Product DescriptionThe Psalms of the Hebrew Scriptures can be a little intimidating at times. Sr. Joan Chittister, internationally known Benedictine nun, author and speaker, makes them feel like old friends in her book Songs of the Heart Reflections on the Psalms. The Psalms are the songs of the history of the Jewish people but also the history of any person searching for God in their lives today. Chittister offers reflections on 25 Psalms giving the reader quiet speculative time away from the stress and chaos of the world today.
A helpful aspect of Songs of the Heart is where she takes portions of a Psalm and then offers points for contemplation or meditation. The book gives you a centering way of starting the day or a meditation on which to reflect on the day that has ended. As with all her writing, her words are heartfelt and sincere and she writes in a way that is easy to understand. She says she hopes the readers will "find new meaning at the core of life and make songs of their own".
