Because it is sometimes challenging for today's Christians to move from the frenetic pace and noisy world of today's society and enter into the silence and stillness of contemplative praying, Jeanie Miley provides a way of using the psalms as a doorway into prayer. Reading the psalm indicated for each day’s meditation and then reflecting on the day's reading, persons are invited to "pray the psalms" in a way that connects the ancient prayers with their own present-day experience. By moving back and forth between the psalm and your own experience in prayer, Ancient Psalms for Contemporary Pilgrims provides a process through which the Living God can lead you to a deeper reflection on your own life.
Jeanie Miley's lyrical and comforting book leads the modern day pilgrim into a sacred experience through reading and contemplating the psalms. Taking time to be silent allows us to know God, and this book skillfully guides the reader into the quiet and holy place of prayer. It is in this silence that the still, small voice of God can be heard. Reading and reflecting on the psalms unites us with all those, throughout the ages, who have prayed them. This book gives nourishment to the soul and will change the reader's life.
