Livia, the emperor's wife, wants to share. She told me how just yesterday she strolled through her husband’s fig orchard stoically lacing the fruit with poison, plotting Augustus’ untimely death. Ah, what a conversation! What lessons to learn about intrigue, sorrow, life’s inevitable termination.
Meditations from the Classics swings mindfulness’s door open to a unique view of life’s predicaments. Instead of therapy in a stuffy doctor’s office, I invite you to take a front row seat in a theater of ancient wizardry.
This is one of the 366 glimpses back in time that Meditations from the Classics presents to those searching for daily inspiration. Each page begins with a key word, a pulsing theme, that resonates in a stressful world. This daily oasis offers a mindfulness that reassures and comforts. Each meditation closes with a timely link to the Bible, and a relevant verse that will simmer throughout the work day.
Let me share the ancient world with you for less than a dime a day for a full year.

"Dr. Denny recounts stories from the ancient past which need to be retold in our time. The stories are written in a fresh and compelling manner and the biblical applications make them useful for personal inspiration or devotion and, for preachers, practical for sermon illusions."
"Each of the meditations contained in this book begins with a carefully selected passage from the ancient classical writers. These stories blend well with the author's musings and the scripture selections that accompany them. The closing words are sure to uplift the reader."
"Anxiety taints every corner of people's lives today. It does not get any better than turning to the classical writers of the past to find genuine peace and contentment. David R.Denny has hit a home run with this devotional book that links the lives of ancient people with the Light of the Bible."
