Discover how to listen for God’s “voice” as you read the Holy Scriptures.
This new series of books is designed to open up the meaning of one ancient way of Christian prayer in a relatively short amount of time. In Praying the Holy Scriptures, the late Father Pennington:
* Briefly introduces “Three Steps to Daily Lectio” * Offers profound reflections of “Waiting on the Lord” and how to “Use Our Imaginations” in prayer * Presents ten examples of doing these things based on his own prayerful meditations.
The wisdom and advice in Praying the Holy Scriptures will guide you into a lifetime of changing how you read the Bible and how you pray.
M. BASIL PENNINGTON, OCSO, was a monk at St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts. Perhaps the most prolific and widely-travelled Cistercian monk in history, Pennington has written previously of his travels to India, China, Mount Athos, and now, the Holy Land. He was the author of numerous books including the classic, Centering Prayer (more than one million copies sold), O Holy Mountain, Journey in a Holy Land and Seeking His Mind (Paraclete). Dom Basil died in the summer of 2005 from injuries sustained in a car accident.
