Product Description

For 1500 years, Christians have used contemplative Bible study or "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.

In Divine Intervention, youth pastor Tony Jones helps students engage their faith through the four steps of Lectio Divina:

  • lectio (reading)
  • meditatio (meditation)
  • oratio (prayer)
  • contemplatio (contemplation)
Includes 12 Lectio Divina exercises with passages from The Message Bible.

Publisher's 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.
