Sintesi dell'editore

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.

Good message but lost me with the writing style

What would have made Eat This Book better?

If the writer wrote more simply. Sentences were too wordy.

If you’ve listened to books by Eugene H. Peterson before, how does this one compare?

I have not listened to this author before and probably would not listen to any of his other books because of his writing style.

What aspect of Grover Gardner’s performance would you have changed?

I love the way Grover Gardner narrates. His performance is probably the only reason I hung in there as long as I did with this book although I eventually I just lost interest.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

From what I could get through the writing, the message was good but as I said, it was just hard to follow.

A Call To Make the Bible Part of You

What made the experience of listening to Eat This Book the most enjoyable?

Eugene Peterson as always has insightful and sometimes searing thoughts regarding the Bible and living the Christian life. At times it drags, but then, bam, he hits you between the eyes with a concept. Well worth hanging in and listening to the whole thing.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

What aspect of Grover Gardner’s performance would you have changed?

I do not care for the narrator's voice or his accent. It actually made me hesitate to order the next book, Christ Plays In Ten Thousand Places, but the material is good enough that I was willing to endure the narrator.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book will force you to examine your life as a Christian.

Outstanding book on Spiritual Theology

Would you consider the audio edition of Eat This Book to be better than the print version?

This is volume 2 of Eugene Petersons 5 volume series on Spiritual Theology. His style is very conversational and understandable. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series.

Great book, terrible audio direction

The narrator isn’t necessarily bad, although sounding a bit stern, but I can’t fathom why the director asked him to read ALL the footnotes. He will stop in the middle of a sentence to read the asterisk (title of the book or publication, version, editor, pages, date of publication) and that simply KILLS the enjoyment. Otherwise, the book is amazing and Eugene Peterson is an incredible teacher. Maybe stick to the paper version for now.

Why Read The Footnotes?

Eugene Peterson is one of my all-time favorite authors, and pastors. I have been deeply influenced by his work. This is a great book, however, the author reads each footnote reference; breaking the cadence, and rhythm of the book. I was unable to finish listening to it because of this distraction. I will purchase a hardcopy to finish it.

Footnotes

Don’t like footnotes in the body of the text. Other than that helped me get my required reading in. Peterson is a good story teller and his prime focus in allowing the Bible to change us is good.

The footnotes though...

The content of this book is great. I’d give it 5 stars if it wasn’t for the narration. Whoever decided that the footnotes needed to be read out loud made a huge mistake. The flow is broken up with publishers’ info, years and page numbers, every 3-4 sentences. Very annoying...

Mind opening!

In an attempt to read and understand my bible, I have dug into Petersons literature and again, was not disappointed! Lots of meaningful information in a format that was easy to understand and apply!

Most helpful book on translation!

This is the most helpful book on translation I have ever studied. Truly made me understand it to its deepest and most human core. It's a must read for anyone interested in Bible translation and the many ways it's done and promoted today.
