A contemplative reading of the Gospel.

About this Book:

The Scriptures are our daily bread; broken and shared, they nourish our faith-life and enliven our souls. The ancient tradition of lectio divina, or "sacred reading," practiced by individuals and groups today, is once more anchoring the Church to the Word and enriching personal spirituality.

The way to read Scripture that is presented in this book is rooted in the ecclesial experience that does not separate reason from faith or the intellect from the heart. It proposes a prayerful listening to the word, and is moved by the invocation of the Spirit. This book is not an exhaustive commentary. It limits itself to offering a few notes for lectio divina, appropriate for personal use or in Bible study groups. The aim of this book is to soar on eagle's wings toward the contemplation of the Word made flesh-but beginning with the flesh, meaning the concrete structure of the text.

Features & Benefits:

  • Perfect for use in parish groups, bible study groups, and individual reflection
  • Lectio Divina method encourages readers to apply the Word to their lives

What Are People Saying about this Title?

"Sr. Elena Bosetti offers us a fresh and refreshing reading of the Fourth Gospel... Her book provides us with a way to read the Gospel that is exegetically sound and spiritually nourishing. This small volume will enable its readers to develop a truly biblical spirituality."
Frank J. Matera, Professor of New Testament, The Catholic University of America

"The recent Synod on the Word of God insisted on the reading and praying of the Holy Scriptures. Study leads to prayer. An old Jewish tradition considers the study of Scripture as the 'sanctification of the name of God,' and the Church continues this tradition in lectio divina..."
Frédéric Manns, OFM, Professor of New Testament and Ancient Jewish Literature, Studium Biblicum of Jerusalem

"Sister Elena Bosetti's work is the fruit of both fine scholarship and a living relationship with the Word himself, Jesus Christ. What a marvelous combination!"
Paul Helfrich, BH, Catholic Chaplain, Boston University
