Book five of Eugene Peterson's landmark SPIRITUAL THEOLOGY series: foundational reading for the twenty-first-century church. Continuing Peterson's evaluation of contemporary Christian spirituality, PRACTISE RESURRECTION is a study of the book of Ephesians. It is often thought to be Paul's most difficult letter, but has been for over thirty years Peterson's text for his identity as a pastor. Peterson points out that although Christians emphasise the importance of new birth, growth is equally important. This book is a conversation on spiritual formation and what it means to become a mature Christian. As with the first four books in this series, PRACTISE RESURRECTION is written for both lay and academic audiences. Challenging but deeply rewarding, it combines scholarship with the human experience and lightness of touch for which Peterson is known.

This book Practicing the Presence of the Living God intends to be a guide for a spiritual journey. It can be used in a retreat center, at home, or at work when you are able to secure a few moments of quiet solitude and silence. It is structured around seven days - the number of days normally used for a spiritual retreat. However, the seven days can be reduced to a weekend if this is all the time you can afford. It can also be spread to a much longer time if your circumstances do not allow you to have this amount of hours at the same time. All that you need it your total self. God is totally present to you and you should be totally present to God also. It is based on Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection's little book The Practice of the Presence of God. The content of Brother Lawrence's book encompasses a lifelong application that is life changing. Its message is transformative in its utmost clarity and simplicity because it reveals the heart and soul of everyone's life purpose and work - to live joyfully in the presence of God no matter what our circumstances are. In his book Brother Lawrence reveals a very ordinary life that most of us would not really desire and yet as he fulfilled his everyday duties in the midst of the most mundane and tedious tasks, he learned to live the happiest and most rewarding life. With his gracious humility, "he thought...only of doing little things for the love of God, since he was not capable to doing great things." Indeed, he modeled a life lived in the glory of God's love, peace, and joy. No wonder his book was called a "little spiritual classic," a "devotional masterpiece," an "unparalleled classic," and a book "relevant and timeless." Jean Maalouf in his thorough knowledge of Brother Lawrence's teachings becomes an exceptional guide for a retreat with Brother Lawrence.

Dare to Go There Although the cross is God’s decisive deed in human history, the full meaning of it is far too much for a mere human mind to grasp.

You’ll be overwhelmed with the utter significance of Christ’s death, leading you to a stronger sense of God’s power in your daily life.

Practice surrendering to the deeper dimensions of the cross, so that nothing can block the Lord’s presence and power in your life! “Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:27 Are you ready to destroy a casual attitude toward sin? To eliminate every barrier blocking the Lord’s presence and power in your life? Then you are ready to make the cross your own. This eight-week Bible study companion to Henry Blackaby’s Experiencing the Cross provides the practical tools you need to: LESSON 1 Grasp the graveness of sin LESSON 2 Comprehend Christ’s blood sacrifice LESSON 3 Grow in gratitude for the One who died your deserved death LESSON 4 Exchange your sin for Christ’s righteousness LESSON 5 Tap into God’s unlimited resources, blessings, and power LESSON 6 Submit to God’s sanctifying work in your life LESSON 7 Become alive to righteousness LESSON 8 Share the message of the cross with others The One who called you to this journey promises to be with you every step of the way. Go boldly forward to experience His blessings as they’ve never been seen, heard, or felt before. Receive the reality. Discover the power. Live the experience. For individual or group use. Leader’s guide included. Story Behind the Book “Our whole identity with Christ is found in the cross. It was there that God dealt totally with sin. And it is there that God intends us to be united with Christ in His death so that we would forever hate sin, abhor sin, and forsake sin. In our intimate relationship with Christ and His crucifixion, God intends for us to obtain His perspective on sin—to feel its horrors, as Christ does, and then to let God put sin to death in our lives—as He did in the crucifixion of His Son. The victory accomplished through Christ’s death and resurrection is the very same victory we can experience daily in our lives!” —Henry Blackaby From the Trade Paperback edition.

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 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.

Wendell Baerry has become ''mad'' at contemporary society. Gleaned from various collections of this amazing American voice, the poems take the shape of manifestos, insults, and Whitmanic ravings that are often funny in spite of themselves. The whole is a wonderful testimony to the power of humor to bring even the most terrible consequences into an otherwise unobtainable focus.
