Connected: You and God in the Psalms

  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 208

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Sometimes it’s hard for people to reconcile their lives in this chaotic, energized, nonsensical world with their faith in God. They want to know what’s really true, what they can count on, and on what they can build their futures. They want their lives to matter. And yet, to them the Bible often seems to be merely an ancient book about dead people who had no idea of the stresses and fears and challenges of living today.

This straightforward, real-world devotional guide is designed to help people of all ages connect powerfully with the God of the Bible as revealed in the Psalms—the Bible’s songbook. Within the exquisitely emotional lyrics in these songs, young readers will find all the feelings, struggles, and fears they face each day. And they’ll find the spiritual resources to help them thrive.

Using 90 selected passages from the Psalms, Peter Wallace has put together a stimulating new devotional full of fresh ideas for finding ways to connect with God, with one another, and with the world at large. As a result, readers will gain encouragement and strength to face their uncertain world with the wisdom and love of the God who so deeply loves them.

Peter Wallace is a beautiful thinker and a deep, humane soul; this book distills that beauty and reveals that depth. We could ask for no better guide to the comfort, the wisdom--and the poetry--that the Psalms hold for us searchers.

—Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

Peter Wallace understands the power of the psalms, and the need to engage them—all of them: praise and lament and confusion alike. Through the use of his own experience—his own inner life—he opens up each of the psalms for us so that we can see them anew, while in his concluding prayers for each section, he acknowledges the difficulty of many of these texts, the trials in many of our lives—and the ongoing goodness of God.

—Greg Garrett, author of Crossing Myself

The vice president of production for Altanta-based Alliance for Christian Media, he is the author of seven devotional books, and winner of the 2005 Polly Bond Award of Excellence for Books.

The Emergent Psalter

  • Author: Isaac Everett
  • Publisher: Church Publishing

  • Pages: 288

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Many alternative and emerging church communities have begun exploring ancient music and liturgical traditions despite a lack of high-quality, published liturgical music which does not require (or even desire) an organ and a four-part choir. The Emergent Psalter serves to provide that resource. Featuring music written for two emerging communities, this book is an excellent resource for anyone producing an alternative worship service or thinking of starting one.

Isaac Everett has served as artist-in-residence at the Church of the Epiphany in New York, a company member of Storahtelling, and the co-founder of Transmission, an underground church in New York City.

Meditations on the Psalms: For Every Day of the Year

  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 272

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

“I hope that the ancient texts upon which these reflections are based will come alive for you in a new way,” writes Barbara Crafton in Meditations on the Book of Psalms. The Psalms, written by ordinary people, are filled with all the same emotions and issues that challenge, comfort, and confound us today. Their complaints, joys, celebrations, envy, doubting, fear, and hope are ours as well. In this book of meditations for each day of the year, best-selling author Barbara Crafton combines reflection on these ancient texts with contemporary stories to help us explore the spiritual nature of our lives.

From the desire to start anew in January, to time management and remembering to lighten up in December, Crafton’s meditations are the perfect daily companion for anyone who finds nourishment in biblically based devotional reading.

Crafton writes with a combination of toughness and compassion; her stories are funny and tragic, and her observations about everyday life are well stated.

Library Journal

Crafton has a good eye for mystical moments and for the ways we can see God’s presence in the midst of everyday life.

The “difficult psalms” which amount to more than a third of the Psalter, shock us with their cries of pain, anger, and alienation. They call on God for help in moving from suffering and grief to trust and mercy. Lyn Fraser, following the lead of Old Testament theologian Walter Brueggemann, shows how to integrate these “psalms of disorientation” in Sunday morning worship, pastoral care, and any situation of extreme need.

Lyn Fraser is the author of Water from the Rock, Finding Grace in Time of Grief. A volunteer hospice chaplain, she facilitates bereavement support groups, teaches creative writing to incarcerated youth, and has helped teen volunteers assist hospice patients record their life stories.
