For nearly three thousand years, men and women from diverse lands and cultures have been lifting their hearts to God by praying and singing the psalms. This illuminating Bible study shows us why these beautiful and timeless songs have such universal appeal. As we learn how to make the words of the ancient psalmists our own, the psalms become our gateway to deeper prayer. Each of the six sessions features
• the Scripture text to be studied and insightful commentary;
• questions for reflection, discussion, and personal application;
• "In the Spotlight" sections that offer wisdom from the saints, personal testimony, and fascinating historical background.
Praise for The Psalms
"To pray this book is to stand with God's people from three millennia, to share their words, and to find our shared life. Jeanne Kun has opened a doorway to the beautiful communion of saints. The Psalter itself becomes a temple for us, a meeting place for our sacrifice of praise." —Mike Aquilina, author and EWTN host
"Jeanne Kun has a love affair with the psalms and wants to share it with everyone. It is really a love affair with God using his own word. This is a reverent bible study, and not lightweight. The reader receives not only a way of using the psalms in prayer but a readable introduction to the history of the composition and development of this biblical book." —Abbot Jerome Kodell, OSB, Subiaco Abbey, Arkansas, and cofounder of the Little Rock Scripture Study program
