Church as textured context

"Church is the textured context in which we grow up in Christ to maturity...

So, why church? The short answer is because the Holy Spirit formed it to be a colony of heaven in the country of death"

-quotes from Eugene Peterson, from the fifth and final volume in his Spiritual Theology series, "Practice Resurrection," now out. It has been described as an "informal commentary" on Ephesians.

Someone give this guy a raise.
He's only 77.

Some of the book is viewable on Google Books already.
Len Hjalamarson has posted,and Scot McKnight has posted several days of excerpts and commentary.

If Peterson is new to you...for a good time ,click his name "label" beneath this post.
Or start with his video comments on "Hmm, Isaiah vs. Bono."
