Winner of a Chicago Book Clinic 2004 Design AwardA 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.

Review quote

Down-to-earth and insightful, A Fragile Stone offers a heart connection to a gospel story that many long-time Christians are without. Michael Card's forward portrayal of Simon Peter's emotional life reflects a more personal image of what it means to befriend Christ and to find identity in him.--Shannon Whiting, urbana.org, February 21, 2008
