9780340954898: Eat This Book

Christians feed on Scripture. Holy Scripture nurtures the Holy Community as food nurtures the human body. Enormous amounts of energy, intelligence and prayer are spent in learning how to "eat this book" after the manner of Ezekiel in Babylon and John on Patmos. In Eat this Book Peterson counters the widespread practice of taking personal experience as the final authority for spirituality and calls us back to the Christian Scriptures - not as critics or technicians, but as participants.

About the Author:

Eugene H. Peterson is Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology at Regent College. He has written numerous books, authored a commentary on the books of 1 & 2 Samuel, and translated the New Testament (The Message) and the Psalms into contemporary English.

From AudioFile:

Grover Gardners precise narration conveys Petersons somewhat redundant message on spiritual reading. Using the examples of the angel speaking to John, the Revelator, from the Book of Revelation, and Ezekiel, the biblical prophet, Gardner captures the metaphor in ringing tones, when he says, Eat the Book. Spiritual reading can be likened to a dog chewing on a succulent, juicy bone. Just as the dog chews, savors, and lingers over its bone, Peterson recommends that Christians chew and savor and linger over Holy Scripture. Gardners gentle vocal personality lends itself well to persuasion as he gives full value to the details of spiritual reading and encourages listeners to regain the lost art of biblical meditation.

The product of Peterson s many years experience as both pastor and professor of the highest calibre, this series combines first-class scholarship and genuine, lived application. Beautifully written, its presents a fresh and urgent evaluation of contemporary Christian spirituality. St John walks up to the angel and say, Give me the book. writes Peterson.
