An ecumenical course in five sessions written by Bishop Stephen Cottrell- ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific
The ancient poems we call Psalms are over 2000 years old. They were written in very different times from our own when humans could travel at the speed of a camel - not at the speed of sound. But these songs have stood the test of time for they address many of the problems we still face: violence, injustice, anger - and bewilderment. Why do the wicked prosper? Where is God when we suffer? In this 5-session course, Bishop Stephen Cottrell - a prolific and popular author - reflects on the psalms in general (and five psalms in particular). He invites us to join him as he does so.
Sets out the words as heard on the course audio in an easy-to-follow format. Cross-references with the track numbers of the recorded material.
