His most inspiring book yet, THE JESUS WAY explores the spirituality of following Christ.
Book three of Eugene Peterson's landmark SPIRITUAL THEOLOGY series. Foundational reading for the Twenty-First Century Church.
Continuing Peterson's major evaluation of contemporary Christian spirituality, THE JESUS WAY asks what it means to authentically follow Christ in the modern world.
As with other books in the series, THE JESUS WAY is written for both academic and serious lay audiences. Challenging but rewarding, it combines first-rate scholarship with illustrations drawn from raw human experience.
From his profound scholarship and spiritual wisdom, Eugene Peterson helps us see the stark simplicity and necessity of adopting the way in which Jesus is - not just selecting a few words or deeds from him and calling ourselves "Christians", but finding an inner oneness with him in kingdom living that pushes away all the bright ideas and traditional 'wisdoms' about how we can get things done for Jesus without being like him. - Dallas Willard
