Faith shaped reading

“Faith-shaped reading of the Gospels is not the same as ‘consumerist’ reading.  In the latter we gobble up a book, put it away, and find another to gobble away.  In a faith-based reading, we read and listen and pause and pray and ponder and relish and chew and digest and wonder and pray some more….  [Faith-shaped] reading wants not only to learn about Jesus but also to meditate on him so much that he enters into the soul and sinews of who we are and how we live.” (p 197}
