Psalm Prayers

Author Stephen Cherry
Publisher Canterbury Press £12.99
Format pbk
ISBN 9781786222374

This profoundly thoughtful book brings to life the cry of the human heart, an invitation to the reader to develop his or her own relationship with the Psalms. The result of this invitation is an engagement with God born of desperate human need in all the complexities of human existence. We get a deep sense of the immediacy of each Psalm, of its being written by real people out of real experience. Each Psalm is accompanied by a personal prayer, a great resource for our own prayers. Additionally, there is a delightful pairing of the Psalms with Choral Evensong and the beautiful cadences of Anglican chant. To immerse oneself in Stephen Cherry’s rich outpouring of his love for the Psalms is a spiritual journey in itself.
