Product Description

The Ancient-Future Bible Study series incorporates contemporary study of the Bible with an experience of the church's most ancient way of reading Scripture, lectio divina. This time-honored practice consists of five basic movements:

1) biblical study (lectio)
2) reflection (meditatio)
3) prayer (oratio)
4) discernment (contemplatio)
5) contemplative action (operatio)

In six clearly written volumes, bestselling author Stephen Binz helps readers study the Bible in a way that leads to spiritual transformation and brings them closer to God. Binz leads readers in a vivid study of key biblical characters, including Abraham, Paul, Peter, David, the women of the Torah, and the women of the Gospels.

He shows all Christians who desire to have a transforming experience with the inspired Word of God how studying Scripture through lectio divina can enrich their discipleship. This ecumenical Bible study, designed for use by individuals or groups, includes questions for personal reflection and suggested action. Each volume includes leader's notes for guiding a study over the course of six sessions.

Author Bio

Stephen J. Binz (SSL, Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome) is a popular speaker and the highly regarded author of over two dozen books. He is the former director of Little Rock Scripture Study, used in churches throughout the world, and founder and author of Threshold Bible Study. He is also the former editor-in-chief of God's Word Today magazine and is a licensed psychotherapist. Binz lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Publisher's Weekly

The spiritual practice of lectio divina (sacred reading), a manner of reading the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures developed by early teachers in the church, has over the past decades enjoyed something of a revival among Roman Catholic and also some liturgical Protestant churches. In this volume, Binz, founder and author of the Threshold Bible Study, explains this contemplative practice and its steps, including meditation, prayer, contemplation, and action, and then shows its use. Threading the Hebrew scripture narrative of Abraham with places where it is picked up and interpreted in the New Testament, the writer offers many places for the reader to rest and reflect. The format of the book is designed to be used in multiple settings, from group studies to individual ones. This volume, and upcoming ones in the series, may appeal to Protestant readers who might never have been exposed to lectio divina--and it brings a laudable focus to some Biblical figures who may otherwise only pop up on Sunday mornings.
