We all remember Simon Peter as the disciple the denied knowing Jesus, not once, not twice but three times before the cock crowed on the morning that Jesus was crucified. And we take a bit of pleasure in the knowledge that the disciples weren’t perfect – just as we never will be!!! But Simon Peter was so much more… and his life literally demonstrates the transformation from lowly fisherman to a great preacher for Jesus.
Now I am always looking for great books that my kids can use for Bible Study… and my older kids are a bit beyond blessed thoughts, coloring pages and word searches and the other available options for their age groups are all about “issues,” frankly I don’t really want them to be dwelling on the social problems of the world, some of them they haven’t encountered yet, when they could actually be reading and learning from the examples of one of the greatest disciples.
These books are fabulous for teens and tweens not to mention mother’s of a couple of kids (I loved them!). They would be fabulous for a teen Bible Study. The book are written in short sharp chapters, with boxes of info and snippets scattered throughout. Lots of goodies to refocus wandering minds!!! Each Chapter has a “Message for today” and a “Think Tank” with questions about the chapter to think about.
