We’re excited to run this giveaway of TWO copies of this great new book:

Lights a Lovely Mile:
Collected Sermons of the Church Year

Eugene Peterson

Hardcover: WaterBrook, 2023

Book Description:

Eugene H. Peterson’s never-before-published wisdom for each season of the Christian year. The glorious, never-dull reality of the gospel is this: Christ sets us free. All of us can be doers of the word, using the stuff of the everyday to make something to the glory of God.

Long before his iconic paraphrased Bible translation, The Message, Eugene H. Peterson (1932–2018) faithfully preached for decades to the small congregation of Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland.

As the seasons passed, along with the accompanying fasts and feasts, Peterson faithfully preached on ways to cultivate a robust, authentic life of faith, intimacy, obedience, and joy. Following the calendar of the church year, from the darkness of Advent to the light of Epiphany, the wilderness of Lent to the celebration of Easter, and the fire of Pentecost to the everyday glory of ordinary time, these remarkable sermons point to the eternity beyond our experience of time.

With his trademark wit and wisdom, Peterson shows how to pursue a “long obedience in the same direction” through all the seasons, colors, and rhythms of our lives.
