Abstract
Lectio Divina: Bridging the Gap between Preachers and Adolescents suggests that preachers employ the monastic practice of Lectio Divina (holy reading) with youth to engage them in the preaching event. In the first chapter the author explores contemporary adolescence. In the second chapter he explores the characteristics of adolescent spirituality. In chapter three he introduces the practice of Lectio Divina. Finally, in chapter four, the author describes a workshop he created and facilitated to help preachers learn how to use Lectio Divina with youth, enhance the preacher's preparation process, and the youths' experience of the preached Word.
