Meet the Author

Andrew Peterson's love for storytelling is a vital part of his life. If he's not huddled down flipping pages for his young sons Aedan and Jesse and their little sister, Skye, then he's out on the edge of a stage, spinning tales as one of today's most prolific songwriters. Peterson invites us on yet another journey to someplace unexpected. Peterson's keen eye for lyrical detail and endearing sincerity with his listeners often draw comparisons to Rich Mullins. He contends. "My hope is that my music captures a hint of the beauty of God's story."
