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. The Acts of the Apostles reads as a sequel, second after the Gosple of Luke. It reports the birth, infancy, and explosive growth of the Church of Jesus Christ, picking up the story at the day of Jesus' ascension. The dramatic action in Acts is every bit as heart-pounding as in the Gospel: the conversion of three thousand people in one day, the stoning of Stephen, the imprisonment of faithful followers, and the transformation of venomous Saul into fearless Paul.
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.
