9780802864901: Eat This Book: A Conversation in the Art of Spiritual Reading

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.

About the Author:

Eugene H. Peterson was a longtime pastor and is professor emeritus of spiritual theology at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia. His many other acclaimed books include Tell It Slant, The Jesus Way, Eat This Book, and the contemporary translation of the Bible titled The Message.,

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.
