Editorial Reviews

Review

For over three decades, Lynn Anderson has nourished my soul and directed my path. When he speaks, I listen. When God speaks, Lynn listens. In this book, he teaches us to do the same, taking us to the wellspring of worship: the Psalms. --Max Lucado, bestselling author

The book in your hand will tell you something you like and something you don't like. It will tell you that there are no short cuts and five-minute magical routines that will automatically usher you into spiritual formation land. But it will also tell you this: there is only one way to grow in our relationship with God and that is to pray, and the one sure method of learning to pray is to pray with the Psalms. In the middle of your Bible is a collection of prayers; God gave them to you to learn how to pray. --Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University

Talking Back to God is at once an eloquent defense of the Psalms, an inspirational narrative of a great man of God, a practical guide to personal prayer, and a soaring celebration of God's faithfulness in times of crisis and trial. --Darryl Tippens, author of Pilgrim Heart: The Way of Jesus in Everyday Life

I don't believe I can adequately express in word the influence or importance this book has had in my journey. The irony is that in this book Dr. Anderson teaches us how to express those deeper feelings to God via praying the Psalms. As we pray them, we move to a deeper, greater encounter with a loving God. I would be doing you a HUGE disservice if I did not express the importance of having this tool in your arsenal.

Generally the basic prayers we are taught, and how we're taught to pray, I would equate with being the B-league in baseball. I would equate praying the Psalms with being on the All-Star team in baseball. I'm not at all saying that if you don't pray the Psalms, that your prayers are meaningless. That's absolutely not the case at all. God hears us right where we are, and with whatever capacity we have. What I am saying, is if you want to experience a deeper and closer encounter with God, then this is where you need to be.

Praying the Psalms gives us a voice when we often don't know what to pray, but know that there's something in our heart to pray. Over the past few days, I have been able to more fully express my fears, concerns, inadequacies, and more to God; and truly have them laid at His feet. I've come to understand more fully that the trappings of life that we all desire don't come close to being in the presence of and having a deep encounter with the Most High. I've been able to fully experience what's known as the "sweet spot" where everything is just laid bare at the feet of a loving God.

Do yourself a huge favor, and get this valuable resource/tool for your walk with God. You will never be the same, and you will not regret it.

This book helped me to gain a different view of my prayer life and helped me to regain some of the lost zeal I had for talking to God. I not even through it yet. :)

With the heart of a pastor and the words of a scholar, Lynn Anderson leads you to a much deeper and more meaningful understanding of the Psalms in your own life. His encouragement to "Pray the psalms" can change your prayer life and change you as you draw close to God through the words of Israel's ancient song writers!

This book is a great introduction to the power of the psalms and how they can be utilized each day in the life of a disciple. Anderson's book reflects his lifelong relationship with the psalms and how they are more than just pieces of spiritual poetry. They are the very words we pray back to God in every human experience.
