Publishers Description Lectio Divina, Latin for divine reading, is a series of Bible studies that calls Christians to slow down, read Scripture, meditate on it, and prayerfully respond as they "listen to God" through His Word. After years of following Christ, after years of spreading the Word and making disciples, Peter had earned a hearing, and he had a few things to say to the clusters of believers scattered across the provinces of Asia Minor via the persecutions of Nero. Peter's charge to the scattered, first-century church - written in light of Jesus' eminent return and his own impending martyrdom - rings ever so loudly today, "But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever Amen." (2 Peter 3:18)
Community Description Lectio Divina, Latin for "Divine Reading," is a series of Bible studies that calls Christians to "listen to the text," reading Scripture as a means of hearing from God. The series takes its title from an ancient Christian tradition, one used and adapted by John Wesley, that incorporates silence, reading, meditation and prayer in Bible study.
