Digging Deeper: Psalms Resources
The Psalter is a book of prayers rather than a prayer book. Its words leap to the page from the heart of man, racked by pain, jubilant with joy, despairing, aspiring, questioning, worshiping, but never ceasing to reach for God.
The world changes, knowledge grows, but the heart of man remains as it has always been. That is why the Psalms becomes increasingly, as life goes on, the mirror and the language of experience, the book which speaks to us, and provides the words for the hours of contrition, of fear, of awe, defeat and victory.”
