“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 DisciplineAn inspiring memoir of faith, humility, and the joys and struggles of answering God’s call, from the most well-known pastor in the world—Eugene Peterson, translator of the internationally bestselling The Message. In this humble, personal chronicle, Peterson tells the story of how he stumbled into his vocation, and recounts his difficult journey to discover just what being a pastor really means. William Paul Young, author of The Shack, writes that “Eugene Peterson excavates the challenges and mysteries regarding pastors and church and gives me hope for both…. This a must read for every person who is or thinks they are called to be a pastor and for every person who has one.”
