Product Details

Praise for the Print Edition

Wrestling with Alligators, Prophets and Theologians reveals the unique factor that in my opinion makes Peter a phenomenon: he combines the scholastic discipline of a professor with the rugged individualism of a farm-raised missionary and blends it with the restless intellectual curiosity of youth. Once Peter is convinced of the credibility of a new idea, he becomes the point man in its advocacy, even if it is politically incorrect and costly. His memoirs, like the man himself, are a burning light.

—Lance Wallnau, president, Lance Learning Group

Wrestling with Alligators, Prophets and Theologians reveals the heart of a reformer who has helped shape the destiny of the church. His humor, ability to overcome personal difficulties, and zeal for life will captivate your heart. I highly recommend this book for anyone serious about understanding God’s unfolding purpose for his church.

—Barbara Wentroble, president, International Breakthrough Ministries
