Lectio Divina book?


#1

Recommendations for a good book on lectio divina? A family member is enjoying Dr. Timothy Gray’s but I haven’t gotten a chance to peek at it.

Thanks, friends.

The best book anywhere is Sacred Reading by Michael Casey. Michael is a Cistercian Monk. His book is widely read by monks in formation.

You may want to start with Michael’s paper titled “And The Word Became Text”.

Not a book, but some passages to start with focusequip.org/sls14/downloads/30-days-of-wrap-passages.pdf.
