About "Eat This Book (Unabridged) (6cds)"
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.

I love this series. "Eat This Book" is the second in Peterson's brilliant series and it's centred on the wonder and beauty of the Bible - something the author knows acutely from his decades spent translating it to produce the Message. There are some interesting stories about translation and culture, but the main aim is to help us read the Bible in such a way that it becomes a part of us.
