Overview

Sung, whispered, shouted, and groaned by Muslims and Jews, Protestants and Catholics, Bob Marley and J. S. Bach, the Psalms express the faith of a thousand generations. People have used psalms to voice their deepest anguish and delight, to comfort others, to express emotions they hardly dare to admit.

In this book Kevin Adams shares stories of unlikely psalm prayers and an unpredictable God, opening up the honest and earthy world of the psalms in new and unexpected ways. And he invites us to find our own story within that community of faith.

Reading this book you will find yourself underlining an especially poignant verse here or jotting notes in the margin there, as the psalms come alive through the stories of those who have used and abused them through the centuries.

Editorial Reviews

Neil Plantinga
"John Donne, Kanye West, Leonard Bernstein, Metallica, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Seinfeld, the God of the psalms-they're all here in their own words. If you can't find yourself in this amazing tour of life, you aren't yet fully human. If C. S. Lewis were a 21st-century California church planter, he would write this book."
Haddon Robinson
"The highest compliment I can pay to this book is after I finished reading it I was eager to preach on the Psalms again."
