      From the publisher:
      The adventures of St. Peter,
      the first pope — for children
      Most kids think of popes as old men who live quiet lives in the Vatican. In
      fact, danger stalks every pope. From John Paul II (who was shot) all the way
      back to the first pope, the men God places in charge of His Church have been
      hated and attacked for their goodness and for the good the Church does.
      These pages recount the adventures of Peter, the first pope, whose troubles
      began just days after Jesus returned to Heaven. When Peter preached, baptized
      three thousand people, and cured a lame man, soldiers threw him into prison.
      Set free by a judge, Peter preached again, won more converts, and got jailed
      again . . . and again.
      Finally freed by angels, Peter traveled throughout Asia, setting up many new
      churches. Then he went to Rome, the capital of the Empire, where he converted
      many and, doing so, angered the pagan emperor Nero. Nero’s soldiers threw many
      Christians to the lions. They arrested Peter, led him before a jeering crowd,
      and crucified him.
      Today, on the very spot where Peter was crucified, stands the most important
      Catholic Church in the world, St. Peter’s Basilica. Nearby is the Vatican, the
      Church’s worldwide headquarters, and for centuries home to the popes — men
      who are now known not merely by their chosen names but are also called “Peter”
      (to remind us that Christ Himself has placed them, too, in charge of His
      Church).
      Yes, as you’ll read in these exciting pages, Peter, the first pope, died (as
      will all who ever take his place). But each will be replaced by yet another
      pope, who will also be known as “Peter.” In this way, Peter became the man who
      never died, fulfilling the promise that Jesus made to him: “Thou art Peter,
      and upon this rock I will build my Church,” the Church whose origins are told
      here, and which will also never die.
