Publisher's Summary

"If you have raced with men on foot, and they have wearied you, how will you compete with horses?" Jeremiah 12:5

We all long to live life at its best-to fuse freedom and spontaneity with purpose and meaning. Why then do we often find our lives so humdrum, so unadventuresome, so routine? Or else so frantic, so full of activity, but still devoid of fulfillment? How do we learn to risk, to trust, to pursue wholeness and excellence-to run with the horses in the jungle of life?

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.

    Story
    "WOW!! Did I Ever Learn Jeremiah's Faithfulness To God"

    Many a Christian man nor woman has the spiritual intestinal fortitude for being as hated and despised as Jeremiah because he lived a life of faith and trusted in the will of his God for his life.

    At the end of this book, Jeremiah could have retired living a life of faith in practice by accepting the prestigious position that the Babylonian leaders offered him, but he passed it up to continue living the life of faith in Jesus Christ.

    There were no areas in the reading of this book,
    "Run with the Horses" that I found unpractical in biblical application to the believers life.

    I rated this book with 5 stars in all three areas, Overall, Performance and Story because it flowed well with the Scriptures and the continued mention of faith in practice rather than faith in word only.

    I recommend this book, "Run with the Horses" to all those Christians, who have surrendered their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ for Him to have His way in their lives, no matter the inconvenience or hardship.

    "Fantastic!"

    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.

    "Not the current edition"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is not the current edition published in 2008. The quotes are not from the Message Bible.
