Many of us thirst for a meaningful spiritual life. We may even begin a spiritual journey, yet before we are very far along, we discover we need help. Is the living, compassionate God revealed in scripture in a way that offers guidance and comfort to us in our contemporary lives? Norvene Vest says a resounding "Yes!" Using the classic spiritual practice of lectio divina or "divine reading" in the context of small, intimate prayer groups, she shows how this devotional and prayerful reading of the scriptures leads us to a deeper understanding of and relationship with God.
