"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."

Marva J. Dawn-- author of "Reaching Out without Dumbing Down""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!""Publishers Weekly""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.""Christian Century""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."
