“Reclaiming the Lost Art of Biblical Meditation: Find True Peace in Jesus” is an attractive, compact little book with a big title that makes a big promise. Written by Robert J. Morgan and published by Thomas Nelson in the spring of 2017, this book encourages (and guides) readers to find “the peace of meditation in a biblically sound way.” Although not large in size, the content is insightful and inspiring, and contains a vast amount of practical information to help readers incorporate biblical meditation into their lives each and every day.
“Biblical Meditation” is divided into 9 chapters, with additional features at the back including a 10-day meditation guide, suggested Scripture to begin meditating on, and more. Perhaps my favorite part of the book are the “Quick Tip” pages that are sprinkled generously throughout the book, and contain wonderful suggestions such as this one:
“Write your own devotional book. Take a verse every day, meditate on it, and write a paragraph about its meaning to you. Consider posting your meditation, when appropriate, on social media.”
Isn’t that a great idea? It’s so simple, yet I certainly wouldn’t have thought of it on my own! Or what about this simple yet profound idea:
“Many of our great hymns and praise songs are the products of someone who was meditating on a truth or verse of Scripture. Take a passage and convert it into your own song, poem, or prayer.”
In the end, I highly recommend “Reclaiming the Lost Art of Biblical Meditation: Find True Peace in Jesus” for anyone, young or old, who wants to incorporate the power of God’s own words into their lives in a meaningful, impacting, long-lasting way. Although this process is still very much a work-in-progress for me, this volume is an amazing resource – and one that I am certain to come back to time and time again.
