Divine Intervention by Tony Jones

Book Description

Who says nothing is sacred?For 1500 years, Christians have used "sacred reading" or in Latin--"Lectio Divina"--as a way to tap into the power and vitality of God's Word. For ancient Christians such as St. Augustine, St. Francis, and others it was a pillar of one's daily relationship with God. Sound interesting? Learn how it works. Author and youth pastor Tony Jones explains the four steps of "Lectio Divina": "lectio" (reading), "meditatio" (meditation), "oratio" (prayer), and "contemplatio" (contemplation). You'll be amazed at the profound impact this practice will have on your spiritual life. Includes 12 "lectio divina" exercises in the back with passages from "The Message Remix."
