  1. A Course In Miracles. It's not for everyone, but if you are someone who the Course speaks to, it is outstanding. It is not a book you sit down and read. It is like a holy scripture that you study. I have been studying it now for almost 30 years.

  2. I have engaged in Lectio divina for 55 years. I always have a spiritual book going. I have learned so much and it is one of my most favorite times of the day. I find it relaxing, inspiring, and illuminating. One of my favorite spiritual teachers is Osho and there are tons of books now which are transcriptions of his talks. I always learn something from his talks.

  3. Reading high quality spiritual materials and reflecting on the ideas articulated there is one of the foundational spiritual practices for people who are visual learners. People with different learning styles might not be as attracted to this practice. Perhaps listening to audio books or sermon podcasts would be a similar optional way of engaging in Lectio divina
