• Seeking God in Scripture

When the Spirit of Truth comes, he will lead you to the complete truth... (John 16:13)

At the heart of Seeking God in Scripture is the conviction that only through deep prayer, reflection and meditation do people of faith come to know God and God's purposes for us.  There is also an understanding that the Scriptures are themselves the sources of discipleship and prayer; and that only by sustained reflection on their teachings do we become aware of the Spirits leading us to complete truth, about God, about the Christ, about the Spirit, about ourselves within the community of believers.

The book's origins are the Abbot's teaching to the novices at Tarrawarra Abbey in Victoria.  He shares his insights, experiences and tradition; all based on and sustained by the ancient Rule of St Benedict, lived and practised by monks for centuries.

But the book is not only for those in monastic vows but for all who long to live spiritual lives more richly, to learn the art and skills of meditation, especially within the discipline known as Lectio Divina.

The author's purpose is to offer to the general Christian reader some basic ideas about Lectio Divina: how we may understand it better, how it may be practised in a variety of ways, how the Scripture itself informs both content and process.  Above all, to remind us that Lectio Divina is more to do with listening than reading; and listening as our way of entering the very Presence of God.
