Publishers Description
Is it really possible to enter into a genuine conversation with God? Christians throughout the ages have done so using the ancient practice of lectio divina, or spiritual reading. In this practical and inspirational book, Stephen Binz shows how we can read and reflect on Scripture in ways that enable us to hear God speaking to us in our thoughts and hearts. He explains how to converse with God in prayer, which will lead to contemplation and life-changing action. With a clarity that all will welcome, Binz explains the elements, characteristics, and benefits of lectio divina. This book is suitable both for beginners and those seasoned in prayer as well as for those in faith-sharing and Bible study groups.

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!
