Reviews - What do customers think about Conversing with God in Scripture: A Contemporary Approach to Lectio Divina?
Wonderful insight May 21, 2008
We just started using this in our weekly Bible study and have only read chapters 1 and 2. However, we have used several other commentaries by Stephen Binz in the past and love his easy-to-understand writing style and insight. This book is no exception. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a more-personal approach to Scripture - either in individual or group study. Thank you, Stephen Binz!
