Throughout his many years in pastoral ministry, Eugene Peterson has found that almost everything he does as a pastor - preaching, teaching, praying, counseling, writing - involves words. To keep himself attuned to the power of words and to help him use language accurately and well, Peterson both reads and writes poetry. Holy Luck presents three inspirational collections of Peterson's poems, most of which have never before been published, in one transcendent volume: Holy Luck (poems based on the Beatitudes), The Rustling Grass (poems about uncovering the Kingdom of God in the ordinary) and Smooth Stones (occasional poems about ""discovering significance in every detail encountered while following Jesus"")

Review:

"Sharing the Practice" The poems are a slow-read treasure, a meditative moment, and a place to return. . . . This is a book to pick up and ponder again and again. "Congregational Libraries Today" The verses in Holy Luck are rich in vocabulary, in word pictures, and in the wisdom Eugene H. Peterson has gleaned from years of ministry and life experience. "St. Anthony Messenger" This small yet beautiful collection lifts language to the dimension of holiness inspired by Scripture and by the extraordinary hidden in the everyday."

About the Author:

Eugene H Peterson was a longtime pastor and is Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia. His many other acclaimed books include Tell It Slant, The Jesus Way, Eat This Book, and the contemporary translation of the Bible titled The Message.

Speaking to various aspects of "Kingdom of God" living, these poems are arranged in three sets: Holy Luck -- poems arising out of the BeatitudesThe Rustling Grass -- poems opening up invisible Kingdom realities through particular created thingsSmooth Stones -- occasional poems about discovering significance in every detail encountered while following Jesus Echoing the language of Peterson's popular Bible translation, The Message, the poems in Holy Luck are well suited for devotional purposes.
