SELAH! Loving the Psalms

These variations on the Psalms propose a new object for the love and devotion embodied in those ancient songs: from a distant and silent God, back to individual human beings who delight in the law of Love.

Overview

These variations on the Psalms propose a new object for the love and devotion embodied in those ancient songs: from a distant and silent God, back to individual human beings who delight in the law of Love.

After all: why would an omnipotent God be so desirous of our love? And what have been the consequences, of the best part of our love being so directed, so consumed?

Part of the hope of this work is that there may be other poetry monopolised by religion that can be restored to its human origins, for human beings to appreciate on that humble but compelling level.

For surely the main purpose of songs is the instruction, sustenance and refinement of the human heart, especially the hearts of lonely people, the broken-hearted and discouraged, who have so much need of sustenance.

Meet the Author

I am a writer living in a sunny city by the beach. My major works are intensely personal creations, centred around an explicit ethical framework extolling courage, sacrifice, and the redemptive power of Love. These works employ scriptural and literary themes/allusions, and also the elevated language and cadences of scripture, but they are also at heart just plain old love stories, which are after all the stories that most people (even the sophisticated ones!) really crave to read. I hope you enjoy. P. Julian pjulianauthor@gmail.com
