Eugene Peterson's Spiritual Theology series provides a completely fresh evaluation of Christian Spirituality, past, present and future. The best-selling author of THE MESSAGE 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. Petrson's masterwork, which has been years in the making, is designed for those who are comfortable with being stretched, as well as pastors, academics and lay leaders. Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places is Book One in a five-part series, and concentrates on 'clearing the playing field', evaluating Spirituality as it is understood today.

About the Author:

Eugene Peterson is a pastor, scholar, writer and poet. As author of THE MESSAGE - the multi-million-selling contemporary-language paraphrase of the Bible - he is one of the best-selling and most respected Christian authors in the world today. Currently Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology at Regent College, Vancouver, Peterson was for thirty years pastor of a flourishing church which he also founded.

Review:

'This rich book makes us alert to the way Christ is present in the world and in the Church. It helps us to deepen our appreciation of Christ and what he has done.' -- Alister McGrath 20110401 Eugene Peterson knows how to share Biblical and theological insights in ways that both inform and excite his readers, and in this work he excels even his own high standards. The combination of reflections drawn from his own experience, and the way he connects them with stories from the Bible and the wider Christian tradition, not only offers an intellectually rigorous model for doing theology in today's world, but will also inspire readers who wish to express their spirituality in ways that connect with the realities of everyday experience as well as being true to the historic Christian faith. -- John Drane 20110401 The author is to be thanked and congratulated for addressing two of the most fundamental problems that face Christianity today: first, that our talk about God (theology) has cut adrift from our experience of God (spirituality) and secondly, that spirituality itself has become so abstract that it fails to focus on the ordinary, everyday material conditions of our existence, which is the only place we can meet God. Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places is a book for all places, for all times, for all peoples and for all situations, however tragic and hopefless they may seem to be. -- Gerard Hughes 20110401
