Eugene Peterson, well-known author and Presbyterian pastor, died in 2018. In this book editor Paul Pastor has compiled unpublished material from Pastor Peterson’s archives. Much of it comes from a weekly letter he sent to the members of his congregation. All the entries are short, ranging from several pages to less than one page. It could easily be used in a daily devotional time.
As always, Peterson’s work does not disappoint. He had a way with words and the ability to use fresh analogies and creative ways to illustrate biblical truths. He challenges the reader to examine his or her life in the light of the Gospel and to grow more and more Christlike. These essays are brief and easy to read, but deep, and they are filled with the hope and excitement that should characterize the Christian journey.
The writings are grouped into five themes:
*On Prayers and Praises
VERDICT: 5 STARS. I loved it!
