Product Description

Review

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)

'The most significant book by Eugene Peterson' (James Catford)

Book Description

Book three of Eugene Peterson's landmark Spiritual Theology series; foundational reading for the twenty-first century church.

Format: Paperback
Any book by a Christian author that contains the following paragraph must be taken with the utmost seriousness;

"Our faith, all faith, everyone's faith, needs testing. And we cannot be trusted to test ourselves. We are too full of self-interest and self-deceit. We are too devious in devising ways of cooking the books to document the evidence that serves our illusions. When we look at the track record of priests and temples, pastors and churches, missionaries and missions, it is obvious that religion in all its forms, including most emphatically Christianity, is a perpetual breeding ground for violence, abuse, superstition, war, discrimination, tyranny, and pride. Religion and spirituality is a bottomless pit breeding illusion, deceit and oppression..."

Not surprisingly, this is a thought provoking book, well written and challenging on every turn of the page. It is essentially about what Jesus meant when he told us that he is "The Way" and that we should follow him.

The book opens by asking us to consider the modern "ways and means" by which we usually get things done. How we often embrace, even in our spiritual journey, the political, business and social practices that Jesus consistently rejected. For Jesus, the means of getting things done was through the messy business of engaging on a personal level with everyone he encountered.

Peterson then takes us through several Old Testament characters (Abraham, Moses, David, Elijah and Isaiah) and demonstrates how they were each diligently laying the foundations of The Way which eventually would be personified in Jesus. We examine episodes from these great lives and learn how they managed to discern the manner in which God sought to engage with his people.

An excellent book again from the pen of Eugene Peterson. He is masterful in seeing the bigger picture of Scriptures. It was a reminder too that God's men (and women) are only flesh and blood but with all the potential of walking through this world as His chosen. One little criticism! There was no mention of Daniel in the author's decription of the period of Israel's exile in Babylon and I'm not convinced of the 2 or 3 Isaiah theory. However this book is worth reading and re-reading.

As a devout reader of C. S. Lewis, I would recommend The Jesus Way as an inspiring and though provoking book. I keep going back to it and have quoted from it extensively as a public speaker.

Eugene is always such good value. I particularly enjoyed his insights into Jesus defining moments in the wilderness and how this shaped his kingdom ministry.
