Product Description

We all long to live life at its best-to fuse freedom and spontaneity with purpose and meaning. Why then do we often lives our lives so humdrum, so unadventuresome, so routine. Or else, so frantic, so full of activity, but still devoid of fulfillment? How do we learn to risk, to trust, to pursue wholeness, and excellence-to run with the horses in the midst of life?

In this fresh update of a spiritual classic, Eugene Peterson offers his profound reflections on the life of Jeremiah the prophet, now expressed in the language of The Message and set in a contemporary context through a new preface. In these reflections he helps us ponder anew what it means to be fully and genuinely human. Filled with humor and self-revelation, his writing helps to set the course for us in the quest for life at its best.

Publisher's Description

In Jeremiah 12:5 God says to the prophet, "If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?" We all long to live life at its best—to fuse freedom and spontaneity with purpose and meaning. Why then do we often find our lives so humdrum, so unadventuresome, so routine? Or else so frantic, so full of activity, but still devoid of fulfillment? How do we learn to risk, to trust, to pursue wholeness and excellence—to run with the horses in the jungle of life? In a series of profound reflections on the life of Jeremiah the prophet, Eugene Peterson explores the heart of what it means to be fully and genuinely human. His writing is filled with humor and self-reflection, insight and wisdom, helping to set a course for others in the quest for life at its best.

    This is so timely. Our group is about to begin Peterson's bible study on "Excellence...run with the horses". Look forward to all that God will reveal through this study.

    A good book.

    If a you have ever questioned your efforts in ministry, this is the book to read. As usual, Peterson has a unique way of connecting with the Bible character - in this case, Jeremiah - and relating his possible emotions and frustrations to this century ministry.

    This is really an excellent book. It brings to life an O.T. book that is frequently overlooked and not understood. We are using it in a Bible study group and one of the other participants says that it is the best book he has ever read.
