Michel de Verteuil guides the reader through the process of lectio divina with each Sunday gospel for Year B - the Year of Mark.
Each gospel text is followed by a reflection on the content of the reading and a prayer which, it is hoped, will assist those who would like to move on to further prayer. The main purpose of the book is to help readers enter more fully into the richness of the gospel message and, in so doing, to associate themselves in prayer and reflection with the wider church community.
