Thought-provoking and helpful for readers who want a different, sometimes contrarian, perspective on Christian discipleship.
A beautiful harmony of voices in the book that speaks gospel to contemporary kindergarten teachers, bankers, lawyers and homemakers.
Petersons writing style forces the reader to slow down and pay attention to words and metaphors, which is only fitting since part of his message is that we should slow down and pay attention.
Sharing the Practice
As vintage Peterson, this study bears all the marks of wisdom gleaned through a faithful walk with people and a deep immersion into Scripture. . . . This book was, I discovered, not a text for speed reading but rather for deliberate pondering.
"It is filled with many gems. . . . Practice Resurrection has plenty of depths to be mined for the pastor and layperson alike. . . . Within its pages there is much that is well worth reading and digesting.
A gem, a biblically rooted, exegetically precise, wisely expressed gem. Its one of the best books Ive read in recent months, maybe years. For Baptists and Presbyterians and Pentecostals and Anglicans -- this ones for us.
The book is a joy to read, not only for its rich insights on growing up in Christ, but for the beauty of its prose. . . . This book is a magnificent finish to Petersons tour de force in spiritual theology.
Congregational Libraries Today
This is essential reading for students of the New Testament and for church leaders ready for a refresher course in Christian life.
Those who have already been mentored through Petersons prolific writing will doubtless welcome this newest addition to their collections. Those who have not yet encountered his books will find a worthy introduction in this volume on growing up in Christ.
Peterson is a poet, a master of words, and speaks in constant metaphor. . . . When I take Petersons work in bite-sized pieces, a rich reward results every time.
