Summary
Nothing captures the biblical foundation for this journey better than Peterson's teachings over his twenty-nine years as a pastor. As Kingfishers Catch Fire offers a never-before-published collection of these teachings to anyone longing for a richer, truer spirituality. Peterson's strikingly beautiful prose and deeply grounded insights usher us into a new understanding of how to live out the good news of the Word made flesh. This is one man's compelling quest to discover not only how to be a pastor but how to be a human being
