Number of pages: 128
An engaging and accessible guide to the classic practice of praying the Scriptures.
For centuries religious women and men contemplated the Word of God through the ancient practice of Lectio Divina, or sacred reading. Their meditative and attentive listening to God’s sacred Word penetrated their hearts and drew them deeply into the mystery of Christ.
Now women and men of every background can experience the enlightening and enriching prayer of Lectio Divina in their own lives. Benedictine Sr. Maria Tasto’s accessible introduction invites us to incorporate this ancient prayer practice in our own prayer lives. Guiding us along each step of the practice, Sr. Tasto helps us discover God’s spirit alive within us, and shows us how to allow the Word of God to shape and form our lives.
Whether beginning a journey of daily prayer or grounded deeply in spirituality, readers will find this guide to be an essential resource for their own faith life.
