Overview
'Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places' reunites spirituality and theology in a cultural context where these two vital facets of Christian faith have been rent asunder. Lamenting the vacuous, often pagan nature of contemporary American spirituality, Eugene Peterson here firmly grounds spirituality once more in Trinitarian theology and offers a clear, practical statement of what it means to actually live out the Christian life. Writing in the conversational style that he is well known for, Peterson boldly sweeps out the misunderstandings that clutter conversations on spiritual theology and refurnishes the subject only with what is essential. As Peterson shows, spiritual theology, in order to be at once biblical and meaningful, must remain sensitive to ordinary life, present the Christian gospel, follow the narrative of Scripture, and be rooted in the "fear of the Lord" - in short, spiritual theology must be about God and not about us. The foundational book in a five-volume series on spiritual theology emerging from Peterson's pen, 'Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places' provides the conceptual and directional help we all need to live the Christian gospel well and maturely in the conditions that prevail in the church and world today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
"Spiritual" Reclaimed for the Spirit  Jul 14, 2009
"Christ Plays" is the opening salvo in Eugene Peterson's multivolume series on "spiritual theology." Peterson aims to recover the word "spiritual" for Christians out of the popular but vague fog it frequently refers to in contemporary culture. He wants to rejoin "spiritual" with "theology." When Peterson unites the two, he envisions a Christian faith that is robustly practical and unapologetically biblical. Spiritual theology is not solely for monks or academics; it's for everyday disciples of Jesus.

Peterson allows each section of the book to grow out of specific "grounding texts," biblical stories that shape the arenas of creation, history, and community. But these grounding texts are not a mere verse here or parable there. They are entire biblical books - Deuteronomy or Acts, for instance. Peterson masterfully navigates us through the details of their respective landscapes while never losing sight of the broader horizon. In fact, I was regularly amazed throughout "Christ Plays" by how Peterson managed to focus the reader not only on the story at hand (Acts, for example) but also on the sweep of the entire biblical story. "Chris Plays" demands multiple return visits.
 
Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places: A Conversation in Spiritual Theology  Jan 9, 2009
Eugene Peterson is a fabulous Teacher and writter.
This book came into my life at exactly the right time.
i needed to be reminded that the Physical Church that i attend is filled with people just like me, broken from not knowing.
I grewn up in an era where it's not been a good thing to be Christian and all of what that means.
This has been deeply influencing the church for a long time now, as pastors and teachers fear telling The Truth of Father Son and Holy Spirit will not be looked on favorably.
Now we have a population of people starving for The Truth, unable to love or be loved because we haven't a clue as to what it looks like.
Mr Peterson brings it all back home, settles it down, puts it in words we can understand and do.
i've given this book to a few and they are strengthened to go love the unlovable and Tell The Truth and set others free.
