    Praying The Psalms

    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.

    In this thoroughly revised edition of a classic in spirituality, Walter Brueggemann guides the reader into a thoughtful and moving encounter with the Psalms. This new edition includes a revised text, new notes, and new bibliography.The movement and meeting of God with us is indeed a speech-event in which new humanness is evoked among us.

    "Being attentive to language means cultivating the candid imagination to bring our own experience to the Psalms and permitting it to be disciplined by the speech of the Psalms. And, conversely, it means letting the Psalms address us and having that language reshape our sensitivities and fill our minds with new pictures and images that may redirect our lives." - from Chapter 3
