Publisher's Description

Of all the characters in the Bible, it is David who is most human. His life is lived on the "rough-edged actuality" of real life, and his relationship with God is an energetic one. Through the passions, the trials, and the lyrical poetry of this beloved figure, we gain powerful insights into the role of God in our own lives.

In this inspirational volume, Professor Eugene H. Peterson, translator of The Message, uses stories from David's epic life as vivid lessons in everyday faith and spirituality. Exploring David's experiences of friendship, grief, love, sin, and suffering, as well as sanctuary, beauty, and wilderness, he reawakens us to the enduring truths behind these beloved stories.

Author Bio

Eugene H. Peterson, author of The Message, a bestselling translation of the Bible, is professor emeritus of spiritual theology at Regent College, British Columbia, and the author of over thirty books. He and his wife, Jan, live in Montana.

Editorial Reviews

“Eugene H. Peterson skillfully uses the David story to talk not about David, but about you and me. Leap Over A Wall is the human story in all its wonder and terror and pity.”
“Leap Over A Wall brings King David’s life so close to us, each event a devotional experience, each application an experience that walks us step by step to David’s God and ours.”
“The author brings the Old Testament world revealingly close to our own century, and he makes vivid the notion that God’s purposes are worked out in the ordinariness of specific human lives.”
“This retelling and reflection on the life of David, the most completely portrayed character in the Bible . . . depicts an epic figure with the foibles of modern men and women. . . . This everyman analysis brings new life to the stories.”

    This is one of the best books I have ever read to not only give deep insight to the life of David but help me see that the beauty and strength of our Lord is with us no matter what we go through. I higly recommend it for everyone. You couldn't find a better study on the life of David or find help and wisdom of your own.

    Eugene Peterson is that rare blend of Scholar and Pastor; in reading this book one is struck by his ability to put the gospel into terms that can actually be lived out. He has no time for a hypocritical esoteric spirituality. For our spirituality is "fleshed" out in the most real sense in the midst of the "everyday". It is in such acts as changing a child's diaper that we practice spirituality...in essence this is Peterson's message (no pun intended).

    I was required to read this book for a class on the life of David. I picked it up and could not put it down. It was fresh and very readable. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to dig a bit deeper into the life of David.

    It gives good insights into the life of David and goes beyond the usual to draw out important details that helped me to understand some important passages in David's life.
