REFRESH YOUR PRAYER LIFE WITH THIS FRESH TAKE ON THE PSALMS.
WE ALL PRAY. AND WE ALL STRUGGLE AT IT. WE NEED HELP. For thousands of years, God’s people have turned to the Psalms for that help. This ancient collection of prayers, songs, and wisdom poems has been a faithful guide for those who pray. Even Jesus used them. There’s no better place to shape a biblical spirituality that takes into account the realities of everyday life.
TRANSFORMING OLD LINES INTO STRIKINGLY MODERN ONES, Peter Santucci’s new translation of Psalms offers a fresh and down-to-earth rendering of the Hebrew text. Frustration, questioning, and complaint, alongside praise, joy, and trust—Santucci invites us to experience the wide range of the psalmists’ deepest emotions: faith and fear combined. Clearly the Bible’s message is for us today! Enter in and enjoy!

THE PSALMS ARE THE PRAYERBOOK OF THE BIBLE. Here we are invited to pray with utter honesty, leaving nothing out including the hard, the bad and the ugly and turn to God with all of our might. In this fresh and creative rendering, Peter Santucci unlocks the Psalms for us, removes archaic language and recovers for us what it means to pray all of life back to God like a reversed thunder. Don’t miss this!
