Press Release

Beloved Pastor Eugene H. Peterson Guides Readers Through the
Pages of the Old Testament in a 90-Day Devotional 

 
Some writers can stop you in your tracks and make you want to slow down and spend some serious time pondering what you just read.
 
Eugene H. Peterson, the translator behind the popular The Message Bible, helps readers pause from their busy lives and reflect on some of the beautiful life-affirming truths from Scripture in Every Step an Arrival: A 90-Day Devotional for Exploring God’s Word (WaterBrook, 10/2/18).  
 
In his refreshing, down-to-earth voice, Peterson draws insights and stories from numerous Old Testament books, while stirring the Christian imagination and encouraging travel-weary readers to keep moving forward. Each short devotional reading focuses on a unique facet of God’s nature or of a believer’s identity.
 
Some foundational themes from Scripture that Peterson explores in Every Step an Arrival include:


   • Life is a dance between the holy and human.
   • We have needs. God meets our needs.
   • We search for life. He is our life.
   • We were created for intimacy with God, relationship with others and we have a responsibility to engage with the world around us.     

Every Step an Arrival
will be appreciated by Peterson’s thousands of readers along with those who have never had the pleasure of exploring the wonder and mystery of God through his writings.

This beautiful devotional arrives October 2, just in time to be used a gift for Pastor’s Appreciation Month, which will be celebrated on Sunday, October 14.
