Getting to Know the Psalms
Number of pages: 32
The Book of Psalms is perhaps one of the most familiar and favourite texts of the Old Testament canon. For many women and men, the words of the psalms resonate and evoke profound images and emotions.
Although the texts are familiar to our ears, the psalms’ deeper meaning can easily be overlooked. Theologian and scripture scholar Gerard McLarney offers us an insightful introduction to the psalms and invites us to consider how the words speak to our life experiences. This accessible guide is perfect for parish groups, catechists and new and returning religious educators.
Living with Christ introduces the Getting to Know series.
Each book comes with historical background on the scriptures and examines their themes and symbolism.
They are ideal for lectors, catechists and all those seeking a greater understanding of these key books of the Bible.
