This is a book of moments...the moments that describe and illuminate the verbs of fatherhood. In our society, mothers mother. They care for, nurture and love their children in ways that give meaning and understanding to the verb “to mother.” When we talk about a man fathering a child, the intended meaning is usually that the man sired a child. What are the verbs that describe what happens each day for a father? The verb of being a dad is now daddin’. This book blends stories and insights of being son to a father and father to three sons, over the years of havin’, learnin’, listenin’, lovin’, playin’, fishin’, growin’, leavin’ and livin’. Those comprise the verbs and the chapters of this father’s view of living and loving the role of dad. This is, at its core, a tribute to my parents and my sons.

Sessions with Peter is a ten-lesson study unit designed to provide a compelling study of 1 and 2 Peter. Each session is followed by exercises for spiritual reflection that allow for a deeper experience of the scriptural passages. These exercises can be used by seminar leaders during preparation and group discussion, as well as in individual Bible study. Sarah Jackson Shelton takes readers on a journey through Peter's letters to the churches in exile. Through these sessions, Shelton connects today's readers of these passages to the tangible encouragement that these letters offer. Just like the example of Jesus, Peter reminds us that our call is to be found faithful to God's grace in spite of persecution, temptation, alienation, or social oppression. As it was to its original audience, Peter's encouragement for us to stay true to our Christian beliefs is a welcome drink of cold water in what can often seem a spiritual desert.
