Lectio Divina, Latin for divine reading, is the ancient Christian practice of communicating with God through the reading and study of Scripture. This Bible study builds on this practice, introducing modern readers of the Bible to the time-honored tradition of "listening for God" through His Word incorporating silence, reading, meditation and prayer.
Paul wrote this letter to a church he'd never visited and was not sure that he ever would. It is a reasoned, intelligent argument of the whold message of the gospel. A favorite of believers down through the centuries, including Martin Luther who called it "the very purest Gospel". 8 Chapters
Lectio Divina, Latin for divine reading, is a series of Bible studies that calls Christians to slow down, read Scripture, meditate on it, and prayerfully respond as they "listen to God" through His Word. Paul wrote this letter to a church he'd never visited. He longed to meet these believers in person, but at this stage in his third missionary journey the severe opposition he was meeting among the Jews, particularly in Jerusalem, made him unsure that he'd never reach Rome. So, he wrote this letter that so beautifully describes the universal truth of salvation by faith for Jews and Gentiles together.
