9781594732348: Psalms: A Spiritual Commentary (SkyLight Illuminations)

Let the Psalms help you forge a deeper connection to the Divine.

Showing how the Psalms give profound and candid expression to both our highest aspirations and our deepest pain, the late, highly respected Cistercian Abbot M. Basil Pennington shares his reflections on some of the most beloved passages from the Bible’s most widely read book. In this companion volume to The Song of Songs: A Spiritual Commentary, Pennington is once again joined by Jewish artist Phillip Ratner, whose evocative works will lead you into more meaningful contemplation of the inner spirit of the Psalms.

Pennington describes how the monastic tradition of regular reflection on the Psalms―a technique St. Benedict called the “work of God,” or Opus Dei―can help you transform your everyday life into a powerful life of prayer. Enriched by Jewish and Christian faith, the drawings and meditations speak to every person wanting both to connect with their most human longings and to forge a vital connection with the Divine.

From the Inside Flap:

Join Abbot M. Basil Pennington as he journeys deep into the beauty and artistry of the Psalms, an artistry that continues to speak to people of many faiths today. Through his original translations and commentary, Pennington affirms that "the Psalms are certainly the great, living bridge that unites the Jewish and Christian tradition and life" and highlights the unique impact they continue to play in our lives, including:

Psalm 1--Our guide to the path of happiness and abundance
Psalm 46--Our challenge to cherish and preserve life, not destroy it
Psalm 78--Our inspiration to trust in God's loving protection
Psalm 137--Our encouragement to embrace, not deny, life's difficulties
Psalm 150--Our key to praise, joy and holy ecstasy
and much more ...

About the Author:

M. Basil Pennington, OCSO, was a monk for more than fifty years. He lived at St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts and was the author of many modern spiritual classics, including Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer.



Phillip Ratner is a multimedia artist who works in sculpture, painting, etched glass, tapestry, drawing, and the graphic arts. Twenty years ago he opened the Israel Bible Museum in Safad, Israel.
