Praying with the Psalms is an excellent way to start the day! Eugene Peterson addresses the major issues of life and our relationship to the everfaithful and loving God through thought-provoking meditations and heartfelt prayers. This is a book I would recommend to anyone who would like to get to know God better but has trouble with the discipline of daily Bible reading. The daily readings don't take long, yet within one year all of the 150 Psalms are covered. Throughout the generations the Psalms have always been considered a place where one is able to clearly see the heart of God. Praying with the Psalms helps us in this endeavor. It is also a good book to give as a gift to a friend or a loved one.

If you're familiar with "The Message" by Eugene Peterson, you will enjoy this daily devotional. I love what he says in his introduction, "We are most ourselves when we pray" and "When that deep, deep center of our lives is exposed -- our core humanity, which biblical writers so vigorously designate as "heart" -- we unthinkingly revert to our first language: we pray."

What I like about this book is it is "little", each day's devotiional is only 1 or 2 versus from a Psalm, but Peterson's short insightful paragraph and prayer are clear, consise, helping to expose, through a Psalm, what is in your heart and mind and bringing you back to where you need to be -- In His Presence.

i CONSIDER IT A GREAT WAY TO SEE THE pSALMS DIFFERENTLY. EACH DAY IS REALLY ONLY A SHORT PARAGRAGH. A one or two sentence analysis or thought an dthe a 1 or 2 sentence prayer related to the days verses.

There just isn't enough material here to make a good devotional. It reads like something that was just tossed out there to make some extra money.

Everyone needs to pray something positive--and the thing I learned most was how to pray the negative ones without fear of blame, shame or getting zapped by God. There are enemies and we can pray and forgive and move on to peace. Ranks with Bonhoeffer's Praying the Psalms.

Good experience with sender.

there is something for every day of the year and it covers every psalm, which is exactly what i was looking for. it's not terribly in depth, but i guess it doesn't need to be. i like it. i like peterson.

I love the slow pace of this book by favorite author Eugene H. Peterson. It allows me to savor each section of psalms slowly and thoughtfully. It is a refreshing and worthwhile approach.

I really don't like devotional books and have never used them but the ones that Eugene Peterson has are exceptional. I plan to use this one and to buy some others for friends and family. This one on Psalms is especially good.

As only Peterson could do it. He uses clear and concise words to reveal the deep truths found in the Psalms. I use it to begin my almost every day, and it continues to bless my spiritual life.
