A Conversation with Eugene Peterson 2007

If you haven't come across this video, do take time to watch it. Some highlights of the video that might stir you curiosity...

-'Who is Bono?'
-Eugene Peterson explains how Isaiah made him turn down Bono's invitation to hang out.
-Some explanation of his translation of the bible: The Message
-Peterson said he wanted to use the word 'lucky' in the beatitudes and explains why
-One of the pastor's job is to "keep the perceptions clean of God"
-Peterson would rather have his books over in the cook book's section.
-writers and poets should be ordained by the church just as pastors and scholars ...

Care to share any thoughts?

I'm a student of Theology (currently and will always be one). I'm a student of culture and a student of music as well. I guess you could say life is a never ending journey of learning. Because of that we never stop being students. Just a little something about this blog: Deconstructing The Monkey is all about being a safe space for emerging conversations
