I am THRILLED to announce that my new book, Love Your Bible: Finding Your Way to the Presence of God with a 12th Century Monk is now available!
Love Your Bible introduces 21st century readers to classic lectio divina–an approach to Scripture that has shaped the lives of disciples for well over a thousand years.
Love Your Bible invites you to a life-giving engagement with Scripture–not dry academic study, not superficial devotional reading.
- If you love classic spiritual disciplines…
- If you need an approach to the Bible that draws you to new life in the presence of God…
- …then you really should try classic lectio divina–and it is totally unlike the superficial version so commonly taught in the churches today.
You’ll find it in paperback on Amazon with 16 reviews as of today (Average 4.8 stars!) for $5.95.
Or you can find the eBook version right here for FREE!
To be a competent, confident follower of Jesus, you need more than a few Bible basics. You need Scripture to lead you to growth and new life, consistently, for a lifetime. Lectio divina, the ancient Christian practice of moving through the Bible into the presence of God, will give you exactly that.
Love Your Bible brings you a faithful modern version of the practice as taught by the 12th century monk Guigo II—so you can finally Love Your Bible.
Dr Hansen invites readers to dig deeply into scripture, a small bite at a time, patiently mining the depths to uncover the very presence of God in the text. His little book cracks open the ancient monastic discipline of lectio divina, and will inspire both the novice and long-time practitioner with a variety of images and practical helps for engaging this prayerful practice of scripture study.”

My Launch Team members have been especially excited to use Love Your Bible in small groups. Very soon I’ll be offering a free small group leader’s guide to make that really easy. There will be plans included to explore lectio divina in one session or to take it step by step over the course of six group meetings. (It will come to all subscribers when it is ready, so be sure to sign up to get your copy right away.)
I’m offering Love Your Bible FREE to YOU, O reader of my blog!
