Peter Hoover (born 1960) is an author familiar to many conservative Christians of Anabaptist and similar heritage in the United States, Canada and western Europe. He is a member of the non-sectarian Rocky Cape Christian Community in Tasmania, Australia. Born in Canada, Peter has also worked in Mexico, Costa Rica, United States, Chile, and Australia.

Hoover's books have focused on the stories of Christians in recent centuries who have most closely reflected the relationships, values, zeal and impact which Christians originally claimed in the New Testament and ante-Nicene period. His books include Secret of the Strength (What Would the Anabaptists Tell This Generation?), which is published in both English [1] a German edition in Europe (as Feuertaufe. Das radikale Leben der Täufer. Eine Provokation) [2], and an online Spanish edition. Also, he has written Behold the Lamb (The Story of the Moravian Church), and The Russians' Secret (What Christians Today Would Survive Persecution?)[3], and The Mystery of the Mark: Anabaptist Missions under the Fire of God [4].

In 2006, Hoover was featured on the American television program, Dr. Phil, for his involvement in an effort to find and recover the children of an American mother whose father was concealing them in a Christian community in Belize.

In 2010 Hoover was subject to a brain tumor. It was surgically removed in the Hobart Royal hospital on 14 July, taking away much of his ability to read and write, but he has since regained most of his former abilities.
