Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places: a Conversation in
Spiritual Theology –Eugene H. Peterson
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 shows that 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.

Eat This Book: a Conversation in the Art of Spiritual Reading –
Eugene H. Peterson
These five papers then represent a few of my efforts to
unpack and reflect on that Wesleyan perspective which is at
the heart of our understanding the doctrine of holiness.
Eugene Peterson maintains that how we read the Bible is as
important as that we read it. The second volume of
Peterson’s momentous five-part work on spiritual theology,
Eat This Book challenges us to read the Scriptures on their
own terms, as God’s revelation, and to live them as we read
them. Countering the widespread practice of using the Bible
for self-serving purposes, Peterson here serves readers with
a nourishing entrée into the formative, life-changing art of
spiritual reading.

The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism –Timothy
Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer
Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the
frequent doubts that skeptics and non-believers bring to
religion. Using literature, philosophy, anthropology, pop
culture, and intellectual reasoning, Keller explains how the
belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one.
To true believers he offers a solid platform on which to
stand against the backlash toward religion spawned by the
Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics
he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason
for God.
