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".

Publisher's Description

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

Though bringing people to new birth in Christ through evangelism is essential, says Eugene Peterson, isn't growth in Christ equally essential? Yet the American church by and large does not treat Christian maturity and character formation with much urgency.

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 to unpack the crucial truth of what it means to fully grow 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.,

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.
