Product Description

Eugene Peterson realizes that within our seminaries, congregations and, most importantly, our lives, spirituality and theology have been estranged. Thus, in Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places Peterson works to ground our spirituality in Trinitarian theology and provides an illuminating discussion of how such theology shapes spiritual lives. After sweeping aside the misunderstandings that hinder our discussions of spiritual theology, Peterson clearly describes how spiritual theology can remain sensitive to ordinary life, effectively present the Christian gospel and find its rooting in the "fear of the Lord." The foundational book in a new series on spiritual theology, Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places serves as an essential resource for those of us who have committed ourselves to incarnating the Christian gospel in a contemporary context.

Publisher's Description

Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places reunites spirituality and theology in a cultural context where these two vital facets of Christian faith have been rent asunder. Lamenting the vacuous, often pagan nature of contemporary American spirituality, Eugene Peterson here firmly grounds spirituality once more in Trinitarian theology and offers a clear, practical statement of what it means to actually live out the Christian life.

Writing in the conversational style that he is well known for, Peterson boldly sweeps out the misunderstandings that clutter conversations on spiritual theology and refurnishes the subject only with what is essential. As Peterson shows, spiritual theology, in order to be at once biblical and meaningful, must remain sensitive to ordinary life, present the Christian gospel, follow the narrative of Scripture, and be rooted in the "fear of the Lord" -- in short, spiritual theology must be about God and not about us.

The foundational book in a five-volume series on spiritual theology emerging from Peterson's pen, Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places provides the conceptual and directional help we all need to live the Christian gospel well and maturely in the conditions that prevail in the church and world today.

Author Bio

Eugene H. Peterson was a longtime pastor and is professor emeritus of spiritual theology at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia. His many other acclaimed books include Tell It Slant, The Jesus Way, Eat This Book, and the contemporary translation of the Bible titled The Message.,

    This is an amazing work which will shake the reader to the very foundations of their ceribrial and experiencial intimacy with the Lord, with His Church, and with His creation. This is not light "bubble-gum" reading, but rather will cause the reader to intermitantly stop, contemplate, pray, and reassess our notions of Christian living in this modern day world with our relevant and loving God.

    Well written. Incredibly insightful. Spiritual theology is a much overlooked theology, but it is wonderfully practical while still recognizing the wonder of the Word and of God's creation.

    The greatest thing in the world is to get grounded continually in The Word of The Creator of this world and Christ Plays in Ten thousand Places reaffirms in conversation where we are going and the Why and How as well. This book came to me at the perfect time, thank you Pastor Perterson for the dialouge and Rick McKinely and Rob Bell for introducing me to the works of Eugene Peterson.

    This is the second book I've read by Peterson on spiritual theology. His insights on how Christ works with ordinary people in their day-to-day circumstances has given me a totally new perspective on reading the bible. I wish I had discovered his books sooner.
