  • Beautiful Outlaw: Experiencing the Playful, Disruptive, Extravagant Personality of Jesus

    Reading the Gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off. The result is a dry, two dimensional person doing strange, undecipherable things.

    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Eldredge’s performances?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe pick up a text version instead...

    In a series of profound reflections on the life of Jeremiah the prophet, Eugene Peterson explores the heart of what it means to be fully and genuinely human. His writing is filled with humor and self-reflection, insight and wisdom, helping to set a course for others in the quest for life at its best.

    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.
