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.
