The St. Andrew Spiritual Reading Group will discuss Walter Brueggemann’s Praying the Psalms: Engaging Scripture and the Life of the Spirit (2nd Edition). The Psalms were Jesus’ prayer book and they were the prayer book for the early church. When the first Book of Common Prayer was put together the Psalter was included. It’s the largest part of the Book of Common Prayer yet presents problems for modern sensibilities
Although Brueggemann is a scripture scholar, this particular book is designed to help the reader in prayer. It’s more for the heart than the head. Even if you don't have time to read the book before the meeting, our discussion will leave you with a better ability to pray the Psalms as intended.
