Eugene Peterson on stories, translation… and Bono

by quaesitor
This is an absolute delight – set aside 30 minutes to watch this very genial and often hysterical fireside chat with a man who has much to say. Amazing how much ground they cover in this short time (from Dickens & Joyce to Wendell Berry, translating The Message & Bono’s appreciation of it, the limitations of our understanding and the need to ordain fiction writers!).
Taken from a writer’s symposium in Feb 2007 in California. (HT – U2sermons)

    This was outstanding! I especially like his words toward the end about ordaining writers!
