Format: Hardcover
I bought this book because I like Peterson's The Message and thought it would be interesting to hear his perspective on being a pastor. This is the most complete, insighttful, and real book I have ever read on the topic. Peterson is personal, honest, and doesn't give easy answers for anything. What he does offer is his journey as a pastor and what he has learned along the way. Short chapters and an easy writing style make it very readable.

Format: Hardcover
While it seems that much of the organized church is focused on leadership issues, Eugene Peterson fills an enormous void in addressing the role and function of a pastor, who in Christian circles, is the person on the ground with the people. This "pastor" theme runs through many of his numerous books, as he normally writes as a pastor to pastors. It is fully developed in this memoir, as Peterson describes the evolution of his own development and understanding of the care and cure of souls. He provides insight into both his life and his thinking, and much wise advice to pastors. This is a must read for anyone in pastoral positions, as well as those seeking to understand the pastoral role, and also for those who desire to make Christian spirituality relevant to ordinary citizens.

Eugene Peterson is a modern day sage for the church. He exudes wisdom and experience. My suggestion is to read everything he writes and model your life around much of his. You obviously need to be yourself, so don't try to be Eugene or imitate him - but he has much wisdom to impart for every Christian, but especially for every pastor. Everything you read in this book flies in the face of today's notion of a successful pastor. Learn from him and let's together be the people of God on mission with God.

This was a book my husband needed , - - to read , - - then attend a Pastor Conference with his area Pastors. After a couple of days of reading, he was commenting on it being quite interesting and remindful of many of his own experiences. I told him there was a second book to the theme, and he said we may have to get it.

Format: Hardcover
Peterson shares his journey to becoming a pastor, as well as sharing numerous memories of individuals (some of them very strange) he encountered during his life that influenced his spiritual life. He brings to the table the truth of what it means to be a pastor - the good, the bad and the ugly. Humorous stories, sad stories, real stories. A good read, but be aware that you will not find the deep theological writings found in Peterson's others works. However the title of the book states it rightly - it's a memoir - it's basically about him.
