Item description for A Handful of Fire: Praying Contemplatively with Scripture (More Resources to Enrich Your Lenten Journey) by Carole Marie Kelly & Bruno Barnhart...
Overview Sacred Scripture, which we hold in our hands so lightly, encloses a lumunous fire, a divine energy ready to draw us into its radiant mystery. A Handful of Fire: Praying Contemplatively with Scripture is the fruit of the personal experience and reflection of the author's many years of contemplative solitude. She invites you to journey into the heart of the Scriptures and into the depths of your own heart, where the divine light and fire dwell. In this book, Sr. Carole Marie Kelly draws you into an immediate relationship with the scriptural Word. She introduces various methods of approaching a scriptural text, offers help to see beyond what is familiar in a passage, and explores the diverse genre of Sacred Scripture, focusing on the experience of men and women of the Bible who encountered God in various ways. The last part of the book goes to the heart of the scriptural message: our call to union with God. These pages are alive with warmth, insight, and love for the Word of God. They can lead you to a fuller experience of the power, the light, and the mystery of Scripture, knowing that in it you hold "a handful of fire."
