9780310242475: The Wisdom of Each Other: A Conversation Between Spiritual Friends

An illuminating example of friendship as a vital way God answers our need for guidance, encouragement, affirmation, and correction. Most of the time, what we need to help us through the struggles in our lives is not the advice of an expert but the wisdom of a friend. Through this series of eloquent letters written to a life-long friend, author Eugene Peterson demonstrates friendship as a means to Christian maturity. The topics covered in this warm and highly personal correspondence are broad and varied, but one thing comes through with constancy and clarity: there is great value in a wise, experienced friend to help us see more clearly and to strengthen our growth in faith and godliness.

From the Publisher:

Honest and prayerful conversation is often hard to come by. In our reliance upon the Bible as our source of counsel, many of us overlook what the Scriptures themselves say about the importance of godly friends as a source of wisdom and practical direction for living. Eugene Peterson believes that counsel between companions engaged in a common task--that of following Christ--needs to be revived among believers. In The Wisdom of Each Other, Peterson portrays a relationship between a long-time believer and a seeker wanting to renew his commitment to Christ as they discuss the importance of living out their faith. Drawing from his own experience, Peterson helps us see how God can speak through wise, faith-filled companions, offering guidance, encouragement, and counsel for the challenges and concerns of everyday living.

From the Author:

Eugene H. Peterson is professor of spiritual theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia. In addition to The Message, he has written numerous books, including A Long Obedience In The Same Direction, Leap Over a Wall and Working The Angles. A contributing editor to Leadership Journal, he and his wife, Jan, have three grown children
