Description : A prominent rabbi shows how to apply the wisdom of the Psalms in our daily lives Traditionally attributed to King David, among others, the book of Psalms collects 150 songs in praise of the Lord-songs that contain some of the Bible's most beautiful and inspiring verses. Now, one of America's most esteemed rabbis elucidates the meaning of the Psalms and explains how their healing wisdom can help us in our everyday lives. Examining each of the Psalms in turn, Rabbi Joshua Haberman shows how these "dialogues with God" offer comfort in our struggles to cope with adversity and improve our lot in life, whether we're seeking deliverance from suffering, giving praise for our good fortune, or commemorating a special occasion. Though this is the only mainstream book on the Psalms written by a rabbi, the book is for people of all spiritual traditions-Jews, Christians, and people of any tradition who want to tap into the healing power of the Psalms. Joshua O. Haberman (Washington, DC) is President of the Foundation for Jewish Studies. The former Senior Rabbi at the Washington Hebrew Congregation, he has preached at the White House and at the nationally televised memorial service to honor victims of 9/11.

Description : "The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my helper; I put my trust in God, for he gives me strength; he is my protector and by his power, he saves me. He will be forever my refuge." Psalms 18:2. Tina King watched as her mother-the person who filled her life with words of peace, hope, faith, and courage-struggled to hold on to her own faith. Tina's mother had always lived by the prayers of King David, prayers that gave her peace and courage after she was diagnosed with third-stage breast cancer. This amazing woman held on to hope, went through 16 rounds of chemotherapy, and was preparing to walk her first 5k to benefit breast cancer. God had given her the strength and the will to live. Four months into her recovery, Tina's mother was devastated to learn that the cancer had returned-this time in her bones. Tina's mom was now fighting a new battle, and not just a battle for her life. She had lost her faith in God. As her child, Tina had to do whatever she could to get her mother to believe again, to regain the peace and solace of her faith on this new journey. "I took those words of King David and read them as if they were being lifted off the pages right into my mother's soul." Psalms of Healing is a collection of modernized verse written specifically for the cancer community-or anyone who is facing an overwhelming battle. These words provide faith, hope, and peace for the most challenging times.

Description : More than any other part of the Old Testament, the book of Psalms reveals to us the intimacy possible between God and humanity. As songs and prayers of praise and lament, the psalms are unsurpassed in their variety, depth and range. They encompass the whole breadth of human emotion: hatred and love, despair and joy, resentment and gratitude, fear of abandonment and deep trust. They encourage us to be honest and thorough in our dealings with God, and they teach us how to praise him, seek him and rest in him. Using personal anecdote, a witty and lively style, and drawing on his considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay takes us deep into the unfolding story of the Old Testament.
