The psalms are woven through Catholic devotion, culture and history, yet for many Catholics they remain an unopened gift. The Catholic Companion to the Psalms offers a treasury of methods and information for understanding and praying the psalms. It brings the psalms to life for Catholics and entices them to mine the riches of these simple but powerful prayers and to use them for ardent heart-to-heart conversations with God. Chapters include: God the Lyricist, Adapting the Psalms for Christians, The Psalms as Poetry, Psalm Modes, Praying in Concert with the Psalms, Lectio Divina with the Psalms. Book jacket.
