Eugene Peterson is a man on whom God’s wonder is not lost. Thanks to his pen, not even a day passes that I don’t read and sigh, I never thought of it that way.

by John Eldredge, author of Wild at Heart
Eugene Peterson’s Living the Resurrection is a great gift—inspiring a major shift from understanding the Resurrection as an event to experiencing it as a practice we can engage in every day. And the result of practicing resurrection is no less than our transformation into the image of Christ! My heart soared in reading this work that connects dots that so desperately need to be connected; I am confident yours will as well!

As spiritual formation bids to become a fad among contemporary evangelicals, Eugene Peterson’s Living the Resurrection offers an alternative path rooted in wonder and gives results that are more than cosmetic.
by Frederica Mathewes-Green, author of The Illumined Heart
In this work, the Resurrection ceases to be an abstract idea and is released again to be a force of wonder and fear that shapes our practice and life.
by John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Church
Living the Resurrection: The Risen Christ in Everyday Life has had a profound influence on my ministry and writing. Peterson is among the few who write about the Resurrection in the present tense—as a reality for us to live into and experience in the here and now. I’m grateful for this summons to not just believe but experience the center of our faith—today.
by Robert Gelinas, lead pastor of Colorado Community Church, author of Discipled by Jesus
Our love for the Lord of glory will surely swell to new heights thanks to the wondrous faith displayed in this book that at once instructs and inspires. May our reading of Eugene Peterson’s heartfelt reflections be an Easter treat all year long.
by Susan Muto, cofounder of Epiphany Association Academy of Formative Spirituality
Eugene Peterson is a master interpreter of Scripture, a master teller of tales, and in this book, a master practitioner of resurrection. Peterson enables the Easter faith to become a vivid reality.
