Overview

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 laypeople pray with the Scriptures using this method. In this book, respected biblical scholar Stephen J. Binz chooses the first reading and the Gospel for each Sunday in cycles A, B, and C during the Easter season—all the way up until Pentecost. 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.
