Filled with humor, wisdom and loving detail, the powerful story of Peter Marshall's life has touched the hearts and minds of millions of people. It is a book about love—the love between a dynamic man and his God, and the tender love between a man and the woman he married. It is also the gripping adventure of a poor Scottish immigrant who became chaplain of the United States Senate and one of the most revered men in America.
A Man Called Peter became the number-one best-seller when it was published in 1951, and around the world lives were changed by reading of the chaplain's remarkable faith. In the foreword to this book, Peter's son writes, "Even when [Dad's] words were preached 'secondhand'. . . in the movie version of A Man Called Peter, they had an amazing effect on people."
Through Peter's story and the compelling sermons and prayers included in A Man Called Peter, you will discover insight into God, man, and life on earth and hereafter. You will also be encouraged by the realization that "if God can do so much for a man called Peter, he can do as much for you."
Catherine Marshall (1914-1983), the widow of Peter Marshall, wrote more than twenty books, including the best-sellers Christy, Beyond Our Selves and Something More.

I saw the movie and having been completely entranced and inspired by it, knew I had to read the book. Of course there is much more detail in the book and so all the more packed with inspiration and insight. This is not your usual preacher. Besides his life being filled with adventure, struggle and success, Peter Marshall's preaching style was so different that often it was standing room only in the churches he pastored. The reason was not his eloquence or education alone, but a real and vibrant relationship with his Savior. He was known to make Jesus seem real to people as he preached and taught. People hungered for that same, passionate knowing of God. Catherine Marshall, his wife, did an outstanding job of telling the story of her husband's life, faith, and ministry. I couldn't put it down.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I picked this book up and couldn't put it down. The faith of Dr. Marshall, and his closeness to God challenged me to examine my own life as a Christian. There are some books that leave a lasting mark on you when you read them, and inspire you to higher limits. This book is one of those.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
