Make The Words Your Own: An Early Christian Guide to the Psalms
Author: Benjamin Wayman
God wants honest conversation with us. Yes, we should be singing praises to him, but we should also express the doubts and fears and anguish of our lives. How can we sing praises when we are in bondage to addiction? or mourning the death of a parent? or devastated by a terminal illness? We can’t. That’s why the Psalter was the essential prayer book of the early church. It represents the full range of human faith and emotion. Athanasius was one of the early church’s most prominent pastors. Ben Wayman introduces contemporary Christians to his ancient, classic guide for praying the book of Psalms—the earliest we possess. Pray along with Athanasius and make the words your own.
