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.”
