Summary

Let the Psalms help you forge a deeper connection to the Divine.              
 Showing how the Psalms give profound and                 candid expression to both our highest aspirations and our                 deepest pain, the late, highly respected Cistercian Abbot M.                 Basil Pennington shares his reflections on some of the most                 beloved passages from the Bible’s most widely read book.                 In this companion volume to The Song of Songs: A Spiritual                 Commentary, Pennington is once again joined by Jewish artist                 Phillip Ratner, whose evocative works will lead you into more                 meaningful contemplation of the inner spirit of the Psalms.              
Pennington describes how the monastic                 tradition of regular reflection on the Psalms—a technique                 St. Benedict called the “work of God,” or Opus                 Dei—can help you transform your everyday life into a                 powerful life of prayer. Enriched by Jewish and Christian                 faith, the drawings and meditations speak to every person                 wanting both to connect with their most human longings and to                 forge a vital connection with the Divine.
