But as adults, we understand that rules are for our protection … and that if we break God’s rules, we cause heartache and broken relationships. In this series, Andy Stanley explains God’s basic set of life rules, which, when lived, hold the power to improve your current relationships and mend hurting ones. Sessions: 1) Rules of Engagement; 2) Free to Forgive; 3) The Act of Acceptance; 4) It’s Your Serve; 5) The Courage to Encourage; and 6) I Submit.

He was quick-tempered and impetuous, but possessed a passion that would change the world. He left everything to follow his teacher, yet struggled with doubt and fear. Join pastor and author Adam Hamilton in this six-week journey, and take an in-depth dive into the life, faith, and character of Simon Peter. This six-session DVD was filmed on location in Israel and Italy, and shows key sites in the life of Simon Peter.
