* Deepen your experience with Scripture
* Discover the power of God’s Word
* Is the Bible speaking to you?
* Learning to listen to Scripture
* Listen to what God’s Word is saying to you

People talk about the power of the Bible, but sometimes Scripture just looks like normal words. However, inside these thin, innocent-looking pages is the divine revelation of a God who wants you to hear him. Enjoy the Silence is about the spiritual discipline of Lectio Divina. This ancient practice can help you develop an awareness of God’s presence and power found in the Bible. The book’s simple exercises take you through the process of reading Scripture, meditating on Scripture, listening to God through Scripture, and responding to Scripture. If you feel like you’ve been reading the Bible in the shallow end, it’s time to start scaling the cliffs and get ready to plunge headlong into the deep experience of God’s Word.
