Overview

The Bible testifies to the crucial role that the Sacraments play in God�s relationship with humankind. Yet sometimes we take them for granted and miss the true power and significance each Sacrament represents.

In a ground-breaking combination of one of the most ancient forms of Scripture study with the history, theology, and Scriptural perspective of the sacraments, Stephen Binz leads us on an incredible journey.

Lectio divina, the ancient practice of Scripture immersion, is at the heart of this process. 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 a passage of Scripture, we should be inspired to make a difference in the way we live

The Lectio Divina Bible Study series is suitable for parish, small group, or individual use.
