"Communion with God increases dramatically as we grow in knowledge of God's Word. For most people the problem is simply getting started: determining where to begin. A most ancient and venerable practice is lectio divina, scripture reading that is meditation and contemplation but also application. Sacred Reading is an uncommonly useful tool in really getting into scripture in just this way." --Rev. Michael White and Tom Corcoran, Authors of Rebuilt
"In just six simple steps, Sacred Reading opens our minds and hearts to scripture in refreshing and profound ways. The daily meditations are clear and concise and yet filled with wisdom and promise. Reading scripture daily is good; reading scripture daily with Sacred Reading as your guide is awesome." --Marge Fenelon, Author of Imitating Mary
