How to Keep Calm and Carry On: 1st Century Wisdom for 21st Century Living
In his famous poem, "IF", Rudyard Kipling extolled the virtue of knowing how to "keep your head when all about you are losing theirs--and blaming it on you." This book is for people who want to be like that. The principles shared are derived from the writings of Simon Peter, an early follower of Jesus Christ. Jesus saw Simon's potential from the beginning. That's why he gave him such an ironic nickname -- ROCK (Peter). Simon was anything but "solid" for quite awhile. But God knew what he would become. And when Simon Peter was much older, it fell to him to comfort and calm thousands of Christians who lived in fear of harassment, persecution, and even death. The affirmation "Keep Calm and Carry On" originated in a morale campaign in Great Britain in the build up to World War Two. These days, however, the phrase has become part of popular culture. This book describes ancient concepts that are ever new. Practical, in-depth, and thoroughly biblical, "How to Keep Calm and Carry On" will challenge your mind and comfort your heart.
