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.
