    1 thought on “Upon This Rock: The Life of St. Peter”

    1. This is a fictionalized and vivid life of Saint Peter and the early church leadership struggles. I loved this book for the fact that it gave us the world of the early Christian church and community. Mary Magdalene does not come off well in this novel but St. Peter also has an ego. Still, the teachings of Christ lead St. Peter as he grapples with the mantle left to him by Jesus. I enjoyed this novel of faith and perseverance.

    2. Very good historical novel on life of St. Peter. Makes good use of historical material to present a compelling story of the circumstances surrounding the emergence of the Christian faith in the first century Roman world. Imaginative and insightful regarding the dance between faith and doubt, belief and trust.
