The last weekly #Advent reflection from #GodWithUs Your Christmas Journey – the daily #Christmas reflections begin… https://t.co/2CBvmGPlH4
Author(s): Gillian Cooper, Steven Croft, Paula Gooder, Peter Graystone, Malcolm Guite, Helen Ann Hartley, Barbara Mosse, John Pritchard, Mark Oakley, Ben Quash, John Sentamu, Angela Tilby, Jeremy Worthen, Lucy Winkett, Ian Adams, Christopher Cocksworth, Joanna Collicutt
Reflections on the Psalms provides insightful commentary on each of the Psalms from the same experienced team of writers that have made Reflections for Daily Prayer so successful. It offers inspiring and undated reflections on all 150 psalms, with longer psalms split into parts in accordance with the Lectionary.
Each reflection is accompanied by its corresponding Psalm refrain and prayer from the Common Worship Psalter, making this a valuable resource for personal or devotional use.
Specially written introductions by Paula Gooder and Steven Croft explore the Psalms and the Bible and the Psalms in the life of the Church.
