Conversing with God in Advent: Praying the Sunday Readings with Lectio Divinaby Stephen J. Binz
In this book, respected biblical scholar Stephen J. Binz chooses the first Mass reading and the gospel
Lectio divina is an ancient spiritual practice that can help us to hear God speaking to us through the words of Scripture. In recent times, Pope Benedict XVI and a synod of bishops have recommended that lay people pray with the Scriptures using this method.
In this book, respected biblical scholar Stephen J. Binz chooses the first Mass reading and the gospel reading for each Sunday in cycles A, B, and C during Advent, as well as for the major feast days in the Christmas season. Then he leads readers through the steps of lectio divina—reading, meditation, prayer, contemplation, and action—by suggesting themes and verses on which to focus.
