This two-part volume of heuristic essays and sermons brings together mainline and evangelical scholars and preachers to help preachers to engage the world scripture imagines. The goal of this collection of essays and sermons is two-fold: to help preachers to draw congregations to life as it is uttered and imagined in the Psalter; and to help them to speak from the Psalms of the reality of the transcendent God who, through these texts and their implied narratives, longs to claim central position in our lives. It begins with a lively dialogue that orients readers to the worlds clearly conceived in Psalms. The second half of the book appropriates this orientation with sermons for Christian congregations.Contributors include: Walter Brueggemann, Ronald Cox, John Mark Hicks, J. Clinton McCann Jr., and Paul Scott Wilson. Sermons contributed by Dave Bland, Jeff M. Christian, David Fleer, James Howell, Mark Love, and J. Clinton McCann Jr.
