As Kingfishers Catch Fire

As Kingfishers Catch Fire

‘Sixty years ago I found myself distracted.’ So begins the introduction to As Kingfishers Catch Fire. What follows is the record of the collaboration of pastor and congregation in acts of worship and a life together. What Eugene Peterson, for thirty years pastor of a Maryland church, discovered is that the pastor’s life is much more than just the preaching. It is also made up of attending to the details in all the circumstances and relationships specific to a people and a place – prayers at a hospital bed, conversations with the elderly, small talk on a street corner.

This collection of spiritual writings presents Peterson’s distinctive approach designed to communicate to his congregation, and the reader, ‘the full counsel of God.’ Seven sections containing seven teachings, each expertly crafted to stir the biblical imagination. In these teachings, Peterson walks the reader through Scripture to bring fresh insight to familiar names such as Moses, David, Isaiah, Solomon, Peter, Paul, and John of Patmos.
