There's a lot to like about Dr. Jordan Peterson's new book 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos. For Christians, though, it needs to be read with a hefty dose of Biblical discernment.
I was privileged to write a review for my church's magazine, The Canadian Lutheran, about Dr. Jordan Peterson's new book 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos. It's a worthwhile read, for sure, though as a Christian pastor, I would counsel Christians to read it with a hefty dose of Biblical discernment.
I elaborate in the Canadian Lutheran article, but I recognize that the piece—due to space limitations as a combination print/online article—is far too brief to really dive in deep. I'm planning to go into more detail here on TheResonant in the near future, so I welcome your engagement with the book and with me as we delve more into it after Easter.
You can watch the trailer below (Yes, books have trailers now. It's a thing.) to get an idea of the premise in Dr. Peterson's own words.
