Overview

Experience Scripture through Lectio Divina

Ancient-Future Bible Study incorporates contemporary study of the Bible with an experience of the church's most ancient way of reading Scripture, lectio divina. Designed for use by individuals or groups, these guides offer a transforming experience of the Word of God. An introduction to lectio divina and leader's notes are included.

"Stephen Binz has bridged the gap between contemplative biblical study and practical application. This is a rare achievement that many readers of Scripture will find profound and spiritually formative."--Thomas C. Oden, general editor, Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture

"In the Ancient-Future Bible Study series, Stephen Binz opens our minds, imaginations, and hearts to the experience of Scripture that God intends. In each book he leads us through the movements of lectio divina so that by understanding the Word and meditating on it we are drawn closer to the Lord in prayer and prompted to act on it. I believe that users of this series will encounter the Holy Spirit and find themselves enfolded in God's love."--Bert Ghezzi, author, Adventures in Daily Prayer

"The Ancient-Future Bible Study series revives a simple, time-honored framework for listening to God's voice known as lectio divina. This framework does not so much constrain as bring liberty--liberty to explore, to listen, and to grow. Stephen Binz's work is carefully considered, richly textured, and solidly grounded. His seed thoughts will help you dwell richly in the Word."--David Neff, editor in chief, Christianity Today
