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 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. (Feb.)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
