I love older pastors. They are a unique gift to the church and especially to younger pastors. This is why I was curious to read "The Pastor" by Eugene Peterson. This book of his memoirs is a glimpse into the life and ministry of this man who, although he pastored over 30 years and wrote many books, is best known as the author of the biblical paraphrase, The Message.
"The Pastor" is an easy to read, autobiographical account of one man’s journey in realizing his calling to be a pastor and the constant progression of life’s events that helped bring him to that place. Hence, the catch phrase of the book is “Every step an arrival."
