Item description for Eat This Book: Study Guide (Spiritual Theology #2) by Eugene H. Peterson & Peter Santucci...
Overview The second part of Peterson's rich conversation on spiritual theology offers a nourishing entree into the formative, life-changing art of spiritual reading.
Publishers Description Eugene Paterson is convinced that the way we read the Bible is as important as that we read the Bible. Do we read it 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? This guide to Peterson's groundbreaking work enables study groups in schools or churches to delve deeply into his advice on how we should read scripture, leading through the four elements of lectio divina: lectio (we read the text), meditatio (we mediate the text), oratio (we pray the text), and contemplatio (we live the text). Penned with Peter Santucci, and able pastor in the his own right, this study guide should introduce even more people to the wisdom of Eat This Book.

Good review of Bible Translations Mar 12, 2007
Peterson does a great job of explaining where the different Bible translations came from. He also tells his motivation for writing the Message. The Message uses the "ordinary", "everyday" Greek that folks in Bible times used to make a grocery list. Some of the more "scholarly" translations introduced additional Greek words that obscure the true meaning of the Scripture.
