    The book still has me asking God Questions, talking to fellow believers and more interested in the Word of God and a relationship with Christ than ever. I rate it very high (obviously).

    This book, though it makes a well received point regarding lectio divine and has challenged the way I read, is WAY too long and extremely repetitive. It could be edited down to about half its size without losing any significant content.

    Eugene Peterson is a master of illustrative writing. The very opening of the book with his story of his dogs with their found "bones" won me over and I couldn't put the book down. I look for all of his writings as he is a lover of "words" and makes them delicious. This is an important read because he creates a hunger to digest God's Word.

    The act of "eating this book" or <I>lectio divina</I> is encouraged in this book. Reading for relationship versus reading for facts. Petersen shows how to move into deeper bible study by entering into His story of our lives.

    Of how, why & what we are doing as we read the Bible, Mr. Peterson cleverly takes some of those pieces apart & then replaces the individual pieces back where they came from - mostly. I am currently not able to read the Bible, or even think of how I think of my regular life, just the same way as before. There is a super excellent run of thought Mr. Peterson wrote about concerning the "Replacement trinity", the new holy trinity of self (Pgs 31-35) our needs, our wants & our feelings..of course, there is plenty of room for God, as much or as little as you like. Whew! For me (ha!) - Great provoking material. Thanks Eugene.
