Product Description

The fifth and final book in Peterson's best-selling Conversations in Spiritual Theology, discusses Paul's letter to the Ephesian church, urging readers make Christian character to the centerpiece of their lives. New birth in Christ is essential, notes Peterson, yet the American church does not treat Christian growth and the formation of character with equivalent urgency. Practice Resurrection strikes at the heart of healthy Christian formation by using the voice of Scripture to guide us into the fullness of Christian maturity.

Publisher's Description

There is no question that bringing men and women to new birth in Christ is essential. But, argues Eugene Peterson, isn’t it obvious that growth in Christ is equally essential? Yet the American church does not treat Christian growth and character formation with equivalent urgency. We are generally uneasy with the quiet, obscure conditions in which growth takes place. Building maturity in Christ is too often relegated to footnote status in the text of our lives.

In Practice Resurrection Peterson brings the voice of Scripture -- especially Paul’s letter to the Ephesians -- and the voice of the contemporary Christian congregation together in understanding what is involved in the practice of becoming mature -- growing up to the “stature of Christ.”

Author Bio

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.

Publisher's Weekly

Christian maturity and character formation isn’t about finding a strategy, or setting goals, or measuring congregational growth by market analysis, argues the writer in a chapter-by-chapter analysis of the New Testament book of Ephesians. Professor emeritus at Vancouver’s Regent College and author of more than 34 books, including the popular Message paraphrase of the Bible, Peterson practices what he calls “theological aesthetics,” giving new vitality to such common words in the Christian vocabulary as “saint,” “gift,” and “church.” Christians are called to live out the resurrected life that was incarnate first in Jesus and then in us, the author asserts. It’s no insult to the veteran writer to say that his tone is sometimes imperative and occasionally even a little cranky. After all, the message isn’t new—but the commentary is, as usual, thought provoking and helpful for readers who want a different, sometimes contrarian, perspective on Christian discipleship.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
“Thought-provoking and helpful for readers who want a different, sometimes contrarian, perspective on Christian discipleship.”

Christian Century
“A beautiful harmony of voices in the book that speaks gospel to contemporary kindergarten teachers, bankers, lawyers and homemakers.”

World
“Peterson’s writing style forces the reader to slow down and pay attention to words and metaphors, which is only fitting since part of his message is that we should slow down and pay attention.”

Sharing the Practice
“As vintage Peterson, this study bears all the marks of wisdom gleaned through a faithful walk with people and a deep immersion into Scripture. . . . This book was, I discovered, not a text for speed reading but rather for deliberate pondering.”

Themelios
"It is filled with many gems. . . . Practice Resurrection has plenty of depths to be mined for the pastor and layperson alike. . . . Within its pages there is much that is well worth reading and digesting.”

Crux
“A gem, a biblically rooted, exegetically precise, wisely expressed gem. It’s one of the best books I’ve read in recent months, maybe years. For Baptists and Presbyterians and Pentecostals and Anglicans -- this one’s for us.”

Practical Theology
“The book is a joy to read, not only for its rich insights on growing up in Christ, but for the beauty of its prose. . . . This book is a magnificent finish to Peterson’s tour de force in spiritual theology.”

Congregational Libraries Today
“This is essential reading for students of the New Testament and for church leaders ready for a refresher course in Christian life.”

Trinity Journal
“Those who have already been mentored through Peterson’s prolific writing will doubtless welcome this newest addition to their collections. Those who have not yet encountered his books will find a worthy introduction in this volume on growing up in Christ.”

Ministry
“Peterson is a poet, a master of words, and speaks in constant metaphor. . . . When I take Peterson’s work in bite-sized pieces, a rich reward results every time.”
