Author: Eugene H. Peterson

[Image: Eat This Book: A Conversation in the Art of Spiritual Reading]

A magnificent guide on how to really read the Bible

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 a nourishing entrée into the formative, life-changing art of spiritual reading.

Eat This Book: Study Guide
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 through a fascinating conversation on the nature of language, the ancient practice of lectio divina, and the role of Scripture translations. What better way to continue that conversation than through an intensive study with other readers?

This helpful study guide is designed to enable small groups in schools or churches — or even individuals — to delve deeper into the timely wisdom of Eat This Book. Peterson’s discussion is here broken up into nine “sessions,” each of which contains a summary, quotations to consider, questions for interaction, and a suggested activity, ending with a suggestion for prayer.
