Eugene Peterson's landmark Spiritual Theology series is foundational reading for the twenty-first century Church. The product of Peterson's many years' experience as both pastor and professor of the highest calibre, this series combines first-class scholarship and genuine, lived application. Beautifully written, its presents a fresh and urgent evaluation of contemporary Christian spirituality. 'St John walks up to the angel and say, "Give me the book."' writes Peterson. 'The angel hands it over, "Here it is; eat it, eat the book." And John does. He eats the book - not just reads it - he got it into his nerve endings, his reflexes, his imagination. The book he ate was Holy Scripture.'Eat This Book encourages the art of the reading the Bible so that it becomes a text for living and growing, not just thinking or behaving, and recasts the ancient discipline of lectio divina - spiritual reading - for a postmodern culture. Also available in the Spiritual Theology series: Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places, The Jesus Way, The Word Made Flesh and Practise Resurrection.
