Herbert O'Driscoll The Psalms


The psalms are among the most sublime poetry in the world, offering us inexhaustible wells of meaning. Herbert O'Driscoll adeptly dips into their sacred depths and draws up sparkling insights to refresh the soul. Our contemporary spirits can feel at home in the world of psalms. All of human experience is there – joy and sadness, love and anger, trust and despair. The gift of the psalms lies in their challenge to us; they invite us into dialogue with them and with the God who inspired them. The psalms guide us to express our deepest feelings to God, and their response floods the soul with assurance. Justice is done. Healing takes place. Grace is given. Praise for God with Us: The Companionship of Jesus in the Challenges of Life : "God with Us, approached in a spirit of openness and honesty, can be transforming. Its thought is deep but its language is accessible – written with sensitivity and spirituality." - Montreal Anglican

Daniel H. Fletcher Psalms of Christ


The book of Psalms is a treasure trove of teaching about Jesus Christ. While the church has traditionally recognized only about fifteen psalms as «messianic,» anticipating God's promised Messiah, the issue is how Christians should understand the other 135 psalms of the Hebrew Psalter. Psalms of Christ applies the New Testament conviction that the whole book of Psalms speaks prophetically about Christ to select «non-messianic» psalms. Following the New Testament as the guide for how to read the Old in light of the gospel, Psalms of Christ proposes fresh readings of so-called non-messianic psalms by illustrating their christological character, and exploring how they testify to the gospel by evoking Jesus's person, purpose, and passion.

Walter Brueggemann Praying the Psalms, Second Edition


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

Joy Ladin Psalms


These psalms grow out of a decades-long fascination with the biblical psalms, particularly the Davidic psalms, which portray the tempestuous, sometimes awful intimacy of the Divine-human relationship. In the lightning-shot Psalm-space where Divine meets human, time shatters, splits, leaps like a river, and so does the soul of the speaker, now hunting God, now hunted, now languishing in despair, now reclining in quiet triumph against the pillars of Heavens. These contemporary psalms attempt to create a corollary to that biblical psalm space, a space narrowed to a single room in which God and the speaker have no choice but to face and struggle toward one another through the whirlwind of pain and love.

Kent Gramm Psalms for the Poor


Psalms for the Poor talk back to the blunt and beautiful phrases of the King James Bible. Sometimes personal, sometimes political, the original Psalms complain, question, curse, and adore: «Why do the wicked prosper?» «When I consider the moon and the stars,» «My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?» «The Lord is my shepherd,» «But I am poor and needy.» Luther's last words were, «We are beggars.» These poems are for the world's poor, and for the pauper in each of us.

Dr. Henry M. Morris Treasures in the Psalms


A book from “the Father of the Modern Creationism Movement,” this marvelous look at the author’s favorite book of the Bible gives the reader insights not commonly taught in the Church today. This devotional, focusing on the spiritual, physical, and scientific dimensions of the Psalms, starts with the conviction that the Bible is a supernaturally-transmitted collection of the books, with Psalms leading the parade of the world’s greatest literature. From the book’s definite nod to scientific concepts, to the groanings of King David, Treasures in the Psalms promises to be a gift beyond measure.

Peter C. W. Ho The Design of the Psalter


Good poetry is like a good painting: the more you linger over it, the more it reveals. It is a deep well that never runs dry. And that is why the Psalter, like a good painting, keeps giving. In the last four decades, Psalms scholarship has found remarkable fruitfulness in reading the Psalter as a book–that is, in reading the Psalms as a unified composition with a metanarrative across its 150 poems. Pivotal questions associated with this approach really boil down to two questions–how and why? How are individual psalms sequenced, if at all, and what is the design logic behind that macrostructure? This volume seeks to answer those questions. In essence, the Psalter unfurls the story of the Davidic covenant. While interest in the editing of the Psalter remains high in recent Psalms scholarship, this interest has not led to clear consensus. The specific and timely contribution of this volume is twofold. First, it consolidates the results of studies on groups of psalms. Second, it integrates poetic and thematic approaches that are typically separated in Psalms scholarship. Readers will find results of this study surprising and their implications sobering.

St. Augustine of Hippo The Expositions On The Psalms

Группа авторов The Words of Her Mouth


Ten women poets bring the ancient collection of psalms into modern context: seeking justice and celebrating beauty, longing for grace and proclaiming love. «The Words of Her Mouth: Psalms for the Struggle» is a balm in these days of spiritual strife and political struggle.
"The Psalms are testimonies from the ancient faithful and speak to us across time and beyond time. Yet they also remain firmly in their own context, naming the particular struggles of a community and its ancestors, its losses and battles and conflicts with God. As I composed and complained in the margins of my Bible, I wondered what women writers might have to say in conversation with the psalms in this season when progressive people of faith lament child separation and climate change and proclaim #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter. I invited nine women whose faith and writing I value to join me in discovering what the psalms say to us and what psalms are inside us. – Martha Spong, from the Forward of «The Words of Her Mouth»
