This summer, Kenzie is recommending the book "The Jesus Way: A Conversation on the Ways That Jesus is the Way" by Eugene Peterson.

The Jesus Way part of Eugene Peterson's meaty "conversations" on spiritual theology

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.

Here's a quote from the book:

My concern is with the responsibility of Christians, every Christian, to develop awareness and facility in the ways of Jesus as we go about our daily lives following Jesus in home and workplace, neighborhood and congregation, so that our following is consonant with his leading.
