A Month of Sundays: Thirty-One Days of Wrestling with Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John (Hardcover)
From the translator of The Message, thirty-one ruminations drawn from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Eugene Peterson was quite concerned about the language we use between Sundays. He strived for a continuity of language between the words we use in Bible studies and the words we use when we are out hiking, at work, or eating dinner with family. He illustrated this passion in his writings and weekly sermons. A Month of Sundays is a devotional collection featuring excerpts of Eugene's Sunday sermons arranged into thoughtful readings for every day of the month, drawn from the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The four gospels give us snapshots of the earthly life and ministry of Jesus. Dig deep into Eugene Peterson's thoughts regarding select passages, and discover clarity, insight, and wisdom in his distinctive style of earthy spirituality.
