Full Product Description
This approach treats Scripture not just as a book, or even a holy book, but the place of encounter with Christ. Reading therefore becomes a conversation, an act of listening, as attentive as that between lovers. Lectio Divina encourages us to hang on to every word, to turn phrases over and over as we would a love letter. This way, Scripture slowly transforms us.
This warm, wise and practical introduction is from an experienced guide who has trained many Benedictine monks and nuns in this spiritual discipline. It is ideal for complete beginners and experienced hands alike, and with gentle realism covers the theory and practice of lectio.
Holy Reading by Innocenzo Gargano was published by Canterbury Press in May 2007 and is our 39901st best seller. The ISBN for Holy Reading is 9781853117909.

Holy ReadingJohn Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
This little book is a translation of Lectio Divina by an Italian Benedictine monk; it deals with how to read the Bible in such a way that we are led to prayer and contemplation. The Holy Scriptures are not just a book to be read for interest and instruction, but as a meeting place where we encounter Christ most intimately. To read the Scriptures in the way that Gargano advises us is to immerse ourselves wholly in the inspired Word so as to bring to life the divine meaning implicit in every word and phrase. It is to read with the eye of the mind. Each step of our approach to the Bible is clearly and practically explained and will be an invaluable aid, not only to those unfamiliar with the Scriptures, but for those looking for a new and fresh approach to the Word of God.
