    DescriptionEugene Peterson is convinced that the "way" we read the Bible is as important as "that" we read the Bible. Do we read it for information about God and salvation, for principles and "truths" that we can use to live better? Or do we read it in order to listen to God and respond in prayer and obedience? "Eat This Book" challenges us to read the Scriptures on their own terms, as God's revelation, and to live them as we read them. With warmth and wisdom Peterson offers much-needed, down-to-earth counsel on spiritual reading. Along the way, he draws readers into a fascinating conversation about the nature of language, the ancient practice of "lectio divina," and the role of translations, including his own best-selling contemporary Bible translation, "The Message."Countering the turn towards subjective personal interpretation as the final authority, Peterson gives the reader something substantial instead; a way to enter into a world of serious spiritual reading.

    Eugene Peterson is convinced that the "way" we read the Bible is as important as "that" we read it. Do we read the Bible for information about God and salvation, for principles and "truths" that we can use to live better? Or do we read it in order to listen to God and respond in prayer and obedience?The second part of Peterson's momentous five-volume work on spiritual theology, "Eat This Book" challenges us to read the Scriptures on their own terms, as God's revelation, and to live them as we read them. With warmth and wisdom Peterson offers greatly needed, down-to-earth counsel on spiritual reading. In these pages he draws readers into a fascinating conversation on the nature of language, the ancient practice of "lectio divina," and the role of Scripture translations; included here is the "inside story" behind Peterson's own popular Bible translation, "The Message."Countering the widespread practice of using the Bible for self-serving purposes, Peterson here serves readers with a nourishing entrie into the formative, life-changing art of spiritual reading.
