This is a trilogy combining three popular books, "The Gift", "The Journey", and "The Quest" in one volume. "Life at Its Best" combines the full contents of Eugene Peterson's three previous books, all of which display his accessible approach to challenging subject matter and his inspirational outlook on the Christian life. "The Gift": in this deceptively simple, extraordinarily powerful book, Peterson cuts through the social and religious conventions that have attached themselves to our understanding of Christian ministry and speaks words of wisdom and encouragement to those caught up in the busyness of church life. "The Journey": the pilgrim life leads us to God, but it goes against the stream of the world's hurried ways; we need to look elsewhere for encouragement and sustenance on the journey. Peterson explores the 15 psalms, known as the Song of Ascent, used by Hebrew pilgrims as they journeyed to Jerusalem for the great worship festivals. "The Quest": Peterson uses the book of Jeremiah to inspire a wide-ranging analysis of the human spiritual condition.For those who choose to live courageously rather than cautiously, "The Quest" paints a vivid picture of a practical and authentic spirituality for everyday living.
