Item description for Traveling Light: Modern Meditations on St. Paul's Letter of Freedom by Eugene H. Peterson...

Overview
Peterson, who is translator of "The Message Bible," explores the free life in Christ that believers must both receive as a gift and practice as a skill. In an engaging, often passionate dialogue in which Paul's letter to the Galatians faces off against the crises of modern life, he offers both encouragement and challenge to men and women trapped in anxieties and determinism.

Publishers Description
For a culture so awash in fantasies of freedom, we are conspicuously lacking in the experience of freedom. In "Traveling Light," Eugene H. Peterson, who is translator of "The Message Bible," explores the free life in Christ that we must both receive as a gift and practice as a skill. In an engaging, often passionate dialogue in which Paul's letter to the Galatians faces off against the crises of modern life, he offers both encouragement and challenge to men and women trapped in the anxieties and determinism of our age. Eugene H. Peterson was pastor of Christ Our King United Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland, for nearly three decades, then served as professor of spirituality theology at Regent College, Vancouver, BC. Dr. Peterson is translator of "The Message" and author of numerous other works, among them "A Long Obedience in the Same Direction" and "Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places." "Like a skilled eye doctor, Eugene Peterson turns the lens that clears our vision and enables us to discriminate between reality and fantasy, to see what satisfies and what leads to bondage." -- Rebecca Pippert

Reviews - What do customers think about Traveling Light: Modern Meditations on St. Paul's Letter of Freedom?

Traveling Light is an excellent book!  Nov 8, 2007
I'm going through the book with my pastor. Eugene Peterson has some amazing insight, and it has short chapters so you don't have to stress over reading one chapter at a time. It is a great read and It's hard to put down.
 
Traveling Light by Eugene Peterson  Feb 22, 2006
Excellent book! My Bible class has been using it as a guide.
 
Legalism's voice is silenced in your life w/this reading.  Aug 2, 1999
Mr. Peterson is so great at modernizing the words of Paul. As a result of reading this book, it would be difficult to misunderstand the truth intended in Paul's letter to the Galatians throughout the centuries. These pages exemplify freedom upon freedom. Truly, I believe Mr. Peterson is one of the best Christian authors of our time.
 
Refreshing and relevant commentary of freedom in Galatians.  Jul 20, 1998
Peterson develops his devotional commentary around the relevant central theme in Galatians of FREEDOM. Contains simple and powerful insights to aid any who feel pressured to conform to external religious standards in order to find acceptance with God or the religious community. Peterson delivers with conviction and passion. Full of excellent illustrations and applications. An aid both to understanding each passage and flow of this Bible book (notable are his well thought out chapter divisions and contemporary textual paraphrase), but also grasping and applying its central theme. Very readable.

My copy is well worn for my frequent return trips. Buy it! You won't be disappointed.
