Item description for Living the Resurrection: The Risen Christ in Everyday Life by Eugene H. Peterson...

This text explores three aspects of Christ's resurrection that define life and energize faith: the source of power for living, the fellowship of empowered believers, and the growth-producing network of relationships with others and with God.

Publishers Description

Reviews - What do customers think about Living The Resurrection?

Living the Resurrection  Aug 10, 2007
Rather deep introductory chapter, but a profound treatment of the basis for believing in the risen Christ.
The only way to live...  Jul 12, 2007
Peterson seems to say that, if we call ourselves "Christians," we have no choice but to live as if the resurrection really happened. He rejects religiosity in favor of faith and relationship, but he attaches new meaning to Christian practices like Holy Communion and he links "living the resurrection" with everyday life and ordinary activites.

You may never look at a supper with friends the same after fnishing this book.
Peterson's life summary of Christianity  Jun 27, 2007
Peterson has taken a 35 year calling as a pastor and another 20 years as a professor and summarized it into a single short easy-to-read book about the impact of the Resurrection on the people involved. A dynamite practical book which I purchased for sons and friends. One of the best books I have ever read.
Recovering authentic Christianity  May 31, 2007
One of the best books I have read on being an authentic Christian in the 21st Century. Packed with great insights, Peterson's Spirit-illuminated views provide accurate diagnosis combined with biblical remedies. It is a must read for anyone looking to make sense of how the secular worldviews have crept into the church and wants to recover how to seek God in the ordinariness of life.
well worth reading  May 27, 2006
I have become a huge fan of Eugene Peterson. He writes with an engaging prose style and his ideas are first rate. However, this book didn't move me in the same way that Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places and Eat This Book did.

Peterson posits that the resurrection should be the central organizing prinicpal of the Christian's life. The beginning place for this formation is in what he calls resurrecton wonder. This is rooted in keeping the Sabbath, marking us as having a different value system from society as a whole. He also places great emphasis on time spent together celebrating the resurrection and emphasizing the extrordinary power of everyday occurances. This is rooted in the celebration of Holy Communion. Finally, he reminds us that it is the company of believers who are on the journey together that help us to navigate the trip. These people are marked and named by baptism.

I highly reccomend this book. Though it did not move me in the same way as the previously mentioned works, it is quite helpful for the journey
