Praying The Psalms
Full Product Description
Sometimes it seems that the Psalms are full of images that are spiritually deep and profoundly helpful in meeting with God... but are hard to understand. Praying the Psalms acts as a way into the getting the most out of the language and Jewish character of this key book of communication between the world and God.
The author reveals how the Psalms re-orientate the soul to a way to view life in as a response to God, leading to a helpful understanding of the Christian and Jewish experiences of the human and divine, and the difference between the two faiths with regard to concepts such as vengeance and living in the Kingdom of God.
Praying The Psalms by Walter Brueggemann was published by Paternoster Press in January 2007 and is our 17234th best seller. The ISBN for Praying The Psalms is 9781842275528.
