We live in a fast-paced world, and our minds are working in overdrive. Mindfulness promises a method of tuning out the voices for a few minutes to live in the moment. Biblical meditation offers something better: an opportunity to be transformed by God's voice of truth.

Psalm 1 says that the person who delights in God’s word and meditates on it day and night is like a “tree

I found this a very readable book that was so useful to me. I don't think there was much that was new to me but it was all said in a way that had an impact on me. I'm sure I'll come back to this book to re-read it in years to come. ...more

Deeper Still: Finding clear minds and full hearts through biblical meditation by Linda Allcock is a short, practical book with wisdom on how to spent time with God each day.

Deeper Still is divided in to three sections: Still Your Mind, Fill Your Heart and Feed Day and Night. The book is easy to read and think through the concepts that Allcock presents. However, she is English so I had to think about a few of the phrases she used and what they meant to me as an American. This wasn't really the b

In the world we live in, there are many competing voices trying to get hold of our attention. Linda Allock in her new book "Deeper Still" gives us a convincing portrait of what it means to keep our attention fixed on God. She shows us what Biblical meditation looks like (“talking with yourself in your heart”) and how it differs from its secular counterpart. I thought some aspects of the book were particularly helpful to me and a much-needed reminder to slow down while reading the Biblical text.

This lovely book by Linda Allcock teaches the practice of biblical meditation, taking the reader on a very practical journey through the what, why and how of making meditating on scripture part of your regular practice.

The author makes this sound both very enriching and very achievable, even if you're not a 12th-Century monk with no more pressing distractions. She first began to explore the practice, she explains, when she was going through post-natal depression after the birth of her third chil

What an incredibly helpful resource for those who want to keep the gospel on the forefront of their minds and the hope of Christ in their lips. In ‘Deeper Still: Finding clear minds and full hearts through biblical meditation,” Linda Allcock’s enjoyable writing style turns personal stories into metaphors weaving them carefully throughout. “Deeper Still” could be described as a parallel to Jen Wilkin’s “Women of the Word,” just homing in on biblical meditation.
“A large part of the reason why we a

We live in a busy world. Even as technology has made our lives more productive, we’ve continued to push ourselves past normal limits in a way completely derogatory to our mental health. To push back against that, the Eastern concept of meditation began to take hold in the Western secular sphere. Christians have rightfully been cautious about these practices, but what’s often overlooked is the rich history the Church has with biblical meditation. Deeper Still by Linda Allcock taps into that tradi ...more

A short, refreshing book with ideas for the busy woman who wants to meditate on the Word more completely. The author teaches us why we need to meditate, but basically the book is full of practical aspects and strategies to meditate.

What I enjoyed most about this book is how practical it is, complete with questions to guide, examples of using those questions with two passages, and ideas to ponder so that you can set your mind on God, His son's redemptive plan, and the impact the Holy Spirit has

Life is busy. We spend our days writing and reading emails, working for an employer or at home, looking after the kids, trying to do normal life, admin, etc. So it is common for many of us to sit in front of our Bibles and be distracted, to have our attention pulled away or simply to not engage as well as we should. Linda has written this helpful book which is a call for Christians to meditate on God’s Word. Meditation can be viewed with skepticism by some because of how the word if used in othe ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It’s simple and practical and not overwhelming. I feel like I’m in a season of life where my quiet time and personal bible study isn’t very picturesque but this book has helped me make even the smallest moments in the word more meaningful and fruitful.

Definitely recommend. The beginning was slow- but after getting to the meat of the book I loved it. She has some really helpful ideas on how to make biblical mediation part of your daily life. She inspired me in several ways that will alter how I "meditate" from now on. And she always brought it back to the gospel ...more
