Item Description...
THE BIBLE AS PRAYER is an anthology of short phrases and passages from the Bible designed specifically as an aid to prayer. It is a resource to keep at hand in pocket or briefcase, enabling the reader to engage quickly with the business of praying.As early as the third century, monks would take short phrases from the Scriptures and meditate on them in their hearts or on their lips. Out of this developed the Jesus Prayer in the East and lectio divina in the west. This book aims to return to the source, drawing both traditions together and helping busy people in the 21st century to rediscover a simple form of meditation.Every page of this unique book has some words to help the reader open heart and mind to the One who prays in us.

Publishers Description
This book is an aid to prayer in a busy, modern life using Lectio divina. Readers are invited to take small extracts from the Bible and pray with them in a simple, contemplative way.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Offers up both useful phrases and history.  Oct 6, 2007
THE BIBLE AS PRAYER is a recommended pick for Christian libraries, offering up an anthology of short phrases and passage from the Bible designed specifically to aid in prayer. From early monk phrases taken from Scriptures for meditation purposes to the development of the Jesus Prayer in the East, THE BIBLE AS PRAYER: A HANDBOOK FOR LECTIO DIVINA offers up both useful phrases and history.
A beautiful and handy little volume  Aug 25, 2007
First of all, the buyer should understand right away what this book is and is not. It is a excellently chosen series of selections from the scriptures, arranged in the proper order (that is to say, beginning with Genesis and ending with Revelation) which serve as key thoughts to reflect upon in lectio divina, meditation or prayer. It is not in any way a study Bible, it's purpose being for devotion and prayer rather than study per se. I think the author, who is also an extremely distinguished concert pianist, shows great care in chosing those quotations, kernels, nuggets of scripture which provide an adequate "hook" for the mind and soul to catch upon.
I can see how handy this would be if I were going on a trip and wanted to have a good amount of the Word at hand without carrying an entire Bible with me. The author provides an interesting and informative essay at the top of the book, explaining his intent. Mr Hough is a Roman Catholic, and I am so glad that he includes a generous selection of quotations from the Apocrypha.
I for one am going to find it quite useful. It is also nicely printed on beautiful quality, glossy paper. A lovely little gem of a book.
