John Hibbert is the son of a Yorkshire coal miner and since early childhood has had a passionate desire to serve God. He is a husband, father, grandfather and company director, but above all, a preacher of the Gospel. His world travels, together with his knowledge of the Scriptures, have inspired in him a godly compassion for his fellow men, together with an understanding of the views and feelings of others. His deep insights into human weaknesses and failings have given him an empathy with Simon Peter and an ability to draw from Peter's experience profound lessons which have the potential to benefit us all. This is his third semi-fictionalised work. His first two, "The Virgin & The Dragon" and "We are Brothers" deal with the lives of the Virgin Mary and the patriarch Abraham.
