5.0 out of 5 stars Rooted and Relevant, 5 Mar 2013
This review is from: Practise Resurrection: A Conversation on Growing Up in Christ (Spiritual Theology 5) (Paperback)
Having recently read 'The word Made flesh' and 'Eat This Book', and finding both extremely helpful, I came to 'Practising Resurrection' as a Peterson fan. He is one of a rare breed of Christian writers, in my view, who is able to combine the timelessness of a confident orthodoxy with relevance to a changing culture. His feet, as far as I can tell, are firmly planted on planet Earth.. This volume does not disappoint. It considers Paul's letter to the Ephesian church and using Peterson's habitual combination of biblical insight, cultural analysis and personal anecdote, unpacks it for our day. There is a scholarly undertone to the writing that lends the book credibility, but it remains accessible and readable. Highly recommended.

It also bears mentioning that the design work that Hodder Faith have done on the UK version is excellent. We are consistently told not to judge a book by its cover, but the evidence overwhelmingly suggests that we do. The shift from print to e-book has changed nothing: a thumbnail on Amazon can be as decisive as a printed cover on a shelf. In this case Hodders have done a remarkable job of capturing both the rootedness and the relevance of Peterson's writing. However they came to the process, they need to do more of it and perhaps encourage others down the same road...
