Peter’s Song is a celebration of the very ordinary made extraordinary by the hand of God. Relive events in the Apostle Peter’s life as recorded in scripture, but seen through his eyes and those who may have witnessed the events with him.
Peter’s Song is set immediately after the crucifixion of Jesus and is peppered throughout with Peter’s reflections on times when he ministered alongside Jesus.
Peter’s Song looks at the humanity of the men Jesus chose to be his disciples and deals with the tragedy and humour of the various situations scripture places them in. The book builds to a crescendo of hope brought about by the transforming work of the Holy Spirit working in and through them as they continue with the ministry Jesus started.
Rob lives with his family in East Sussex, England. Rob became a Christian in 1983 at the age of 22 after experiencing a miraculous healing from a prolonged period of ill health. He has spent the years since that encounter seeking after the God that brought about such an act of grace in his life and in the process has served Him in various Church leadership roles ever since. Rob has a way of opening very familiar passages of scripture from a fresh new perspective; not to apply new meaning to them, but to make them relevant for today’s listeners.
