Modern Meditations on St. Pauls Letter of Freedom
Eugene H. Peterson
Like a skilled eye doctor, Eugene Peterson turns the lens that clears our vision and enables us to discriminate between reality and fantasy, to see what satisfies and what leads to bondage. Rebecca Pippert
For a culture awash in fantasies of freedom, we are conspicuously lacking in the experience of freedom. In Traveling Light, Eugene Peterson explores the free life in Christ that we must both receive as a gift and practice as a skill. In an engaging, often passionate dialogue in which Pauls letter to the Galatians faces off against the crises of modern life, Peterson offers both encouragement and challenge to men and women trapped in the anxieties and determinism of our modern age.
Eugene H. Peterson, a creative and prolific writer, was for many years pastor of Christ Our King United Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland. He is translator of The Message Bible and Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia.
