Publisher's Summary

Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places reunites spirituality and theology in a cultural context where these two vital facets of Christian faith have been rent asunder. Lamenting the vacuous, often pagan nature of contemporary American spirituality, Eugene Peterson here firmly grounds spirituality once more in Trinitarian theology and offers a clear, practical statement of what it means to actually live out the Christian life.Writing in the conversational style that he is well known for, Peterson boldly sweeps out the misunderstandings that clutter conversations on spiritual theology and refurnishes the subject only with what is essential. As Peterson shows, spiritual theology, in order to be at once biblical and meaningful, must remain sensitive to ordinary life, present the Christian gospel, follow the narrative of Scripture, and be rooted in the "fear of the Lord" - in short, spiritual theology must be about God and not about us.The foundational work in a five-volume series on spiritual theology emerging from Peterson's pen, Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places provides the conceptual and directional help we all need to live the Christian gospel well and maturely in the conditions that prevail in the church and world today.

Beautiful, eloquent

Thoughtful and detailed, with special attention to the nuances and shades of meaning in the words of Scripture discussed Would we expect any less from the man who turned the entire Bible into an enormous poem?

I'm stopping at four stars, not five, because the emotional affect of this book was a little... muted. It was a beautiful commentary; insightful and interesting. But for a book largely on the topic of "everyday life lived out in community", Peterson's text was not actually all that practical, and while the scriptural commentary taught me many things I hadn't known or considered before, it lacked that delicious "aha" feeling of discovery or of total perspective shift.
