Product Description

Eugene Peterson leverages Paul's letter to the Ephesians to explicate the importance of spiritual maturity in the award winning Practice Resurrection.

While mission and the effort to bring to new believers to Christ is a critical component of the Christian life, Eugene Peterson believes that growth of those who believe towards maturity in Christ is equally important. After all, Christ called the church to make disciples, not merely converts. Yet, by in large, American neglect issues of discipleship and maturation hoping instead that it will "just happen" over time.

Peterson's insightful and illuminating book Practice Resurrection brings the voice of Scripture--especially Paul's letter to the Ephesians--and the voice of the contemporary Christian congregation together to unpack the crucial truth of what it means to fully grow up to the "stature of Christ." Known for his unique perspectives and exceptional, fun, and engaging writing style this provocative book will help pastors and laity fully grasp what is at stake and how Paul led believers into full maturity.

Winner of Christianity Today's 2011 award for "best book in spirituality".

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.

Endorsements

This is the perfect culmination to Eugene Peterson's fivefold Conversations in Spiritual Theology. How much the church would be transfigured if we could all more fully live as one with Christ in His Resurrection! You will delight in the way Peterson takes portions of Ephesians and displays the results of 'rocket' verbs and other word choices, of disciplines toward maturity, and of movements 'upward, inward, Godward.' This is a life-transforming book for us all!
-Marva J. Dawn
author of Reaching Out without Dumbing Down

Peterson practices what he calls 'theological aesthetics,' giving new vitality to such common words in the Christian vocabulary as 'saint,' 'gift,' and 'church.'...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.
Publishers Weekly

This is the fifth and culminating contribution to Peterson's series of books on spiritual theology...Peterson builds bridge after bridge from the biblical text to our contemporary context...In both the goals of the book and the quality of the writing, Peterson has provided an extraordinary example of pastoral scholarship.

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.”
