Using 90 selected passages from the Psalms, Peter Wallace has put together a stimulating devotional full of fresh ideas for finding ways to connect with God, with one another, and with the world at large. As a result, readers will gain encouragement and strength to face their uncertain world with the wisdom and love of the God who so deeply loves them.

“Peter Wallace is a beautiful thinker and a deep, humane soul; this book distills that beauty and reveals that depth. We could ask for no better guide to the comfort, the wisdom--and the poetry--that the Psalms hold for us searchers.”—Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier Clay

“Peter Wallace understands the power of the psalms, and the need to engage them—all of them, praise and lament and confusion alike. Through the use of his own experience—his own inner life—he opens up each of the psalms for us so that we can see them anew, while in his concluding prayers for each section, he acknowledges the difficulty of many of these texts, the trials in many of our lives—and the ongoing goodness of God.”—Greg Garrett, author of Crossing Myself
