Product Description

For those seeking to return to the sources of ancient Christian spiritual wisdom, Sacred Reading offers a valuable entry point. This work offers a bold and engaging examination of the Western tradition of lectio divina, the contemplative approach to sacred writings, notably the Bible and the spiritual classics. Lecto divina is much more than a way to grasp words on a page; it is a technique of reading from a devotional perspective. Michael Casey writes eloquently and with great learning about this ancient technique of prayer. Casey's insights, distilled from his deep acquaintance with the Bible and with the ancient books of Western spirituality, clarify the ways meditative practices can be sustained and invigorated.
