A Long Obedience Quote

I am still working on the Deuteronomy post, perhaps in a few days. In the meantime though I hope to share some invaluble quotes from books I have been going through. The first is from Eugene Peterson's A Long Obedience in the Same Direction.
A Christian who has David in his bones, Jeremiah in his bloodstream, Paul in his fingertips and Christ in his heart will know how much and how little value to put on his own momentary feelings and the experience of the past week.
Wise words indeed. After finishing this morning I can whole-heartedly recommend it. While reading it I am sure you'll find, as I did, someone who is both scholar and pastor, poet and theologian
