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.

    I have used several of these titles in this series. This series is thoughtful, Biblically solid, and is extremely flexible. It can be done anywhere between 6 - 30 sessions. Don't let the Lectio Divina format or Catholic author deter you. This series is for all Christians. His commentary is thought provoking, unifying, comforting, and relevant. I appreciate the prayers for each session which make this series easy to use for anyone.
