Where does the millennial appeal of the psalms really lie? As prayers, they engage us by their intensity and emotional force... We sense a real voice, often a communal one, pleading or arguing with the divine, or just breathlessly admiring. We are taken by their rhythmical eloquence. God, the addressee, is always their magnetic center.

In Yearning for You, My God, Fr. Torrens helps us open our minds and hearts to 33 of the psalms, thoughtfully selected from each of the genres praise, thanksgiving, lament and more. His powerful reflections, accompanied by nine of Fr. John Griesbach s glorious, full-color paintings, invite us into the world of the psalmists and help us to raise our own prayer to God. 202067 James Torrens;, James Torrens SJ
