This new series, The Ancient Practices Series published by Thomas Nelson, edited by Phyllis Tickle. I find the series, the above 4 books published so far interesting reading. The series is fascinating because the authors of the four books published, with the exception of Robert Benson, are not well known as spiritual writers. They are more well known in the circle of the emerging church movement. Over the last few years, the emerging church movement has found a friend with the ancient-future church movement so I guess this is how this series of books come about. These books were written in the fashion of the emergent church movement with plenty of examples and personal relevance. Yet somehow I find that it lack the depth of those who are really seeped in the traditions of the contemplative or spirituality movement or traditions. I wonder if our age lack spiritual writers in the tradition of Thomas Merton and Henri Nouwen or in an earlier age Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross.

Eugene Peterson on Spiritual Theology

I always regard Eugene Peterson as one of the modern masters of spiritual theology. I am sure he does not think of himself that way. He was one of the few early Evangelicals who was into spiritual theology before it became popular. He is the Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology of Regent College, Vancouver, Canada. His earlier books are still worth reading. These five books of a conversation on spiritual theology together are Eugene Peterson's magnum opus on the subject.

 

2005

Jesus is God incarnate, a God who is immanent and transcendent. In this book, Peterson shows an immanent Christ that is present in us all and in creation. This forms the framework for the rest of the books on spiritual theology

 


 

2006

The book is about the Bible and how we as Christians are to understand the truths that are in it. Peterson, the author of The Message which is a modern paraphrase and translation of the Bible is in a unique position to show us what teaching and learning from the Word of God is about. He challenges us from mere cognitive understanding to propositional truths to assimilating and living it out the Bible - hence eat the book.

 


 

2007

How we do as disciples of Jesus Christ behave and live in this world is the subject of this book.

 


 

2008

Languages are important media of communications. In this book, Peterson takes on the way we understand truth and how our culture limits our understanding. Peterson shows us the way Jesus uses languages to teach his disciples.

 


 

2010

This is the final book in the series. Peterson wraps up his discourse on spiritual theology by exploring what spiritual growth or spiritual formation involves.

 

 and don't forget to read the Bible ...
