The Church Mouse
A thoughtful guide to prayer and reflection on the Psalms with plenty of space for journalling.
In this beautifully designed hardback journal, theologian Paula Gooder leads readers through fifteen favourite Psalms, offering insight and tips on how to pray and reflect on some of the most profound poetry in the Hebrew Scriptures.
After a brief introduction to the history and context of each one, Paula invites readers to stand back and contemplate the Psalm as a whole, before zooming in to pick up on fascinating details and posing searching questions to deepen our understanding of God and ourselves.
Paula selects some of the most well-loved Psalms for the journal, including Psalms 1, 23, 42, 88, 139, 145, 150. Lined pages face each Psalm, with space for journalling following each question.
This journal would make a perfect Easter gift or to work through during Lent 2023.
Journalling the Psalms won 'Devotional/Gift Book of the Year' at the Christian Resources Together Awards, 2022.
