Reviews

I often shake my head in wonder and appreciation for how *The Way of Scripture** lead me deeper into the mystery of the Word addressing us in scripture. I'd never had such a clear or expectant way of encountering Jesus behind and within the words of the Bible. *Lectio divina** has opened me to the penetrating presence of the Spirit inhabiting the text of scripture. My Bible will never be the same!
