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. Despite the claims of contemporary books, the task of readers of Revelation is not to discover the true identity of its characters and events, or to figure out exactly where we are in the countdown to Armageddon. Rather, the powerful overriding message of Revelation is that since the first coming of Christ, God reigns unchallenged in heaven. Revelation was not intended to be read alone silently. Don't miss the blessing pronounced on those who read it aloud and those who hear it read.
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.
