How can the psalms, those ancient Hebrew songs of praise, speak to today's believers? Can these prayers enhance the prayer life of such believers? By examining fifty-five psalms, the author demonstrates how these prayers can speak to different stages in the life of individuals and communities. Some speak to moments of balance and harmony. Others look to our times of disaster and disillusionment. Still others reflect on God's capacity to surprise and change our lives. They are indeed Psalms for all Seasons.

A blend of biblical scholarship and pastoral theology, this work is especially well-suited for adult Bible study groups, college courses, prayer groups, those who pray the Liturgy of the Hours, or any group or individual with an interest in the psalms. The inclusive-language 1991 NAB translation is used.
