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 work 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Laura | 1/30/2014

    " I am in LOVE with this book. The only kind of theology I care much about is the kind that we live out and that makes us love Jesus more-this book talks about exactly that. So far he has dug pretty deep into the creation story and the exodus story in ways that I haven't thought about before. Not the easiest read, but not too heady either. "

    " Very interesting and well written--though occasionally I find Peterson's style annoying (so many 1 word sentences and sentence fragments!), often it works quite well. The book is split into three sections where Peterson focuses on Christ's action in creation, history, and community. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Wade | 1/21/2014

    " This book is about Redemptive History and the story that God has always been telling. It's not bad, but I did not really get a whole lot out of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Joel | 1/5/2014

    " This is the most marked book I own. It is underlined, circled, bracketed with parentheses, exclamation marked, question marked, starred. Peterson engages me like I hadn't been engaged reading theology and I read a substantial amount of it. Compared to the writing skills of other theologians he is a poet. Not an easy read by any means, but one you may find that on the other side of it you're not quite the same. "Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places: A Conversation in Spiritual Theology" sits atop the three most influential books I've read in the last few years. Don't pick it up unless you mean it. "
