Brueggemann meditates on the emotional range of our longings and gratitudes in the Psalms, revealing how this bold outpouring of our full selves to the divine has effects far beyond introspection.

He traces how the language of the psalms offers a template for liturgies that shape not only our collective worship and communities, but the worlds they create and sustain. Words of worship do not fall vacant and inactive - they help bring into being realities both sacred and socio-political.

The language of worship, when used intentionally and with care, helps to create a reality marked by fidelity, abundance, truth, hope, and dependence on God. With Brueggemann as guide, readers can apprehend the potency of the Psalms’ bold petition and dialogue with God, giving voice to the distressed and anticipating the transformation of our lives together and as a society.

Questions for reflection are included at the end of each chapter, making this book ideal for individual or group study.
