Praises, Prayers, and Curses: Conversations with the Psalms

Front Cover
Forward Movement, 2005 - Bible - 312 pages
An astonishing plunge into the Psalter resulting in the most amazingly honest conversation with the Psalms encountered in print. Schmidt presents a bold yet refreshing prism of grace on each of the 150 most misinterpreted songs in all of Scripture. Countering the notions of the Psalms as meek, mild, and honey-coated, he tackles the despair and hurt of the psalmists headon, wrestling intimately with some of his own dark places. the result is as if to see the Psalms for the first time-or for the uninitiated, to see in them God's truth and wisdom for his people in all times and seasons. Destined to become a treasure for all who seek to serve God in this confusing and broken world, readers will return again and again, as sharing in the author's encounters will lead them to re-think and re-examine their faith relationship to God.
