In The Friend Who Forgives, we read about the impatient, impetuous Peter and his faithful, forgiving friend Jesus.

Have you ever had trouble keeping control? Do you watch what you say? What about hasty decisions that you later regret? Peter can empathize! In The Friend Who Forgives, Dewitt Peters draws out some fleeting personality and contrasts it with Jesus Who Forgives – even if Peter denies him three times! During this retelling, soft memories are woven that we should also ask Jesus for forgiveness. We are all like Peter.

As always, we appreciate Echeverri's vivid illustrations, especially because they represent a more nuanced picture of the characters in the Middle East than the often strong white portrayals in biblical storybooks.
