Most of the time, what we need to help us through the struggles in our lives is not the advice of an expert but the wisdom of a friend. Through this series of eloquent letters written to a life-long friend, author Eugene Peterson demonstrates friendship as a means to Christian maturity. The topics covered in this warm and highly personal correspondence are broad and varied, but one thing comes through with constancy and clarity: there is great value in a wise, experienced friend to help us see more clearly and to strengthen our growth in faith and godliness.
The practice and power of spiritual friendship.
Eugene H. Peterson is the author of numerous books, including A Year with Jesus, Reversed Thunder, Leap Over a Wall, and Answering God. He is also the translator of the bestselling Bible translation The Message. He is professor emeritus of spiritual theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia.
