Weaving together biblical insights with contemporary Church teaching, pastoral wisdom, and the human sciences, it helps readers become more competent, comfortable, and confident in their ability to pray with, interpret, and apply the Bible.
A thorough exploration of the nature of community and interpersonal relationships as revealed in Sacred Scripture, Becoming Community guides readers in reflecting on particular passages from both the Old and New Testaments concerning the circumstances of personal, family, and community life.
It is particularly suited to engaged and married couples, members of ecclesial movements, lay and religious communities or organizations, and persons active in parish and family life.
“Anyone seeking an introduction to a prayerful way to meditate on Scripture (the ancient practice of lectio divina) need look no further. This book sets forth in simple language both a method for praying the Bible and an inspiring application of it to contemporary life. It is rare to find such a blend of solid biblical interpretation and pastoral sensitivity. Warmly recommended for individual or communal use!” (Ronald Witherup, S.S. , Author of Matthew: God With Us)
