Living The Resurrection by Eugene Peterson

Eugene Peterson who is know for The Message paraphrase of the Bible takes on the subject of the Resurrection of Jesus and how it should effect our everyday lives. 
This was a very Short book and I felt alittle rushed in spots like the author was trying to get alot of information into the book with a small amount of space.  I had to reread a few passages because I really couldn't figure out where the author was trying to go to, but after I reread it I figured it out.
All that being said I felt that it was a very beneficial book and it made me look at the Resurrection in a whole new way.
 The book is divided up into Three Sections: Resurrection Wonder, Resurrection Meals and Resurrection Friends.  I personally got the most benefit out of the section Resurrection Wonder.  The Author talks about how in our culture we need to get back the Wonder of The Resurrection and come at it like a child.

The Main thing I took away from this book was a quote from a little girl who was talking to her Grandmother.  "Grandmother, let's not have any God talk okay? I believe that God is everywhere. Let's just get on with life."  I think that we Christians do just that,h ave alot of God talk and don't get on with our lives.
