Brilliant professor, Sr. Dianne Bergant, guides you through the greatest work of prayer ever written.
Under the guidance of Sr. Bergant, PhD, the former President of the Catholic Biblical Association of America, you will experience the timeless power of the psalms.
Thomas Merton writes, “The Church loves the Psalms because in them she sings of her experience of God, of her union with the incarnate Word, of her contemplation of God in the Mystery of Christ.” As you journey through the Psalms, you will see how they are essential both in Scripture and the life of the Church. After exploring the theology of the Psalms, you will examine such vital topics as the sacraments, the Liturgy of the Hours, and Lectio Divina.
The Psalms exemplify the core themes of biblical faith: the holiness of God, Divine mercy, and the character of covenant. An essential prayer that nourished Jesus, they continue to provide believers with a path to faith, gratitude, praise, and joy.
Renew your spirituality with the life-giving power of the Psalms today.

A lover of the Psalms
Let me say up front that I am not Catholic, however I learned so much from this book. I have always loved the Psalms, and I have often wondered about the Catholic church and the Psalms, so I downloaded this book. I must say I am very happy I did. My favorite chapter was the last, The whole chapter was on Lectio Divina, and I have been trying to meditate on Bible verses, this is an amazing book
