Winner of Christianity Today Book Award for best book in spirituality.

In Practice Resurrection Eugene 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.”

Though bringing people to new birth in Christ through evangelism is essential, he says, 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. We are generally uneasy with the quiet, obscure conditions in which growth takes place, and building maturity in Christ too often gets relegated to footnote status in the text of our lives.

Peterson’s robust discussion will move readers to restore transformed Christian character to the center of their lives.

  • Uses Paul's letter to the Ephesians to analyze the importance of spiritual maturity
  • Encourages readers to restore transformed Christian character to the center of their lives
  • Presents a conversation on becoming a mature Christian, Christian formation, growing up to the stature of Christ
  • Ephesus and the Ephesians
  • The Blessing of God
  • The Creation of Church
  • The Congregation at Work
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!

Marva J. Dawn, author of Reaching Out without Dumbing Down

Thought-provoking and helpful for readers who want a different, sometimes contrarian, perspective on Christian discipleship.

Publishers Weekly
