4.14  ·  Rating details ·  21 ratings  ·  3 reviews
Irene Nowell's work would be both impressive and important if she were only" a masterful Scripture scholar or a gifted spiritual guide or a compelling teacher. The fact that she is all three makes her an extraordinary resource for Christians today. In Pleading, Cursing, Praising, Nowell puts all of these gifts to use to offer a guide to praying with the psalms.

This book is a wonderful introduction to the Psalms. Each major group of Psalms is discussed and explained. Sr. Nowell relates each to our modern world by explaining the world that generated the Psalms. The explanations are insightful and add to the work of prayer. I'm am now more interested in daily Psalm prayer. ...more
