From Whom No Secrets are Hid

Full Product Description

From No Secrets Are Hid is Walter Brueggemann's introduction the Psalms.

Scholarly and approachable, engaging and lively this potent combination helps you think through what the Psalms are and how they should be used holistically in worshipping communities.

The Psalms express the most elemental human emotions, representing situations in which people are most vulnerable, ecstatic, or driven to the extremities of life and faith.

Many people may be familiar with a few Psalms, or sing them as part of worship. Here highly respected author Walter Brueggemann offers readers an additional use for the Psalms: as scripted prayers we perform to help us reveal ourselves to God.

Brueggemann explores the rich historical, literary, theological, and spiritual content of the Psalms while focusing on various themes such as praise, lament, violence, and wisdom. He skillfully describes Israel's expression of faith as sung through the Psalms, situates the Psalmic liturgical tradition in its ancient context, and encourages contemporary readers to continue to perform them as part of their own worship experiences.

The author's famous essay: 'The Psalms and the Life of Faith: A suggested Typology of Function' is helpfully reproduced in an appendix.

Brueggemann's masterful take on the Psalms as prayers will help readers to unveil their hopes and fears before God and, in turn, feel God's grace unveiled to them.
