“Learning to Pray in Scripture” a practical prayer tool

October 2, 2014 | book review

Author Stephen Binz combines the ancient practice of Lectio Divina with theology, history, and Scripture as it relates to the Catholic Mass in a comprehensive new book that can be used by individuals or groups. Using the lectio practice of listening, understanding, reflecting, praying and acting, Binz takes readers through key Scripture passages, offering reflection points to get readers thinking about familiar Scripture scenes in new ways and offering practical suggestions for putting those words into action in daily life.

Here’s my official “blurb” for Lectio Divina Bible Study: Learning to Pray in Scripture (Our Sunday Visitor):

“For so many of us who want to pray effectively with Scripture, the prospect can be overwhelming. In Learning to Pray in Scripture, Stephen Binz gives us a spiritual road map to guide the way. Set against the backdrop of Lectio Divina, this beautiful and necessary book provides readers with the practical tools and inspiring words they need to use the Bible as the basis of regular prayer.”
