    I just wish the headlines that grab everyone wouldn’t be the social clickbait.

    His life was so much more.

    Thanks for this push.

    BD,

    The book is basically about a man seeking to be holy.
    Good luck selling that…thus the clickbait…

    Thank you for the book recommendation. I read Peterson as a newish Christian. I didn’t always agree, but I always respected him. We don’t always like easy answers or people who don’t live up to our doctrinal expectations. It’s sad.

    I don’t always tell my evangelical friends what I have been reading by the way. It’s not worth arguing when they are not familiar with the author and his ideas.

    …always chose pastoral care over doctrinal proclamations.

    I like that since I think many reformed weigh truth more than grace. However, I don’t think there should be separation between orthodoxy and orthoproxy. I think of Jesus being full of grace and truth. He didn’t separate them. He was full of both. I probably should read this biography if I were a pastor but I’m not. Curious what other pastor’s on the blog think of Peterson though?

    Linn,

    Yeah, me either. Not worth the hassle. A lot of my reactionary Xn friends are gonna need knee surgery. 🙂

    I’ve been a pastor for over thirty years…and if Anglicans canonized people I’d be pushing for Peterson sainthood…

    One need not be a pastor to learn from a sage in the church…

    Michael,

    I had the honor of interviewing Peterson in the late 80s for a magazine piece. He couldn’t have been more gracious. I had to do a lot of editing because of the nature of the article. Sometimes authors don’t like that and can be persnickety. Not the case at all with him.

    bob1,

    I envy you!
    He was a great help to me in life in continues to speak to me even though he’s gone on before me.
