Peterson does a great job of combining philosophy, theology, and history to present his message of how to follow Jesus. He uses Moses, David, Elijah, Isaiah, and others as examples of how to love God. ( )

Following his Eat This Book as the third of a five-volume series on spiritual theology, Eugene Peterson continues his theological conversation with the church in The Jesus Way. Here he considers all the ways that Jesus is the Way compared to the distorted ways the modern American church has chosen to follow. Arguing that the way Jesus leads and the way that we follow are symbiotic, Peterson begins with an extensive study of how the ways of those who came before Christ a Abraham, Moses, David, Elijah, Isaiah of Jerusalem, and Isaiah of the Exile a revealed and prepared the way of the Lord that became complete in Jesus. He then challenges the ways of the contemporary American church, showing in stark relief how what we have chosen to focus on consumerism, celebrity, charisma, and so on obliterates what is unique in the Jesus way. A stunning analysis of the gap between the personal Jesus and the impersonal modern church, The Jesus Way: A Conversation on the Ways That Jesus Is the Way is sure to engender debate and to inspire a movement back to the true way of Christ.
