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. Download and start listening now!

    " One of my favorites from Eugune. "

    " A conversation in the art of spiritual reading. Rec. by Ann Voskamp. Rec. by Scripture Union blog. "The author of The Message tackles an important question: how can Bible reading and prayer become a genuine dialog with God?" Very thought provoking. "

    " Really enjoyable read. Great stuff on spiritual reading of the text. And, he's a great writer. The last part is about The Message, his paraphrase of the Bible. If that's not you're cup of tea, you can skip that. But the first 2/3 is fantastic. "

    " A sort of primer on how to read the Bible, by the "translator" of the Message (and it includes a whole chapter on his philosophy and motivation to do the Message, which I found illuminating and helpful). Recommended to anyone who's been reading the Bible a long time. "
