    The most outspoken of the Twelve Apostles, Simon, later called Peter stands as a unique figure in history. To the Catholics, he is the first Pope, infallible and supreme among the disciples. The Protestants respect him, though many tend to think of him as a good ol' boy. If any of the twelve who followed Christ in the inner circle could be considered His best friend, likely, it would have been Simon Peter. ............. This was the man who alone among them dared to rebuke Christ; but he also made the declaration that was the cornerstone of the church. Peter displayed great valor and ignoble cowardice. Being impetuous was his greatest flaw, and greatest asset. Using the Bible, tradition, and secular history, Mr. Card makes a song of Peter's life. By using the popular Message Bible translation, he assures that the readers have no doubt of his meaning, however, he often cites scripture without the accompanying verse. Perhaps this is a clever way to get the readers to read their own Bible? ............. *** Whether this is true or not, reading A Fragile Stone will bring to life both the man and the times. It is plain to see that Simon Peter lived up to his call as one of the Rabbi's talmidin, and truly imitated his Master. ***
