The game of SIMON SAYS illustrates the contrast between the clear teachings of the Word of God and the empty philosophy of this world:
"The Christian Life is a lot like that game of 'Simon Says.' Each believer will always be challenged by two commands. One command comes from the world and the other command comes from God. The believer must discern which is which and should always decide to obey the command from God."
Although SIMON SAYS is not a biography of Simon Peter, it reflects the significant difference between the empty purposes of Simon and the dedicated perspective of the man who became Peter-the rock.
Although SIMON SAYS is not a commentary on I and II Peter, it endeavors to show that Peter learned his lessons so well that he presents over 100 commands in his two short epistles. Dr. Drake has chosen 14 of those commands to present principles that Peter gives to God's legal aliens of every age.
