Are you getting all you can from the Bible? God invites us not only to read the Bible, but to immerse ourselves in it. Then as we read, we find ourselves connecting with God so that we are changed into the kind of people we’ve always wanted to become. God does speak to us as we slow down and hear that still small voice.
Scripture meditation is an integral second step to reading the Bible. With a warm, personal style, respected author and speaker Jan Johnson:
See what happens when you deliberately set out to ponder and meditate on God’s words in Scripture. With Jan’s helpful exercises to help you ease into your new spiritual discipline, it’s more doable and practical than you think. Experience a new closeness to God by developing a new passion for the Word. Watch God use it to transform your soul.
The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of spiritual disciplines. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about faith, meditation, and Christlikeness.
With Savoring God’s Word, Jan Johnson shows us how meditation works and how it can be a major resource for renewal of the mind and soul. This is a discipline for which there is no substitute, and anyone can learn to do it becoming, as promised, ’like trees planted by rivers of water.’
—Dallas Willard, professor and former director, School of Philosophy, The University of Southern California
Jan explains what it means to be quiet in God’s presence, dwell in His Word, and listen to what he has to say. This book can so transform your relationship with God that you may never be the same again!

There’s no better place to hear God speak than through scriptural meditation, and there’s no better guide for the how-tos than Jan Johnson. Savoring God’s Word can direct you or your group toward heartfelt encounters with God.

Jan Johnson’s book Savoring God’s Word is a feast. Deep in its understanding of Scriptural meditation and simple in helping the reader to grasp the important practice, this book enables all to hear God’s word and for God to grow us into his image.
