About This Product
 
Lectio divina, or divine reading, is the ancient Christian practice of communicating with God through the reading and study of Scripture. The Lectio Divina Bible Studies build on this time-honored tradition, inviting readers to listen to God as they read his word. The approach is built around eight steps, lectio, meditation, oratio, contemplation, silencio, incarnation, epitome, and praeparatio--all designed to help the reader slow down, read Scripture, meditate upon it, and prayerfully respond to God's Word.

Each Lectio Divina Study is designed around these elements:
  • Summary--a brief overview of the session
  • Silence--a time of quieting oneself before reading the Word
  • Preparation--focusing the mind on the central theme of the text
  • Reading--carefully reading a passage of Scripture
  • Meditation--exploring the meaning of the Bible passage
  • Contemplation--yielding oneself to God's will
  • Prayer--expressing praise, thanksgiving, confession, or agreement to God
  • Incarnation--resolving to act on the message of Scripture
 
80 pages.
