“Everyday I put hope on the line.”- Eugene Peterson. A glimpse into Author Eugene Peterson's life. The short documentary film, “Peterson: In Between The Man And The Message” endeavours to visually capture the essence of a life well lived. Going beyond Eugene Peterson’s literary and life accomplishments we discover what compels him to articulate his inner life and what it means to live beyond the noise and into the solitude? The film embraces Eugene and his wife Jan’s life at home, as a family, and even into a canoe across Flathead Lake. We welcome a story of refined and marinated wisdom to wash over us in silence and spoken word. We capture for generations an intimate glimpse of a humble man, whose life and work has shaped the way we live.
