From the monastic devotion of the church fathers and mothers to the spiritual disciplines we espouse today, the church has always searched for ways to deepen discipleship and to grow in Christ. In the book that this discussion guide complements, In Quest of the Rock, the author delves into the source material, exploring Peter’s transformation from fisherman to apostle through the power of relational encounter.
As readers are empowered to see their own journeys in the light of Peter’s, they will recognize their disappointments and unfulfilled aspirations as invitations into the reshaping and healing of their own hearts. This is a powerful resource for all who desire to grow in Christ, as well as those involved in the discipling of others.
Intended for small group settings, this accompanying discussion guide journeys through each chapter of the book, to deepen the reader’s understanding and encourage fruitful, challenging conversation.
