Details

Examines themes from Scripture relating to the spiritual life: prayer, including the example of Mary and the priestly prayer of Jesus; the mystery of human suffering; and prayer with the Holy Spirit. There is also a helpful introduction to Lectio Divina, with guidelines for practising it indivdually or in a group. All this is viewed 'through Carmelite eyes'; not just through those of the author, but primarily those of five major Carmelite saints - Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Therese of Lisieux, Elizabeth of the Trinity and Edith Stein - whose lives and writings contain valuable insights which can enhance our understanding of Scripture. This book helps us to engage with the Bible in a profound and meaningful way: to enter into the mystery of God, as revealed in his word, and to translate it into our lives, with the example of the Carmelite saints and under the action of the Holy Spirit.
