Overview

In an exceptional combination of an ancient form of Scripture study with historical, theological, and biblical perspectives, Stephen Binz leads us on a journey of enlightenment and appreciation.

In Lectio Divina Bible Study: Learning to Pray in Scripture, Binz shows us how various characters in the Bible prayed and what they can teach us about prayer. This volume also delves into the various types of prayer and what we can learn from them.

Lectio Divina, the ancient practice of Scripture immersion, is at the heart of this process. Combined with the tradition and scholarship of the Church, it explores complex topics with sequential steps of study, meditation, and internalization. Specifically, every chapter leads you forward through a sequence of:

Listening - Reading Scripture with expectancy, trusting that God will speak His Word to us through it

Understanding - Seeking to comprehend the meaning of the text, encountering God there and being changed by that encounter

Reflecting - Linking the truth of the Scriptures to the experience of faith in the world in which we live

Praying - A dialogue with God: we listen to God, then we respond in prayer

Acting - After prayerfully listening to God through a passage of Scripture, we should be inspired to make a difference in the way we live
