Eat This Book

Full Product Description

Continuing Peterson's major evaluation of contemporary Christian spirituality, Eat This Book focuses on spiritual reading.

Taking its title from the angel's instruction to John in the book of Revelation: 'Take it and eat it; it will be bitter in your stomach, but sweet as honey in your mouth', Eat This Book discusses the benefits of reading Scripture and the challenges of engaging with it today.

As with other books in the series, Eat This Book is written for both academic and lay audiences. Challenging but rewarding, it combines first-rate scholarship with illustrations drawn from raw human experience.

Eugene Peterson is a pastor, scholar, writer and poet. As author of The Message, the multi-million-selling contemporary-language paraphrase of the Bible, he is one of the bestselling and most respected Christian authors in the world today. He was Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia until retiring in 2006.

'Peterson's exposition of lectio divina is one of the fullest to appear in recent years... A worthy sequel to his 2004 hit CHRIST PLAYS IN TEN THOUSAND PLACES' Publishers Weekly

'A tour de force in spiritual theology, combining incisive cultural analysis and biblical exposition with a sweeping and engaging vision of the Christian life (for CHRIST PLAYS IN TEN THOUSAND PLACES)' Christianity Today

'Rich, generous, and wise, Peterson's 'conversation' will help readers at every stage of faith to live their faith more deeply (for CHRIST PLAYS IN TEN THOUSAND PLACES)' Publishers Weekly
