In Christ plays in Ten Thousand Places, Eugene Peterson has reminded us that spiritual theology must be about God and not about us. What better context could there be for continuing the conversation that he has begun than in an intensive study, either on one's own or in a group? This guides enables study groups in schools or churches to delve deeply into Eugene Peterson's long-awaited work on spiritual theology. His insights into the vacuous nature of contemporary spirituality and the Christ-centered antidote will be carried to wilder audience with this accessible study guide. Penned with Peter Santucci, and able pastor in his own right study guide should introduce even more people to the wisdom of Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places.
"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 book 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.
