Item Description...
Overview
The world of the psalmist is ever alert to the Lord's reign. Even the unspeakable, the sorrow of oppression, the terror at the unknown, the anguish of the unjustly wronged-all these voices of lament are transformed into voices of praise. In In the House of the Lord, Michael Jinkins poses the question "What would it mean for us to inhabit the world of the psalmist?" and in so doing draws us into a world that has long awaited our arrival. Focusing primarily on the psalms of lament, Jinkins shows what it would mean for us to learn to inhabit the world of the psalms: to enter a world where we recognize the reign of the Lord, to practice the habitation of God as a living discipline, and to discern the sacred quality of all life. He examines why the psalms are neglected in the hymns and liturgies of many churches and offers an introduction to the scope of the psalms. By providing a pastoral and liturgical reflection on the psalms, Jinkins shows in practical terms how individuals and communities can "inhabit" the psalms to make them a genuine framework for their faith life. The psalms invite us to enter into that world which shaped the theology and self-understanding of the people of Israel for centuries. In the House of the Lord offers a previously unimagined source for congregational leadership, pastoral care and counseling, spiritual renewal, and worship.

Publishers Description

The world of the psalmist is ever alert to the Lord's reign. Even the unspeakable, the sorrow of oppression, the terror at the unknown, the anguish of the unjustly wronged - all these voices of lament are transformed into voices of praise. In "In the House of the Lord," Michal Jinkins poses the question What would it mean for us to inhabit the world of the psalmist?" and in so doing draws us into a world that has long awaited our arrival.

Focusing primarily on the psalms of lament, Jinkins shows what it would mean for us to learn to inhabit the world of the psalms: to enter a world where we recognize the reign of the Lord, to practice the habitation of God as a living discipline, and to discern the sacred quality of all life.

By providing a pastoral and liturgical reflection on the psalms, Jinkins shows in practical terms how individuals and communities can "inhabit" the psalms to make them a genuine framework for their faith life.

The psalms invite us to enter into that world which shaped the theology and self-understanding of the people of Israel for centuries. "In the House of the Lord" offers a previously unimagined source for congregational leadership, pastoral care and counseling, spiritual renewal, and worship.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Use this book during Lent for preaching and teaching  Jan 20, 1999
Pastors, Christian Educators, Church Leaders, In a world where God is sugar-coated by the church, where preaching as therapy reigns, where God is our personal God at OUR beck and call, read this book. It will be an excellent resource during the season of Lent for preaching and teaching. Lament is not a topic often discussed in the Church. Lament is a true and necessary element in faith. To pretend otherwise is short-sighted, indeed. Buy the book and use it.
