Psalms for Praying : An Invitation to Wholeness Paperback
by Nan Merrill
Every commentary on the "Book of Psalms" has had to face the issue that many of these prayers commemorate and celebrate wrath and vengeance.
What is needed is not ingenious exegetical rationalization of ancient texts, but the kind of transformation into a work of piety and art that is provided here.
Addressed are the needs of a world seeking to counter individual and societal injustices by a global peace born of personal peace through prayer and practice.
In short, here is the "Book of Psalms" recast in the light of the continuing revelation and evolution of the authentic religious spirit of the scriptures.
