Filled with humor, wisdom and loving detail, the powerful story of Peter Marshall’s life has touched the hearts and minds of millions of people. It’s a story about love, the love between a dynamic man and his God, and the tender love between a man and the woman he married. It is also the gripping adventure of a poor Scottish immigrant who became chaplain of the United States Senate and one of the most revered men in America.

A Man Called Peter became the number-one bestseller when it was published in 1951, and around the world lives were changed by reading of the chaplain’s remarkable faith. Through Peter’s story and the compelling sermons and prayers included in A Man Called Peter, you will discover insight into God, man, and life on earth and hereafter. You will also be encouraged by the realization that “if God can do so much for a man called Peter, he can do as much for you.”

    " I throughly enjoyed the novels Christy and Julie, but I have not had a chance to read A Man Called Peter. I did have a chance to watch the movie when I was younger before I knew about the book and was moved by how much this man took on in such a little amount of time. This is a biography of Catherine Marshall's husband life and his path with GOD. It show how strong his faith and personality was, but at the same time he was a humble man. This is a must read for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 1/30/2014

    " It is a lovely story about Peter Marshall who became the Senate Chaplin in the 40's. Unfortunately, only about 10 pages focuses on that detail of his life, the rest is devoted to how he got there and what an amazing person he was. It was a little too devoted to how amazing he was, I would have enjoyed a more realistic look at the man and seen his faults and how, despite them he became successful. However, if you want a sweet love story this is one. "
