Reclaiming the Lost Art of Biblical Meditation is a helpful resource that guides readers into allowing the word of God to have its proper place in our lives. Morgan helpfully provides readers a biblical understanding of meditation which is in stark contrast to eastern and New Age meditation practices that focus on emptying one’s mind. Rather than having an empty head we are to have a head that stores up God’s word to think it through and apply it to our life.
In nine chapters Morgan addresses the importance of biblical meditation and provides practical steps to put this spiritual discipline into practice. Throughout the book there are quick tips which provide simple ideas that help make biblical meditation something that any reader can easily implement in their day-to-day life. In chapters 2 through 8 Morgan helps readers understand how to think about Scripture as they meditate on it as well as providing techniques that can be used. The final chapter addresses Bible memorization which is really foundational to meditation as one cannot meditate on Scripture that has not be stored in memory.
Given the lack of priority professing Christians place on the Bible Morgan’s book is both timely and valuable. It’s written at a level where most readers will find it accessible and understandable.
