Great Bible study, but not the lectio divina I learned
Reviewed in the United States on February 9, 2021
I was introduced to Lectio Divina a few years ago, and intermittently use a very simple version to spend time with God’s word. I love this approach, which is so simple a book is superfluous. Recently I offered to start a group at my church to introduce this practice, and since this book said it was for groups to use lectio, I thought it would be helpful. I will use it for Bible study but it is not what I understand lectio to be. Lots of study, lots of questions to answer—which is great, but not the simple listening response to God’s word.
