Reviews - What do our customers think?
Written to convince Laity of the appropriatness of praying the Psalms (the Daily Office)  Feb 29, 2008
This book seems more of an argument that laity can and should engage in praying The Daily Office (or Litany of the Hours) as part of their spiritual quest. It is written in a time of renewed monastic interest in which spirituality seemed limited to the professional religious. Overall, certainly not one of Merton's pivotal works nor one of his best.
very pleased  Jan 13, 2008
This book was shipped to me very quickly, and it was in beautiful, like new, condition.
Praying the Psalms by Thomas Merton  Mar 28, 2007
A small book that gives the reader serveral ideas on praying and getting more of the Psalms.
Beyond the Liturgy of the Hours  Jan 23, 2006
As one who has recently discovered the beauty of praying the Liturgy of the Hours, I have found Thomas Merton's little treatise on praying the Psalms to be both enriching and encouraging... encouraging me to look to the whole Psalm for the fullness of the meaning intended by each Psalmist (the LofH often uses only part of a psalm for the daily reading.)

His listing of the various types of psalms by number makes it an easy reference for choosing a particular theme for one's prayer.

Typical of the meditational writers of the 1950s (before Vatican II) he does speak of obedience and paternal leadership in prayer,etc, but are these qualities too old fashioned for our troubled times? Maybe not!
An answered prayer!  Oct 31, 2005
This book answered many questions I had for years about the Psalms and difficulties I had in praying the Psalms. It was a real eye-opener for me! I won't go into detail because I don't want to spoil the beauty of the surprise awaiting the readers of this wonderful little book. It is a short and easy read and opens the beautiful world of the Psalms to those seeking a deeper understanding. I discovered it when my spiritual director loaned me his copy to read, and I am ever grateful for the revelations gained from this little book. So when I found it at this, I had to purchase a copy to share when the occasion arises...and it has!
