A spiritual renaissance is taking place as believers rediscover the devotional disciplines that Christians have practiced for hundreds of years. In response, the Spiritual Formation Bible is designed for both head and heart. Instead of a cut-and-dried study approach, it relates the Bible text to the transforming practice of meeting God in the Created Order, in Everyday Life, in Prayer, Worship, Scripture, Service, and Community. This unique Bible offers an "Entry Point" meditation on every page to help readers reflect on the meaning of the text. Five different styles of "Entry Point" articles include:
-- 1. Lectio divina: readers make the Word of God a part of their lives by reading and meditating on the text, praying the Scripture back to God, and resting so God can speak.
-- 2. Ignatian: encourages the reader to allow his or her imagination to see, hear, taste, smell, and feel the story or text in a way that allows God to speak afresh.
-- 3. Franciscan: emphasizes the sacred in the ordinary and helps the reader encounter God through creative actions, such as writing or art as meditation.
-- 4. Fivefold Question: prompts the reader to ask five questions that will make the meaning of the text more personal.
-- 5. Quotations from respected Christians, old and new, offer perspective and encourage contemplation of the Scriptures.

The Spiritual Formation Bible features:
-- Easy-to-use side-margin format
-- 20 attractive tip-ins with Scripture and classic quotations in calligraphy
-- Text choices of either the NIV, today's most popular modern translation, or the NRSV,
-- featuring the Apocrypha and gender-inclusive language where applicable
-- Bookintroductions and special articles on spiritual formation

The Spiritual Formation Bible also includes a list of Scriptures suitable for lectio divina, a subject index of entry point passages and quotes, and other outstanding features. Together, they present a Bible of exceptional value to Christians from all denominations and every walk of life.
