Item Description...
Overview
Praying the Scriptures sets a number of biblical prayers in the context of biblical revelation so that they are seen as celebrations of God's great saving deeds of the Exodus and the Resurrection. Thus they bring us into the very heart of the experience of salvation in that ultimate prayer-event that is the Eucharist. In this context prayers of petition become acts of trust in the goodness of the God who entered our world definitively in the person of Jesus Christ, while prayers of gratitude convert the lives of believers from fear and guilt to courage and joy.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not so much Dumm  Mar 21, 2007
This book was recommended to me . However, I found it to be very 'dry'. Perhaps because it is so scholarly?
