    Another book I was perusing in preparation for my reading class I m going to create a secular lectio divina type exercise, so I wanted to read about it After reading about monks and their reading practices, the long history of the art of lectio divina in the church, I feel that monkish practices may appear in my class There is an underlying of personal reading as part of a shared reading community that I really like, and I m mulling over ways of making that happen Perhaps we shall start each class with monkish time This is very specific to the spiritual practices of monks within the Christian tradition, but attempts to make the concepts applicable to a normal person The goal of lectio divina is very much about communing with God in the end, using the study of religious texts as a way to gain greater insight and access I m going to turn it on its head by taking out the sacred part, but I enjoyed reading about this tradition.

    I picked up a copy at a short conference on Lectio Divina at St Mary s Monastery in Petersham, MA This is a book I will turn to again and again for the rest of my life First of all, it s an excellent introduction to the practice of Lectio Divina But what I found really remarkable about it was the depth and wisdom of the author coming through, almost leaping, off the page I m not accustomed to being around older, spiritually mature men and women of faith and Michael Casey s ability to situate the practice of Lectio Divina in an ecclesiastical, spiritual, and theological context is the sort of reading that fills that void.

    This book is about the traditional Catholic practice of lectio divina reading scripture meditatively in a prayerful spirit I requested it blind from PBS and was a little nervous because sometimes, unfortunately, Catholic spirituality can be mixed with relativism and over homage to other religions to the point of diluting the richness of the deposit of faith However, it turned out to be both solid and perceptive and scholarly I am glad to have a book on lectio divina on my shelves.

    Excellent Takes lectio a bit deeper than the intro books.

    The art of lectio divina, literally holy reading is a long established practice in the Christian spiritual life, particularly in the various monastic traditions of the Christian Church, both east and west The practice dates to the very beginning of Christianity, though it became intrinsic to the monastic tradition based on the Rule of St Benedict, becoming a daily practice of those within the monastery.The practice of lectio divina has escaped the monastic enclosure and become increasingly popular among many Christian seekers who, in particular, wish to become intimately aware of God speaking to them through the Scriptures Though by no means limited to the holy reading of the biblical texts, the deliberate, meditative, and slow reading of the bible is all but identifiable with lectio divina.This book by the Cistercian monk Michael Casey is a book for those practitioners of lectio divina who have been practising this art form for a while, yet who are looking to develop and refine their practice This book assumes that the reader is already practising lectio divina and is familiar with the basics of the practice It is, therefore, not a book for beginners.Reflecting on his own practice over many years, Casey helps the practitioner of lectio divina with some advice in a number of spheres, with a particular focus on how to persevere in times of difficulty, and how to go that little bit deeper into the practice in order to hear God truly speak Highlighting a few of the pitfalls that might come their way although without insisting that they will occur Casey gently encourages the readers of this book to continue with this wonderful means of allowing God to speak to them.For anyone who regularly undertakes lectio divina, this book is a must read.

    Really lovely and helpful book on lectio divina the content is both profound and succinct, drawing on the wealth of the Church s tradition especially as it exists in the monastic context , as well as the author s own practical experience.


  7. says:

    Probably the best book on Lectio Divina for the systematically minded modern person Not to say it does not have its roots in experience, but the way it is written is very straight forward in order to give a person the best overall knowledge of what Lectio is and why it is so important to spiritual growth With that said, it might be good to read it in conjunction with Mariano Magrassi s Praying the Bible An Introduction to Lectio Divina, or if short on time, Masini s short work on Lectio Divina All contribute to a deeper understanding of Lectio I would have to say though, that Casey s book is a must out of those three.


  8. says:

    I was looking for some good how to material on the discipline of lectio divina This book did a little bit of that but also laid a good foundation for the practice.My thirst to know about this spiritual practice was certainly increased by Casey s writing Although it was perhaps a little about history and theory, there was enough practical information to get me started.He is definitely and engaging and thoughtful writer I will be looking to read one of his earlier books, Toward God.


  9. says:

    A very realistic approach to the topic His down to earth acknowledgement of some of the difficulties one faces as we try to read, study and contemplate using methods from centuries ago.His recognition of the value offered by the desert mystics was reassuring.I found the book to be encouraging at my novice level in these pursuits.


  10. says:

    Lectio divina is a technique of prayer and a guide to living It is a means of descending to the level of the heart and of finding God vi My ambition is to describe lectio divina in such detail that those living outside monasteries and not in direct contact with the lived experience of monks and nuns can profit from their tradition in the living of the Gospel viii
