The Jesus Way
-- part of Eugene Peterson's meaty -conversations- on spiritual theology
A way of sacrifice. A way of failure. A way on the margins. A way of holiness. In The Jesus Way
Eugene Peterson shows how the ways of those who came before Christ -- Abraham, Moses, David, Elijah, and Isaiah -- revealed and prepared the -way of the Lord- that became incarnate and complete in Jesus. Further, Peterson calls into question common -ways- followed by the contemporary American church, showing in stark relief how what we have chosen to focus on -- consumerism, celebrity, charisma, and so forth -- obliterates what is unique in the Jesus way.
