It brings to light several context clues in the Gospels that I otherwise might miss when reading them with my 21st century eyes. It made me appreciate the personal touch Jesus brought to his ministry and how every person's story matters.
Unfortunately, no. I loved the content of the book, but it was often overshadowed by Eldredge's rather smug and patronizing performance. Felt like I was being read a bedtime story by Goofy the Dog.
Maybe pick up a text version instead...
I would highly recommend this book to anyone, especially those who are struggling with their faith, or otherwise feel disappointed with God. Peterson does a fantastic job of putting my challenges in perspective, and he gave me someone I can really relate to in Jeremiah. Just knowing how vividly Jeremiah expressed his discontent to God made me really appreciate the honesty of scripture, and how God is able to handle any criticism I can throw at him. That alone is a credit to his love which could put him in a paradigm all his own.
The narrator is pleasant to listen to; very straightforward without being overbearing.
Run with the Horses is easily one of my all-time favorites.
