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.

Book One in Eugene Peterson's landmark new five book series Spiritual Theology, 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 our world today. The Spiritual Theology series seeks to provide a completely fresh evaluation of Christian spirituality, past, present, and future. It draws on the very latest scholarship and understanding of biblical revelation, and will represent the most thorough and significant work on contemporary Christian spirituality by an evangelical author. Most writings in the field of spiritual theology represent mere dabblings. The more significant endeavours are impenetrably academic. Peterson's masterwork, which has been years in the making, is designed for those who are comfortable with being stretched, whether pastors, academics or lay leaders.
