The Imperfect Disciple – Available for Pre-order

During my time at Midwestern,
I’ve had the privilege of working alongside Jared C. Wilson at the
For the Church website.

But long before my arrival on campus, Jared’s voice was influential in renewing my gospel focus as a 20-something in ministry and I continue to be grateful for the way God uses him as each new title is published.

On May 2nd, Jared’s latest book, The Imperfect Disciple, will be released to the wild. If anything is certain, we can trust it will fit its billing as a book written about discipleship for “people who screw up, people who are weary, people who are wondering if it’s safe to say what they’re really thinking.”

If you’re headed to Indianapolis next week for the TGC Conference, you can pick it up early. Otherwise, you can pre-order from Amazon or ChristianBook.com today.

Peterson’s Prose

I love reading most anything Eugene Peterson has written. I’m currently revisiting his The Pastor: A Memoir, and this little bit jumped out at me:

That line! The one about the lilacs and apple trees. Wouldn’t it have been easier to just write, “It was late spring”? This is what makes Peterson’s writing breathe for me and I get so lost in it.

Just an observation. I’ll get back to reading.
