If you have raced with men on foot, and they have wearied you, how will you compete with horses? Jeremiah 12:5

We all long to live life at its best-to fuse freedom and spontaneity with purpose and meaning. Why then do we often find our lives so humdrum, so unadventuresome, so routine? Or else so frantic, so full of activity, but still devoid of fulfillment? How do we learn to risk, to trust, to pursue wholeness and excellence-to run with the horses in the jungle of life?

In a series of profound reflections on the life of Jeremiah the prophet, Eugene Peterson explores the heart of what it means to be fully and genuinely human. His writing is filled with humor and self-reflection, insight and wisdom, helping to set a course for others in the quest for life at its best. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " A deep, thought provoking, and personally challenging read. Not just a fun, lighthearted read, but very introspective. Worth the time and processing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Churchlady | 2/12/2014

    " Peterson is my new favorite. This study on the prophet Jeremiah is a course book for all who attempt to teach God's word. The minute I finished, I knew I needed to read it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philippa | 2/6/2014

    " Initially I thought this would be a depressing book, but it really spoke to me about Jeremiah's courage and obedience "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 1/21/2014

    " As usual with Peterson's books, I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful statements of truth in this book. Like Lewis, Peterson is great with metaphors and helps me visualize the backdrops of Scriptural passages. This book draws from the life of the prophet Jeremiah, and after reading it I feel like I have a better grip on Jeremiah's world. And there are lots of connection points to our world -- Peterson is so good at highlighting those! This book was absolutely worth reading and I shall, undoubtedly, return to it in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Spook Harrison | 1/9/2014

    " Amazing. I'm going to have to read more of Peterson's work, because this was such an invigorating view of a prophet I haven't spent much time learning about previously. Not only did this book give a lot of information and detail, but Peterson has a gift for making it relevant to one's own life, which is an integral part of religion! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/7/2014

    " I really need to read this again without so much distraction. It was really interesting but I feel there was more in it that I missed out on by reading in fits and starts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Santosh Ninan | 1/7/2014

    " Has many themes that are classic Peterson. Enjoyable, thorough, creative and refreshing. "

    " good, but not Peterson's best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Fisher | 12/19/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Luke Brown | 8/8/2013

    " I would give this a 7 if possible. Truly enjoyable insights from Jeremiah. One of the most enjoyable Peterson books I've read and may use it for a sermon series. Takes various happenings in Jeremiah and explains why they are important for us. Very fine book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 nate | 5/24/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Williams | 2/21/2013

    " i have read this book twice. even though he wrote this like 20 years ago, he still has a lot of relevant stuff to say to people today. book is based on the book of jeremiah. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charlie | 11/3/2012

    " This was more-or-less a series of sermons on Jeremiah. The sermons were kind of lightweight and, thus, easy to read through. Not real memorable, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 10/13/2012

    " Interesting take on the life of Jeremiah. I didn't find it quite as compelling as the other books by Petersen that I have read/am reading, but well worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 9/1/2012

    " One of the best books ever for me - fiction or non-fiction. Eugene Peterson writes about the prophet Jeremiah and what made him successful and how we can use those same lessons to make our lives successful. Really makes the book of Jeremiah understandable and enlightening. I'll read this one again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 8/15/2011

    " Several times I howled with laughter as I read this book. The author disappears to allow the reader to experience Porter's childhood with him. "
