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 both 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.
Eugene H. Peterson, author of the best-selling contemporary translation of the Bible titled The Message, is professor emeritus of spiritual theology at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia.

"There is no pastor in the world that I trust more than Eugene Peterson, and this book offers us Eugene at his best---poet, storyteller, wonderer, biblical scholar, sage, practiced disciple, and lover of God. He woos us into exquisitely perceptive Bible readings, diagnoses the dangers of our common shortcuts, and immerses us in the community of those who live the truth of the Trinity in Jesus way. This is a life-transforming and liberating book. I pray that many people will give it thoughtful, reverent attention." -Marva J. Dawn
"What would a spiritual theology look like that came from the hands of a person who, after a long and faithful pastorate crowned by a remarkably fruitful professorate, had been immersed in translating the whole of Holy Scripture? It would look like Eugene Petersons Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places. Completely free of gimmicks and cheap techniques, this book settles in convincingly at the center---in the God-honoring Sabbath of creation, the Christ-centered supper of salvation, and the Spirit-honoring meals of community building and evangelism. I believe this is the deepest meditation on spiritual theology in our time." -Frederick Dale Bruner
"In 1987 Eugene Peterson saved my pastoral soul. He did it with the ancient wisdom of Working the Angles. He is at it again with Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places. Everything I know and love about Peterson, personally and vocationally, stands skyscraper tall on the pages of this book. His life and his obedience are as tight as a lug nut on a fire hydrant. Here is a single-minded book for the pastor trying to shepherd the flock through the hill country of postmodern moral multiple choice. Here is a book for the scholar and teacher trying to find a sane way to rejoin the severed body parts of theology and practice. Here is a book for thinking Christian believers who know, if only intuitively, that all the religious self-help books in the world will never help us to 'play Christ' in that world 'in ten thousand places'!" -Timothy L. Brown
"How refreshing! A spiritual theology that begins and ends with God---Gods initiative, Gods action in daily life, Gods grace. Peterson is at his finest here, offering profound biblical and theological insight with the eloquence of a poet. Each page left me thirsty for more---even as I found remarkable refreshment in these deep waters of wisdom and faith." -Anne Svennungsen
CrookedlegsCashmere, WAAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Immediately necessary for the long haul!March 21, 2011CrookedlegsCashmere, WAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.
Lori Mcgregor5 Stars Out Of 5September 21, 2010Lori McgregorWell 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.
Ed Thompson5 Stars Out Of 5June 17, 2010Ed ThompsonExcellent book. I have given two copies to friends to read with good results. This book is so interesting and full of fresh insights I need to read it again myself.
Maurine Doyle5 Stars Out Of 5October 3, 2008Maurine DoyleThe 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.
Loren Pederson5 Stars Out Of 5August 30, 2007Loren PedersonThis 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.
