THE WORD MADE FLESH is Eugene Peterson at his best: writing about words and the way we are called to use them.Continuing Peterson's evaluation of contemporary Christian Spirituality, THE WORD MADE FLESH is an extended meditation on language and the way it should be used in Christian community.As with the first three books in the series, THE WORD MADE FLESH is written for both lay and academic audiences. Challenging but deeply rewarding, it combines scholarship with the human experience and lightness of touch for which Peterson is known.Also available in the Spiritual Theology series: Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places, Eat This Book, The Jesus Way and Practise Resurrection.
Eugene Peterson has written over thirty books, including THE MESSAGE: THE BIBLE IN CONTEMPORARY LANGUAGE, which won the Gold Medallion Book Award. He read philosophy at Seattle Pacific University and was Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology at Vancouver's Regent College until his retirement in 2006. He now lives in Montana.
