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 entre into the formative, life-changing art of spiritual reading.
-Publisher.

Continuing 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.
