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.

Editorial Reviews

Profound scholarship and spiritual wisdom. . . . Soak yourself in The Jesus Way.
” Dallas Willard
"As with Peterson's other volumes, The Jesus Way is marked by his careful, informed interpretation of biblical texts. Peterson is a biblical theologian and pastor in mind and heart. He also writes with precision and clarity."
” The Living Church
"Eminently readable. Recommended."
” Choice
"No one simply reads or, worse yet, skims Peterson. One ponders Peterson, as Peterson ponders the Bible."” Scot McKnight
