Lectio Divina with John's Gospel
Silvester O'Flynn OFM Cap
176 Pages
ISBN: 9781856072656


Those encountering scripture study for the first time are drawn by the appeal of stories like the wedding at Cana or the encounter of Jesus with the woman at the well. Short phrases like “Come and see” or “Peace I leave you” or the great “I am” statements of Jesus resound in the memory. Silvester O’Flynn encourages the beginner to come with him to some of the deeper treasures of the gospel. He shows how our understanding of the text is enriched by paying attention to the context of the Jewish feasts mentioned. Lectio Divina is an ancient and revered approach to scripture. This book follows the process of Lectio Divina in three steps: an explanatory commentary on the text: connecting the text with questions of today; an example of how to pray out of the text. Come and See is a book that will be useful for personal study and prayer. It will also be appreciated by groups who gather together for prayer with scripture. By the same author: The Good News of Luke’s Year The Good News of Matthew’s Year The Good News of Mark’s Year Gather in My Name.

Silvester O’Flynn, Capuchin, is director of retreats at Ard Mhuire, Creeslough, Co Donegal.
