A Table before me: The Meditating Christian reveals God as the Living God who has spoken to His people definitively through Jesus Christ and who continues to speak daily through His Word. God prepares a table before us each day, where He sits with us and feeds us His Word. The secret of meditation is that we do not have to force our entry into God's Word. God delights to speak to all who will listen. He only requires that we listen, by opening ourselves to Him as He speaks, by focusing on the words that we read, and by allowing His Spirit to plant those words in our innermost being, just as a farmer plants seeds in the springtime. The result will be a transformed prayer life, deeper communion with God and a new joy in participating in God's redeeming work throughout the world. The Korean edition of this book is a best seller in Korea, and translation has begun on the Chinese edition. David and Ellen Ross are Presbyterians who have served as missionaries to the Korean people for over forty-five years. Co-founders of Youth With A Mission Korea, and The Antioch Institute for International Ministries, their present ministry includes teaching and writing, providing pastoral care for long-term, cross-cultural missionaries, and ministry to North Korea. David is the author of two books on North Korea as well as numerous Bible study manuals.
