Practice Resurrection Practice Resurrection Wm. B. Eerdmans

Eugene H. Peterson
Wm B. Eerdmans, 2010

In this last book in the "conversation" series, Peterson takes St. Paul's letter to the Ephesians as his model for today's church congregations who struggle with growing up in Christ and achieving spiritual maturity. Peterson calls us to re-examine the central features of our faith such as peace, grace, salvation, and love as revealed in Christ and embrace the reality of the resurrection in our midst.

The second misunderstanding is that the church, the "real church," is invisible. Church is a mystical company of souls who have little to do with one another apart from occasional gatherings of like-minded souls, people who share the "right vibes." It has little, maybe nothing, to do with bodies and buildings. Bodies and buildings are all right in their place, but they are not the church. The church is entirely spiritual. There are variations in the way these misunderstanding are expressed, but both of them are an essential denial of what our Scriptures reveal as a church...." (pp. 163-164)
