Product Description

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.

    I picked up this book as a bargain deal here. Best bargain I've ever gotten. The chapters related to Elijah and Isaiah are worth full price or more. Buy this book. Read this book. You will not be disappointed.

    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?"

    I had lost track of Eugene Peterson, although two of his earlier books had been read. This one, is a treasure and now looke like an AAA road map with my highlights for future reference.
