Description

Christians feed on Scripture. Holy Scripture nurtures the Holy Community as food nurtures the human body. Enormous amounts of energy, intelligence and prayer are spent in learning how to "eat this book" after the manner of Ezekiel in Babylon and John on Patmos. In "Eat this Book" Peterson counters the widespread practise of taking personal experience as the final authority for spirituality and calls us back to the Christian Scritpures - not as critics or technicians, but as participants.
