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!

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.
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.
