Here is a wonderful book to look out for from a skilled and humane theologian  and my commendation for my friend  Carla

Psalms Redux & Prayers for the Day by Carla Grosch-Miller

 9781848256392[1]

We human beings become so easily distracted and even bored with the familiar. The comfort of the ‘well-known’ so easily can ossify into complacency. We need, perhaps, to be shaken out of our relationship with metaphor and language into a new and more imaginative perspective. Carla does just this in a book which restores and refreshes these ancient texts. There is a life and energy and beauty in this particular struggle for a birthing of metaphor and language that both does justice to the mystery of God but grounds us in the realities of our embodied striving attempts for flourishing. This book is  beautiful, disturbing, compelling and wise.
