Out of her own painful experience with loneliness and suffering, Marva Dawn has written this book of meditations on the Psalms. This new edition offers comfort, guidance, and answers to some of the most troubling questions which those who are suffering face.
Many writers, both secular and religious, decry the loneliness that so many in our postmodern society suffer, but few offer real solace that is deeper than mere human words. This volume, first written during Marva Dawns most painful single years, offers genuine guidance and comfort for those who struggle with suffering and loneliness in their lives. Dawn explores portions of the Psalms to show readers the depth of God's comfort and lead them to the affection, encouragement, and sense of belonging found only in Christian community. Questions for reflection, discussion, and positive action in every chapter also help to meet the pains of loneliness in an understanding and concrete way. This volume will be invaluable as a source for personal devotions and for strengthening one's relationship with God.
Marva J. Dawn (Ph.D., University of Notre Dame) serves as theologian/educator under Christians Equipped for Ministry of Vancouver, Washington and as a Teaching Fellow, Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver.
Her books Powers, Weakness, and the Tabernacling of God and The Unnecessary Pastor with Eugene Peterson both received Christianity Today's book award in the category of the Church/Pastoral Leadership. Her other books has been quite provocative with regard to contemporary trends in worship and society such as Reaching Out Without Dumbing Down; Is It A Lost Cause? and A Royal Waste of time.
Most recently she has authored Being Well When We're Ill: Wholeness and Hope in Spite of Infirmity and In the Beginning, GOD: Creation, Culture, and the Spiritual Life.
