Overview

Many Christians find prayer difficult - and, as a result, do not do much of it. The fact is, many simply do not know how to pray. Even St Paul notes this sad fact when, in Romans 8:26, he says, "We do not know how to pray as we ought."

In this short book, written for a popular audience by well-known Catholic biblical scholar Dr. Tim Gray, we discover the secret of the saints which can enable us to enter into a lively dialogue with God. Their secret: the ancient art of Lectio Divina (divine, or sacred reading), which is reading, meditating on, and praying the Scriptures. As St. Cyprian notes, "Diligently practice prayer and lectio divina. When you pray, you speak with God; when you read [the Scriptures], God speaks to you." Here, we discover that we don't need a mystic gene or divine epiphany to hear God; we simply need to take up the Bible and read.

This book is excellent for Catholic prayer, taking you from Lectio Divina to Contemplation. Dr. Gray ever goes so far as to explain what Contemplation actually is. Good for the beginner in Lectio Divina, but surprisingly sophisticated for those wishing to "turn that corner" prayerwise into Contemplation. Don't let the smallness of the book deceive you. He is very thorough and definitive.
