Wisely, Pray The Psalms

A Prayerful Companion To Reading The Psalms

by Ambrose Tinsley


Price: £9.99
Publisher:Columba Press
Published:01 October 2014

I found this book to be a lovely look at some of the body of the Psalms, giving thoughtful and interesting overviews of the people we meet in the psalms, of the situations we find in the psalms, in the resonances of where the psalms echo our situations today.

Gently read and with thoughtful consideration and questions posed ... and answered to some degree ... the author does indeed lead us wisely into a reading of the Psalms and as such he is indeed, through this book, a prayerful companion with us on this journey.

However even so I'm not sure I find the title quite matches with the book, though perhaps that's more my problem of expecting a book with as much emphasis on prayer as is in the title to be echoed more in the content. I think I thought the book would be a more practical book on using the psalms as prayer, rather than a more devotional style commentaryon the psalms.

This said though this book was still a delight to read and yes did offer insight and reflection that wasvery helpful.
