A way of sacrifice. A way of failure. A way on the margins. A way of holiness. All of these ways prepared the "way of the Lord" that became incarnate and complete in Jesus. But somewhere along the line, have we lost the way? In The Jesus Way Eugene Peterson continues his stimulating conversation in spiritual theology, considering all the ways that Jesus is the Way compared to the distorted ways the American church today has chosen to follow.

Arguing that the way Jesus leads and the way we follow are symbiotic, Peterson begins with a study of how the ways of those who came before Christ -- Abraham, Moses, David, Elijah, Isaiah of Jerusalem, and Isaiah of the Exile -- revealed and prepared the "way of the Lord" that became complete in Jesus. He then challenges the ways of the contemporary American church, showing in stark relief how what we have chosen to focus on -- consumerism, celebrity, charisma, and so forth -- obliterates what is unique in the Jesus way.

Read a blog post by Peterson about the book on EerdWord.
Dallas Willard
"Profound scholarship and spiritual wisdom. . . Soak yourself in The Jesus Way."
The Living Church
"As with Peterson's other volumes, The Jesus Way is marked by his careful, informed interpretation of biblical texts. Peterson is a biblical theologian and pastor in mind and heart. He also writes with precision and clarity."
"Eminently readable. Recommended."
Scot McKnight
"No one simply reads or, worse yet, skims Peterson. One ponders Peterson, as Peterson ponders the Bible."
