The Psalter is the prayerbook of the people of God. The tradition of incorporating the Psalter in the teaching and life and worship of the primitive community was maintained in the centuries following the apostolic period and continued to provide a major influence upon the thought and spirituality of Christians throughout patristic times. Perhaps no other book of the Bible has been more fully commented upon and explained than the Psalter, right on through the Middle Ages and into Reformation times. - from Foreward by John Eudes Bamberger, Abbott of the Genesee

The Abbey Psalter: The Book of Psalms Used by the Trappist Monks of Genesee Abbey based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This is one of those extraordinary books that is a delight to the eye and to the soul. The Trappist monks of Genessee Abbey have hand-calligraphed the contemporary, yet poetic Grail translation of the Psalms, drawing the reader into the spirit of the cloister. It makes a very nice gift, epecially when accompanied by Henri Nouwen's Genessee Diary.
