Telling God’s Story

Posted by on February 24, 2007 at 1:02 am.

Check out Jamie Smith’s very kind words about my pastor’s upcoming book called Telling God’s Story, which is coming out in May. Also, check out the other blurbs by Ray Anderson, Stanley Hauerwas, Marva Dawn, Brent Laytham, and Ron Benefiel.

This book on preaching is slated for May 2007.

I had the opportunity to see Eugene Peterson today during PLNU’s annual Writers Symposium by the sea. Peterson is most well-known for his translations of the Bible called ‘The Message,’ although he’s more properly known in pastor circles as somebody who publishes much more on the topic of pastoring. I don’t have the time to recount all the wonderful and funny things that Peterson talked about today, but he focused a lot on narrative and story for pastoring. Great connections between what these two gifted people are doing in witness to Christ through story-telling. When it is posted, I’ll try and remember to post a link to the video to today’s and yesterday’s event (Anne Lamott was here yesterday) on the UCSD TV website.
