Psalter Reclaimed, The: Praying and Praising with the Psalms
1 in stock
Though frequently used in times of crisis or pain, the book of Psalms is often misread or misunderstood, seeming like a disorganised jumble of prayer, praise and lament. To help readers get more out of the Psalms, renowned Old Testament scholar Gordon Wenham highlights its foundational place for all Christian worship and spiritual formation.
This compilation of eight lectures delivered between 1997 and 2010 teaches the practices of singing, reading and praying the Psalms, paying special attention to the Psalter's canonical structure, messianic focus and ethical goal.
"It is hard to imagine a better introduction to the book of Psalms, whether for pastors, seminary students, or general readers... The Psalter Reclaimed is engagingly written, well informed, practical, and genuinely inspiring."?
- Gordon P. Hugenberger, Senior Minister, Park Street Church, Boston
