Show Notes:39. The Writing and Legacy of Eugene Peterson — with Drew Dyck

It’s hard to overstate the significance Eugene Peterson has had on me as a writer and pastor. Learning of his death a few weeks ago, I knew I wanted to take some time to reflect on his life and ministry.

On this episode, I’m joined by Drew Dyck, Acquisitions Editor at Moody and Editor for Christianity Today Pastors. Drew has been a reader of Peterson and had the privilege of interviewing Eugene on several occasions.

We reflect on our favorite Peterson books, what writers can learn from Peterson’s work, and what Peterson’s legacy will look like in the years to come. This is an important conversation for me and one that I hope reflects the deep respect and appreciation I have for Eugene Peterson.

  • Cold nights mean blankets.
  • Link in bio. It's the season of giving and we all know how hard it can be to buy gifts for men. This season, give the men in your life a gift to help them grow into better men. The 5 Masculine Instincts is great for husbands, sons, and grandsons and best of all, it fits perfectly into those fireplace stockings.

Even better, today, Moody is offering the book at 50% off! You can buy the book anywhere you shop for books.
  • Snow, ice, and minus zero wind chill but we got the job done and had some great dog work. South Dakota pheasant hunting is hard to beat.
  • This week, I had the chance to spend a few days at the C4 ranch just out side of Coronado. The ranch is owned by a veterans organization that provides retreats and workshops for Navy Seal operators and their families. The ranch is ran by the Keatings, a gold star family, whose Navy Seal son Charles Humphrey Keating IV was killed in Iraq. This Veterans Day I’m grateful again for those who have sacrificed, including so many families. Thank you.
  • I’m so grateful to be an American and election days are a great reminder of the gift and responsibility we steward. And thanks to all the churches who open to serve as voting places. God give us all wisdom and guidance. May we honor you today. #votered
  • This weekend, I’ve had the chance to worship and study The 5 Masculine Instincts with the men of @westgatechurch in the hills above San Jose. I’m so great full for the opportunity and for their generosity and spirit. Culture has a lot of negative things to say about men, but weekends like this remind me that God is building his church and redeeming men in ways the world overlooks.
  • Another evening filming for @bibleengagementproject. This was the 19th volume I’ve presented, 76 video lessons. I’m once again grateful for the opportunity.
  • Working from home.
  • This weekend, I got to do a book signing at Barnes & Noble. It was a great experience and fun to see these two kiddos stop by.

This weekend, I’ve had the chance to worship and study The 5 Masculine Instincts with the men of @westgatechurch in the hills above San Jose. I’m so great full for the opportunity and for their generosity and spirit. Culture has a lot of negative things to say about men, but weekends like this remind me that God is building his church and redeeming men in ways the world overlooks.
