1 review for Equip

  1. Peter Brokaar (Centre Director, Ellel Scotland)

    I really enjoyed reading Peter’s new book ‘Equip’! I love how he writes with such clarity, depth and without overcomplicating anything. It has given me a better grasp on thinks like discipleship, Israel and the Kingdom of God. I personally don’t know of any other author who weaves these themes together so well. I have been recommending the book to others and expect I will return to it myself again and again!
