Item Description...
Overview
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 entrée into the formative, life-changing art of spiritual reading.

Publishers Description
Eugene 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A meaty little book  Mar 8, 2007
I read this book aloud. The expressiveness of the language really shone. I found it a timely inspirational book that has inspired me to continue reading the Bible particularly The Message. The wisdom , integrity, scholarship and passion of the writer impressed me. An easy must read for people who want to grow in faith in a vital relevant way by ingesting the message of the Bible.
 
please do  Jan 18, 2007
This is a great book by the author of "The Message" which is a wonderful, modern translation of the Bible. It is well worth the time and will definitely benefit one with an open heart.
 
Refocuses how you approach Scripture  Jan 11, 2007
Along with John Ortberg's "The Life You've Always Wanted" and J.G. Marking's "A Voice Is Calling," this book has done the most in my life to help me get a fresh look at entering the Word of God. Peterson does an amazing job of challenging the reader to not only read Scripture but to encounter the Word, expecting transformation.

I believe this is Peterson's greatest strength is that he believes and thus conveys to the reader how vital seeking the presence of Christ within the pages of Scripture instead of simply looking for information.

Peterson brings up a number of good points, especially that it is not so much whether you are reading the Bible that counts but how you read it because how you approach it ultimately determines just how much you get out of it and how much you can then grow.

Though sometimes long-winded, the book is a great discussion and examination without boring but engaging the reader.

Fantastic.
 
In love with himself  Jan 11, 2007
While the book had some valid points, Peterson's main thrust seemed to be promotion of his own Bible translation and criticism of other scholars. The argument that "X says Y, but he's pretentious so don't listen to him." I bought this to read for a book group and our response was pretty similiar. While it persuade me to sit down and read the Bible more regularly it didn't teach me much about "the art of spiritual reading". It just told it was important to be grounded in the scriptures.
 
Don't Miss This Book!  Jan 3, 2007
I'm sure I've read close to a million books, many of then Christian books. However, this book rates right up there at the top of them all. In fact, I intend to immediately read it again. It can be used as a devotional. It is very illuminating concerning the art of Scripture translation. I learned so much I didn't know. I also love Peterson's Bible translation, "The Message." In "Eat This Book," he explains how his contemporary translation came about. Most important he instructs readers on the necessity of totally absorbing Scripture into their very bones and marrow and blood. The key to the real Christian life: live it out, now. Do it!
