The biblical psalms have uplifted the hearts of millions of Bible readers for countless generations. Now, with a similar richness of language and spiritual insight, Martin Bell offers a treasury of new psalms. Making use of the ancient psalmic form, Bell articulates today’s struggles, heartbreaks, and joys. These are psalms to which you can turn for inspiration, hope, and the word that says you are not alone.
Walter Brueggemann says, “Bell’s poetry is not unlike liturgic dance. We are led to the edge of our rational discernment, and then slightly beyond with an awed gasp. His phrases are like a cascade in which newness tumbles out, so quick and so crafted.”
John Killinger adds, “Here are modern psalms worthy to put beside the best of the ancient ones.”
