Upon This Rock

A Novel of Simon Peter, Prince of the Apostles
A novel by

Peter, the Man and the "Rock"
This was the man to whom Christ spoke those twelve famous words that were to change all history - "Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church" - the man who went on to guide the new faith of Christianity through violent years of conflict within the church and barbaric persecution from without.

To this dramatic and inspiring story Dr. Frank G. Slaughter brings the full power of his imagination, skill, and scholarship. He re-creates the life of Simon Peter, a man so simple, yet so complex, that he has challenged the imagination of writers for centuries. In this biblical and biographical novel, Dr. Slaughter brings to life the tempestuous age in which Peter lived, a time of rebellion, of tyranny, and of spectacular Roman brutality.
