Lectio divina is a spiritual reading of God's words to us in the Bible. It is a way of slowing down (so difficult for us!) and absorbing their life-changing potential into our souls. When we read not only for information, but formation, we see the reality of the power of what God has given to us. Eat This Book by Eugene Peterson is an explorer's guide to lectio divina. He helps us not only understand God's Word, but to live it out. We heartily recommend getting a copy!
