About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The short readings (daily?) are focused on Scripture using a unique yet historical process for devotional readings.
The author wisely has you start the process with silence before multiple reflective readings using the Lectio Divina (Sacred Reading) method "before" you read the author's reflections on the same Scripture.
In this four step sacred reading process focused on a Bible passage, you slowly read the passage, contemplate (discursive meditation), pray/respond as you are led, and then rest in God's peace.
I have found this book's unique process highly effective for devotional reading, almost like having a conversation to compare insights at the end.
The readings are arranged topically into chapters with over-arching themes.
At the end of each chapter there is also a poetic reflection to integrate the shorter readings.

I think this is a great second half of life book as it calls forth all the possibility of our true selves.
