John Skinner, author and translator of many texts of spirituality, invites the reader to peruse these varied writings using the immediately accessible style of reading known as lectio divina. This custom, traditionally favored by monks, works on the idea that inspired texts should be approached as a means for hearing God speaking through and within the text. By way of this prayerful, openhearted method, readers may glean personal insights that are uniquely relevant and meaningful to their lives.
Wisdom of the Cloister is both a resource for daily inspiration and an overview of the world of monasticism.
