The author, a published poet, presents 32 selected passages from scripture and follows each with a poetic meditation that offers a perspective on the people and events of the passages that is not necessarily part of our normal reaction to these mostly familiar biblical accounts. A reflection question after each selection helps to personalize the reader's encounter with the scriptural passage. Part 1, Disciples, presents particular people from the Bible. Part 2, Encounters, deals more specifically with the person of Jesus, bringing events in the scriptures into our daily lives as Christians. The book is meant to open a door for readers to enter into their own meditation, and as such is not so much intended to be read as to be prayed. Walking Humbly is a book about our relationship with the Lord and is appropriate as an instigator of faith sharing, as an aid for individual prayer, as a starting point for meditation, and as a companion for those on retreat.
