Throughout his many years in ministry, and as one of today's leading spiritual writers, Eugene Peterson has found that almost everything he does as a pastor - preaching, teaching, praying, counselling, 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. These striking and beautiful poems explore the the paradox of the beatitudes and the surprising ordinariness of the Kingdom of God: Holy Luck (poems based on the Beatitudes) The Rustling Grass (poems about uncovering the Kingdom of God in the ordinary) Smooth Stones (occasional poems about 'discovering significance in every detail encountered while following Jesus')
