A valuable study companion for Eugene Peterson's book, The Jesus Way. Eleven sessions for personal study or group includes a summary of the book chapter, quotations from the book, key adjectives, questions for interaction, and a prayer from Christians through the centuries.
The third book in Eugene Peterson's momentous five-volume conversation on spiritual theology,The Jesus Way considers the "way of the Lord" that became incarnate and complete in Jesus. Arguing that the way Jesus leads and the way we follow are symbiotic, Peterson challenges the ways of the contemporary American church, showing how they often obliterate what is unique in the Jesus way.
This helpful study guide is designed to enable small groups in schools or churches -- or even individuals -- to delve deeper into the timely wisdom of The Jesus Way. Peterson's discussion is broken up here into eleven "sessions," each of which contains a summary, a list of key adjectives, quotations to consider, and questions for interaction, ending with a select prayer from one of several "traveling companions on the Jesus way.".

"Profound scholarship and spiritual wisdom. . . Soak yourself in The Jesus Way."
senior writer for Christianity Today
"Peterson's love for the way of Jesus infuses these pages. Peterson inhabits the biblical texts, moving freely among their many rooms, introducing us to family members and neighbors so that we understand Jesus as a person in context. A thoughtful, humane book full of learning worn lightly."
