find your life being transformed. This book focuses on Peter, not because he is the best-known of Jesus' friends, nor the most loyal, but because he shows us what being a disciple of Jesus is actually like. Like us, he takes a step of faith and then flounders, and needs the saving touch of God to continue becoming the person he was created to be.

Come and See is also designed to help you develop a pattern of Bible reading, reflection and prayer. Twenty eight readings, arranged in four sections, offer short passages from the story of Peter, plus comment and questions for personal response or group discussion.

From The Good Bookstall - March 2011

First published in as On This Rock - Bible Foundations for Christian Living (2003). Reading, reflection and prayer are helpfully visited in this revision of a former 2003 publication that is an effective first reader to the life of a struggling, true, first-follower of Jesus. This compact guide to Lenten weeks is an able accompaniment to life and learning from the life of Peter.

There is a compelling reality to this discipleship journey in the breadth and searching in the New Testament sweep of scriptures offered here. These twenty-eight readings are accompanied by pithy, provoking and helpful resources for reflection. Clear and chewy!
