Christ Plays In Ten Thousand Places: A Conversation in Spiritual Theology (Paperback)Eugene Peterson (author)
- We can order this
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.
Also available in the Spiritual Theology series: Eat This Book, The Jesus Way, The Word Made Flesh and Practise Resurrection.

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. He will 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 *
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.
