Christians are increasingly looking for more depth and intimacy with God in their devotional lives. But devotional spirituality is like a delicate grapevine that flourishes only when planted in the right soil and carefully cultivated in a good climate. Unless it is nurtured, it will wither from neglect and fail to bear fruit. Here is help for readers looking to cultivate a deeper devotional life.
The Psalms: A Journal guides readers through three months of "lectio divina," the ancient discipline of sacred contemplative reading using ninety texts from the Psalms that are particularly well-suited to this discipline. These texts- translated from the original language by Dr. Kenneth Boa-have been arranged in biblical sequence. Boa walks readers through a daily four-part sequence of reading, meditation, prayer, and contemplation, and invites readers to engage personally with the text and to record their thoughts and prayers in the process. This journaling component will enhance interaction with each of the readings, and yield a valuable record of a reader's reflections and prayers during these months.
