"Eugene H. Peterson skillfully uses the David story to talk not
about David, but about you and me. Leap Over A Wall is the human
story in all its wonder and terror and pity."--Richard J. Foster,
author of Celebration of Discipline
"Leap Over A Wall brings King David's life so close to us, each event a devotional experience, each application an experience that walks us step by step to David's God and ours."--Walter Wangerin Jr., author of Reliving the Passion
"The author brings the Old Testament world revealingly close to our own century, and he makes vivid the notion that God's purposes are worked out in the ordinariness of specific human lives."--Publishers Weekly
"This retelling and reflection on the life of David, the most completely portrayed character in the Bible . . . depicts an epic figure with the foibles of modern men and women. . . . This everyman analysis brings new life to the stories."--Washington Post
