The Jesus Way

A Conversation on the Ways that Jesus is the Way

by Eugene H. Peterson

A way of sac­ri­fice. A way of fail­ure. A way on the mar­gins. A way of holi­ness. In The Jesus Way Eugene Peter­son shows how the ways of those who came before Christ―Abraham, Moses, David, Eli­jah, and Isaiah―revealed and pre­pared the way of the Lord” that became incar­nate and com­plete in Jesus. Fur­ther, Peter­son calls into ques­tion com­mon ways” fol­lowed by 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.
