Few Christian writers today bring scriptural truth into everyday life like Eugene Peterson. As the creator of The Message series, the 20-million-selling translation of the Bible in contemporary idioms, Peterson has helped overly-familiar passages to be rediscovered in surprising newness. Now he brings some of his most thought-provoking meditations into a concise and captivating collection of daily devotions.
