The resurrection of Jesus in not simply proof of his divinity, nor is the event something Christians should celebrate on one day of the liturgical year and then forget. The resurrection has crucial relevance for our spiritual formation every day.

Living the Resurrection immerses you in the life-changing experience of this biblical event. Join best-selling author and pastor Eugene Peterson as he reflects on the three aspects of Christ’s resurrection that define our lives and energize our faith:

  • Resurrection wonder as the central focus of our life in Christ
  • Resurrection meals as the invitation to spiritual formation in our most common daily experiences
  • Resurrection friends as the intimate fellowship in whose midst the risen Jesus makes his joyful home

With writing that is full of life, beauty, and prophetic insight, Living the Resurrection brings you to the central place of life and faith—the resurrection of Christ.

The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of spiritual disciplines. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about faith, meditation, and Christlikeness.

Eugene Peterson is a man on whom God’s wonder is not lost. Thanks to his pen, not even a day passes that I don’t read and sigh, ‘I never thought of it that way.’

Max Lucado, author

In this work, the resurrection ceases to be an abstract idea and is released again to be a force of wonder and fear that shapes our practice and life.

John Ortberg, senior pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, Menlo Park, CA

As spiritual formation bids to become a fad among contemporary evangelicals, Eugene Peterson’s Living in the Resurrection offers them an alternative path rooted in wonder and gives results that are more than cosmetic.

—Frederica Mathewes-Green, Eastern Orthodox author and speaker

Our love for the Lord of glory will surely swell to new heights thanks to the wondrous faith displayed in this book that at once instructs and inspires. May our reading of Eugene Peterson’s heartfelt reflections be an Easter treat all year long.

—Susan Muto, dean, Epiphany Academy of Formative Spirituality

Euguene Peterson is a master interpreter of Scripture, a master teller of tales, and, in this book, a master practitioner of resurrection. Peterson enables the Easter faith to become a vivid reality.
