A Practical Guide to a Spiritual Discipline



""Meditation transforms our perceptions of the world, the events of our lives, our own existence. -- Edmund P. Clowney Should Christians meditate? If so, how? In other generations the answers to these questions would have been taken for granted. Yet because of the influx of various Eastern religions with forms of meditation not based on biblical principles, Christians have shied away from this time-honored tradition. These forty daily studies are meant to assist you in searching out what the Scriptures say about meditation. You will not only learn about meditation; you will also learn how to meditate. These are meditations on meditation.
