Good.   [5253] 

"In this volume the attempt is made to take such facts, in the life of one of the most eminent of the apostles, as are furnished by inspiration, (and, of course, are of unquestionable authority,) and weave them into a connected narrative; exhibiting the peculiar features of the individual's character, and illustrating them by the principle incidents in his life....The author has not aimed to prepare a book for children....His purpose, therefore, has been to make the history of Peter interesting and instructive to all sufficiently advanced in years and intelligence to read it profitably, in its original form, as part of the sacred record." - Preface.
