Overview

Despite widespread interest in spirituality, its most common corporate form, congregational worship, is rarely discussed in those terms. Holy Conversation explores liturgical spirituality to as a holy conversation between God and us. Linking the themes of spirituality and worship and giving each needed focus in ways that are biblically and theologically rich and consistent with ecumenical traditions, this book specifically explores the relationship of sacred reading (lectio divina) to worship.

Raising important issues for worship renewal and interspersed with practical insights and suggestions, Jonathan Linman serves as an engaging guide for those who want to learn how to worship more fully, and, through the power of the Spirit, to deepen their awareness of the encounter with Christ made known in Word and Sacrament.
