A Retreat with the Psalms
Resources for Personal and Communal Prayer
Tradition says the psalms are the prayerbook of the church; from laments to exultant praise, the psalms express our full range of emotion. Yet repetition and familiarity can dull us to the wonder truly present in tradition. This book brings the psalms to vivid new life. It explains the various types of psalms, as well as how to make them more meaningful to contemporary readers.
With its specific prayer suggestions, samples of psalms, and a prayer service for each genre, this book is appropriate for personal and group use for all denominations. It is particularly recommended for individual and group retreats, retreat directors, bible study groups, prayer groups, spiritual support groups, lectionary study groups, liturgy group members, and anyone who prays the psalms daily, especially in community.
