“If anyone knows how to be a pastor in the contemporary context that person is Eugene Peterson. Eugene possesses the rare combination of a pastor’s heart and a pastor’s art. Take and read!” (Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline)
“I’ve been nagging Eugene Peterson for years to write a memoir. In our clamorous, celebrity-driven, entertainment culture, his life and words convey a quiet whisper of sanity, authenticity, and, yes, holiness.” (Philip Yancey, author of What Good is God)
“A good book for folks who like pastors. And a good book for folks who don’t. The Pastor is the disarming tale of one of the unlikely suspects who has helped shape North American Christianity.” (Shane Claiborne author of The Irresistible Revolution)

What a story of a Pastor and Writer

I love his story, so real, so vulnerable. I was stunned when I heard his dark moments in the career where he had a sexual scandal and an disappointing comment from his daughter on the 27-day-in-row meeting schedule.

MUST Read for those whose vocation is, Pastor

This book was thought provoking, humbling and real. It was as if I was sitting on the porch with Pastor Peterson and he was telling me stories of walking this life out with God! As young pastors, my husband and I have gone through seasons of "The Badlands"! Peterson's experience made me laugh and cry as I related to his seasons in ministry. Living this life out with God's people is what being a pastor is all about. I appreciated how he portrayed this and brings out what's important.
