Introducing Jordan Peterson

It is very unusual for a book written by a Christian to be in the best sellers list, that is the case with Jordan Peterson’s 12 rules for life. Peterson is a clinical psychologist who lectures in a Canadian University and runs a private clinic. He is also a Christian.

I have just read his book and found it very helpful, I am not surprised that it is popular. He presents profound Christian views in a stimulating and accessible way. Over the next few weeks I will summarise some of the things from the book. As an introduction you might like to watch / listen to this channel 4 interview with Jordan Peterson on the crisis in masculinity, the gender pay gap, campus protests and postmodernism, based on the book.

It is long, around 30 minutes, but worth the time. If you just want a highlight, try 22 minutes in.
