by Stephen J. Binz




Ancient Future Bible Study incorporates contemporary study of the Bible with an experience of the church's most ancient way of reading Scripture, lectio divina. This time honored practice consists of five basic movements: biblical study (lectio), reflection (meditatio), prayer (oratio), discernment (contemplatio), and contemplative action (operatio). In six clearly written volumes, bestselling author Stephen Binz helps readers study the Bible in a way that leads to spiritual transformation and brings them closer to God. Binz leads readers in a vivid study of key biblical characters, including Abraham, Paul, Peter, David, the women of the Torah, and the women of the Gospels. He shows all Christians who desire to have a transforming experience with the inspired Word of God how studying Scripture through lectio divina can enrich their discipleship. This ecumenical Bible study, designed for use by individuals or groups, includes questions for personal reflection and suggested action. Each volume includes leader's notes for guiding a study over the course of six sessions.

Hi_Jacker
Your commentary on Paul opened a window to understanding and subsequent fascination and inspiration from the first Christian writer of Christ's Good News. Paul was difficult for me to follow, aside from the obvious. Your insights have opened for me a much deeper appreciation of Paul's Faith in the Faith of Christ. Fantastic!

I cannot recommend this enough. As a theologian and teacher for adults this is one of the best bible studies for more advanced students of the bible. It may be a bit intimidating for new believers.

Reading this for Lenten reflection. The author has given a nice framework for better understanding and appreciating the conversion and message from Saint Paul.
