The Making of a Disciple: A Study of Discipleship from the Life of Simon Peter

By / Bob Jones University Press / 2001

Runs on Windows, Mac, and mobile.


Print: $21.00


Peter was a man “subject to like passions as we are.” His life is a study in contrasts—resolutely defending the Lord one moment, vehemently denying him the next. But despite Peter’s inconsistencies, Christ molded him into one of the godliest disciples who ever lived.

In this study of discipleship, Ken Frederick draws relevant truths from the life of Peter to help us understand how to disciple other Christians. Although we will never walk on water, we will all experience the same type of struggles, victories, and “growing pains” in the Christian life. This book offers practical advice on how to disciple fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
