It's a joy to hear again from Eugene Peterson, who is not only an important theological voice, but the best writer in the contemporary church. In this book he defines the way of Jesus biblically, first in Jesus' own terms, then in Old Testament terms. We see that the way of the incarnate Word is rooted in the way of the pre-incarnate Word, shown by the great figures of the Old Testament. Then in Part II Peterson lays out the various ways and means of so-called leadership, secular and religious, that were available to Jesus, on display in the world. We learn the distinctions between those and the Jesus way. The contrasting ways are precisely the same as now. So as we today face the temptation to live out our faith in faithless ways we learn to ask not "What WOULD Jesus do?" but "What DID Jesus do?"
