Product Description

The goal of Christianity is communion with God, and prayer is the language of that communion. Prayer is the cornerstone of the Christian life. We deepen our relationship with God through conversing with Him, and we get access to the superabundant stream of divine love and vitality. However, for many people, prayer can feel like a burden rather than a pleasure, like a monologue rather than a discussion - and as a result, many people miss out on the joy that can only be discovered through prayer.

"When we pray, we talk to God; when we read Scripture, God speaks to us," St. Augustine observes. Learning the language of Christianity is the key to enhancing our prayer, and the most efficient approach to acquire the language of Christianity is an old technique called as Lectio Divina ("divine reading"). Dr. Tim Gray, a Catholic theologian and biblical scholar, leads the reader through the Bible and the wisdom of the saints to uncover the practical steps of this magnificent gift of our Tradition in this concise book. Learning the simple stages of Lectio Divina will offer you with a practical and efficient technique to improve your prayer life by utilising the power of God's Word.

In these pages, you will learn:
  • The Language of Christian Prayer.
  • How God speaks directly to each of us in His Word.
  • How to overcome the biggest obstacles to a regular and fruitful prayer life.
  • Why the four-fold method of Lectio Divina is like the four rungs of a ladder, which if ascended one rung at a time in the proper order, lead us directly into the heart of contemplative prayer.
  • Strategies for reading - and praying - the Bible fruitfully.
  • What Christian meditation is and how it differs from non-Christian approaches.
  • How everyone - not just saints and mystics - can truly practice contemplative prayer.
