Saint Peter’s Principles
Leadership for those who Already Know their Incompetence
All thoughtful leaders can admit experiences of ongoing incompetence. We run into dilemmas, decisions, and even debacles that make them question how they became leaders in the first place.
When we look at the Apostle Peter, however, we see a great leader who engaged with his weaknesses and knew his shortcomings. By following his example, we become better leaders in any arena. Saint Peter’s Principles is an insightful study of these features.
Seminary president Peter Lillback’s profound treatment of more than 100 principles drawn from the Apostle Peter helps you to think through your:
- management style
- and more
Practical spiritual exercises put the lessons of each short chapter into action. It’s a book that brings joy to our hearts, guidance to our lives, and help to our service.
