    DescriptionContinuing Peterson's major evaluation of contemporary Christian spirituality, EAT THIS BOOK focuses on spiritual reading. Taking its title from the angel's instruction to John in the book of Revelation: 'Take it and eat it; it will be bitter in your stomach, but sweet as honey in your mouth', EAT THIS BOOK discusses the benefits of reading Scripture and the challenges of engaging with it today. As with other books in the series, EAT THIS BOOK is written for both academic and lay audiences. Challenging but rewarding, it combines first-rate scholarship with illustrations drawn from raw human experience.
