The Jesus Way--part of Eugene Peterson's meaty "conversations" on spiritual theology series is a compelling call to live as Christ lived.A way of sacrifice. A way of failure. A way on the margins. A way of holiness. In The Jesus Way Eugene Peterson shows how the ways of those who came before Christ--Abraham, Moses, David, Elijah, and Isaiah--revealed and prepared the "way of the Lord" that became incarnate and complete in Jesus. Further, Peterson calls into question common "ways" followed by the contemporary American church, showing in stark relief how what we have chosen to focus on - consumerism, celebrity, charisma, and so forth--obliterates what is unique in the Jesus way.
