From the Project Twelve team:

“In June I saw a clinical psychologist and college professor named Jordan Peterson speak at the Pabst Theatre in Milwaukee. It was sold out with a line around the block, the majority were millennial men and younger. He struck a nerve about a year ago on YouTube, and with his book called “12 Rules for Life, An Antidote to Chaos”. He seems to be for millennials what Robert Bly and Joseph Campbell was for us 40 years ago.

Young men seem to be responding to his message. It struck me that it’s important for old men to leave a trail for young men who are coming up. The messages were simple, like “take inventory and work with what you have, be polite, do your business. Take control of your own story and direct it.” He also respects Christians a whole lot, and men too, which put him on my reading list.”


Use Cases: Use this book as a group study.


Speed Bumps: The author of this book may not approach his view with a Christ-Centered perspective and some readers may not agree with his evolutionary psychological approach.
