David Foster is a Benedictine Monk of Downside Abbey and chaplain to Downside School. He has always been concerned to bring the riches of the monastic tradition to lay people as they struggle to live the Christian life in the modern world. Lectio Divina or the art of spiritual reading is an art which is all but lost outside monastic communities. But following St Benedict's opening command in his Rule to 'listen', attending to the word of God through the printed text is an art which needs to be rediscovered in a world in which we are surrounded by a cacophony of sound and noise. David Foster has written a masterly guide to this art.

Mentioned title in The Tablet, 2008. 'David Foster's book is a welcome aid in praying with scripture. Foster's book on Lectio Divina or 'godly reading' offers the reader a way of coming to terms with reading and praying the Bible. It is a handbook that offers a practical guide for grounding one's life on the Bible....Foster's gradual introduction to reading scriptuer is ideal for the beginner. The book should prove useful to seminarians and students of theology. Their inital encounter with scripture in the breviary and in study can be quite overwhelming. This book ought to allow one to appreciate and to be pastorally challenged by the Word of God. Finally, pastors may find this book useful as a basic text for instructing people on reading scripture.' The Furrow, Martin Whelan, October 2006 Quotes from author about title, in The Tablet, 18 Feb 2006--Sanford Lakoff "The American Spectator "
