This book points believers to this ageless prayer book of life. Examining the major themes of the Psalms, the author tries to rescue the impassioned cry of the psalmist from superficial piety and disuse. Brother Benedict Janecko, O.S.B., shows that one finds the heart of religious experience in ordinary living, whether we are "on a high," "in the pits,' or somewhere in between. The reader of this small book will recognize his or her own struggle to trust, to forgive, to repent, to wonder, to endure, to cope, to find meaning, to get along, to express oneself -- and in doing so, will know the truest religious experience: God living and reigning within one's own life.
