Product Description


Eat This Book challenges us to read the Scriptures on their own terms, as Gods 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 Petersons own popular Bible translation, The Message.

About the Author


Eugene Peterson

Eugene Peterson

EUGENE H. PETERSON (1932-2018) was a pastor, scholar, writer, and poet. In 1963, Eugene founded Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland, where he was the pastor for twenty-nine years. Following that, he was James M. Houston Professor of Spiritual Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, B.C., Canada from 1993 to 1998, and continued there as emeritus professor until 2006. He spent ten years working on The Message--a paraphrase of the Bible--translating it from the original Greek and Hebrew. He authored more than twenty books, including A Long Obedience in the Same Direction, The Contemplative Pastor, and Leap Over a Wall. Eugene died on October 22, 2018 in Montana at the age of 85. He and his wife, Jan, had three children and nine grandchildren.
