Take and Read (Spiritual Reading)

$41.99

Paperback
From classics to novels, from poems to mysteries - the writings recommended in this annotated list have deepened and nourished Eugene Peterson's own spiritual life. Discover his insights on works by Augustine, C S Lewis, Dostoyevsky, and many more. 176 pages, from Eerdmans

- Publisher Spiritual reading has fallen on bad times. Today, reading is largely a consumer activity, done for information that may fuel ambitions or careers-and the faster the better. Take and Read represents Eugene H. Peterson's attempt to rekindle the activity of spiritual reading, reading that considers any book that comes to hand in a spiritual way, tuned to the Spirit, alert to intimations of God. Take and Read provides an annotated list of the books that have stood the test of time and that, for Peterson, are spiritually formative in the Christian life. The books on this list range from standard spiritual classics to novels, poems, and mysteries, and include an equally broad spectrum of authors-from Augustine and C. S. Lewis to William Faulkner and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Annotations following each entry offer Peterson's own significant insights into the power of each work.
