Spiritual Balance in a Digital World
The fact that I am on the computer a great deal of the time led me to request this book. Initially I was drawn into the book, then I became frustrated as I moved along. I think it was partly the fact that the book was written more from a Lectio Divina perspective.
By this I mean, there were 4 main sections ~
Lectio - meaning to read
Meditatio - meaning to meditate
Oratio - meaning to pray
Contemplatio - meaning to contemplate.
What was really nice in the book was the effort taken to give practical examples, and about 3-4 pages at the end of each chapter giving a game plan to attempt to put these practices into daily use. This is a book I may return to in a different season of life, and my hope is that it will speak to me more at that time, then it is now.
Overall, though, this is a very good book, informative, easy to read, and practical.
I received this book from http://tyndaleblognetwork.com in exchange for an honest review.
