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 was a longtime pastor and is professor emeritus of spiritual theology at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia. His many other acclaimed books include Tell It Slant, The Jesus Way, Eat This Book, and the contemporary translation of the Bible titled The Message.,

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.
