Leap Over a Wall

Earthy Spirituality for Everyday Christians
Product Description

In the Bible, the revelation of God is primarily conveyed through narrative. And the story of King David in particular speaks to the challenges that everyone faces in daily life. In Leap Over a Wall, Eugene H. Peterson uses stories from David's life as inspirational spiritual lessons.

Chosen by God, David rose from humble origins to become a warrior, poet and king. But he was also a person with flaws who made many mistakes throughout his life. By exploring this beloved figure's successes, failures and relationship with God, Peterson reveals the enduring truths behind the Bible stories and the extraordinary nature of everyday spirituality.

Eugene H. Peterson, author of the best-selling contemporary translation of the Bible titled The Message, is professor emeritus of spiritual theology at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia, and the author of over thirty books, including The Pastor, The Jesus Way, Practice Resurrection, and A Long Obedience in the Same Direction. He and his wife Jan live in Montana.

"This Everyman analysis brings new life to the stories of David and Goliath, David and Bathsheba, David and Absalom, David and the Temple." -- Washington Post

--Walter Wangerin Jr., author of Reliving the Passion
