Throughout this interesting read, Peterson incorporates historical and linguistic insights without getting too theologically detailed. Peterson clearly demonstrates that a lifelong obedience is the only true path of discipleship to Jesus. This is a well-written book. The reader will find many gems throughout. In our instant culture that wants everything now, this book is more needed now than ever.
Thankful for Eugene's voice, I've gone deeper in my faith and learned a lot from his words and also how he encourages scripture reading.
One of my most favorite quotes from the book:
"The joy comes because God knows how to wipe away tears, and, in his resurrection work, create the smile of a new life."
