"A quiet, unassuming man, Peterson defies the typical definition of pastor and teacher. He is indeed subversive, quietly feeding his flock what they really need, not what they think they want. This book continues in that tradition. Along the way readers will be blessed with profound writing, and definitions of what it truly means to live an examined, Christ-like life."
— Clergy Journal
"Peterson's writing displays a pastor's heart and an intellectual's mind. . . This is a lively and deeply thoughtful book. The topics are widely divergent, but all focus on the ministry and how our contemporary society can understand the gospel. Never far from biblical texts and images, this book is creative in its understanding and presentation of the gospel. Any pastor would be well served to spend time with this excellent introduction to Peterson's theology and its application to the modern world."
— Presbyterians Today
"A wonderfully refreshing collection of essays, articles, addresses, poetry, and conversations with one of the great Presbyterian pastors of our day . . . The author's soul shines through each of these forms with clarity and consistency."

"One word describes Eugene Peterson's Subversive Spirituality: rich. . . Overall, the work is steeped with pastoral insight and wisdom, and the style is fluid and literary. . . Perhaps Subversive Spirituality will serve as a reformation call to contemporary Christianity."
