This was so amazing I'm not going to attempt to describe it. For it is meant to be experienced! If you have found yourself here...being connected with this 'conversation' then trust me, and take it as an indication that it's not by chance you found it and buy it. You won't be sorry. Rather, you'll thank God above for leading you to it.

Eugene Peterson at his most practical

Would you listen to The Wisdom of Each Other again? Why?

This is an easy book to listen to in bits and pieces in between other audio books, since it is a collection of letters written from Peterson to a fictitious old friend, Gunnar. Each letter has enough to mull on in its own right, so they make for great listens on short trips around town. And the wisdom of these letters is something to come back to again and again. I've read the book at least four times before I listened to the audio book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wisdom of Each Other?

I loved his suggestion that 70-year-old Gunnar have the youth group over to prepare, cook, and eat a meal together, mentoring through casual conversation over kitchen work instead of hyped up games and motivational talks.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

He has an earthy voice which lends warmth to the letters.
