One of the world's most trust Bible scholars, N.T. Wright, in The Case for the Psalms turns his attention to the Hebrew book of prayers.
The book of Psalms, the book of prayers Jesus and Paul knew best, have served as the central hymnbook for the church since its inception--until today. As such, Wright calls us to return to the Psalms as a steady, vital component of healthy Christian living.
Reading, studying, and praying the Psalms is God's means for teaching us what it means to be human:
how to express our emotions and yearning
how to reconcile anger and compassion
how to see our story in God's sweeping narrative
Wright provides the tools for understanding and incorporating these crucial verses into our own lives. His conclusion is simple: all Christians need to read, pray, sing, and live the Psalms. Slightly Imperfect.
