I discovered lectio divina many years ago, during a very spiritually dry time in my life. In the time since, I have practiced lectio innumerable times, and it’s become a core aspect of my spirituality. Maybe even more importantly, it’s given me a renewed sense of love and appreciation for the Bible (and that’s saying something).
A few years back, I wrote a book on the practice of lectio divina. It’s called Divine Intervention: Encountering God Through the Ancient Practice of Lectio Divina, and this week you can get the Kindle version for 99¢.
